About The Conservatory

This sophisticated, all-day dining option at The Cellars-Hohenort is a triumphant display of great quality produce unified on a plate to signify the best of comfort food.

Fresh produce from the gardens are incorporated into the seasonal menu of The Conservatory, while traditional classics and even what was Liz McGrath’s own recipes make an appearance.

​The Conservatory is built around a 200-year-old oak tree, its enormous girth displayed in an elegant glass frame, and its proud branches stretching out above the diners.

Views over the renowned Table Mountain and the camphor trees that lie at its foot form the backdrop for this restaurant. Comfortable ambience and attention to detail complement the varied menu, a reflection itself of the diverse culinary team behind The Conservatory.

Regular communication with regular clients to advise of special events, menus, wines, your chefs profile or a recipie or tip or two etc would be a great and interesting way to keep clients tupdated.

We had a very pleasant experience. The food was amazing! The garden is beautiful and made amazing photos (which the staff was very willing to assist with :) ). Our waiter was extremely nice, he made a lot of effort to make us feel welcome. He even organized a "Bride to Be" dessert plate for me. We'll definitely be back. Thank you very much

we were a little dismayed to find a few hairs in our high tea, i think between the 4 of us we found 4 or 5 . they looked a little like cat hairs? or fibres as they were fairly straight. we didnt complain on the day, but it left a somewhat uncomfortable feeling with us

Delroy provided excellent service. Everyone at your establishment was very professional and extremely helpful. The food was exquisite and very good value for money. It was our first visit and we will most definitely return to the warm and friendly environment encountered at the The Conservatory.

Dreadful Customer Service - The food arrived over an hour and a half after ordering (the full meal was paid for 2 days in advance when the reservation was made) I was not compensated in any way except with an apology! I will NEVER again visit this 5 star establishment, or recommend it to anyone.

We dined at The Conservatory Restaurant on Saturday evening past. A table for 2. We arrived early and chose to go straight to our table. We were the only people seated inside the restaurant, a handful of people enjoying a drink from the Bar. We ordered: 1 x Winter special 1 x Starter and Main off the ala Carte menu Bread and Starters arrived promptly and both were delicious. We waited a long while for our mains - Duck off the Winter menu and a Rib-Eye steak medium rare with a side salad The steak arrived medium well - well done By Now there were exactly 8 other patrons besides the 2 of us How could you not get the steak right with so few people in the Restaurant? I ate the steak as it arrived so long after the main and it was a special occasion evening of which i did not wish to spoil knowing that by the time a new steak arrived my partner would have finished eating making it a bit awkward The steak was very disappointing the more I ventured into it with a nasty piece of gristle that should have been trimmed off by Chef. The salad was the next poor offering. It was a pile of mixed greens in a deepish conical bowl topped with 3 quartered pieces of artichoke, a tablespoon of seeds, 8 minute pieces of diced avocado and smatterings of wafer thin cucumber and plump and ample halved baby tomatoes. The dressing? Non existent. The salad was boring, dry, completely lacking in flavors and sorely lacking in avo and artichoke, the main ingredients of this salad. We finished our meal and opted after dessert to relax in the warm lounge and enjoy 2 Khalua coffees which were delicious. But before retreating to the comfort of the warm lounge, we were unable to pay electronically with a card for some reason or other We had to manually fill out a form - again adding a tacky edge to a special evening. Whilst this might have been beyond your control, it just closed the evening with a dull tone. So in summary: The Food was poor - salad and steak The ambience was poor - only 10 patrons for dinner the entire night The Service was very good The Irish Coffee’s were very good Value for money: Not good The Bill transacting was unfortunate We eat out in the Valley often and there are other 5* offerings that quite frankly are way better in all round offerings than we experienced at The Conservatory on Saturday night.

Lovely place, best food and service, and - my favorite - a top wine list. We have been a regular guest in the past and will return 100 pro whenever we will be back to the area!

Does not seem like you take too much notice of this. Very poor wine selection - especially in terms of estates and prices. Souffle gorgeous in taste, but solid and over-cooked. Bottom had a thick crust and was dark brown. Main course of tuna was a disgrace and I am surprised the patron did not send it back. Clearly had been slowly fried in a pan to the colout of canned tuna. Have no idea how any self-respecting chef could have let that leave his kitchen. Dessert with the lemon curd's cake was dry and tasteless. Clearly you need to up your game.

I cannot recommend The Conservatory highly enough. Thank you to the incredible staff who went out of their way to make my daughter’s 21st a huge success - nothing was too much trouble. The food was outstanding and the venue absolutely stunning. What a memorable day we had. I hope to visit again soon.
