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.
We had a wonderful evening!
good food but slow service
Best high tea in Cape Town
Great place, great service and great food.
Not only was the service outstanding, but the friendly, polite and helpful staff made the afternoon such a pleasure. We had a health issue with one of the people in our party who suffers with Parkinson's. Every single staff member was so kind and helpful. They brought us a wheel chair and helped to take him to our car. Thank you to everyone for making our visit to the Conservatory such a pleasure. Brian Botha
Daneille you so amazing thank you so much for making my sisters birthday extra special. Everything was super amazing. Ooh my God the place is spectacular. Wow!! We loved everything and thanks Alexa Singer who recommended the the place.
Delicious bobotie Excellent service
Our party was very happy with the food, the service and the venue. Thank you.
Friendly reception & service as always. All expectations met. Our guests very satisfied - Enjoyable lunch.
I would rate The Conservatory five out of five for that cheese soufflé alone! I'm still swooning. But even before that, the venue immediately wowed us and the staff were so friendly. I'm so glad we decided to go here as part of Restaurant Week.
Fabulous every time apart from last night when the main restaurant was used for a private function. As a guest we felt the service and food was not up the the high standard we are used to receiving. Food was a little late and not hot on arrival.
The bobotie was too runny and liquid The service was slow and poor; there was no manager present at all We asked 3 times for the dessert menu and then decided not to order dessert and then were unable to find any staff for 15 minutes to get the bill Overall disappointed
The high tea experience was amazing, great service and it surpassed my expectations.
Beautiful food and ambience. Unobtrusive service. It was a lovely evening
This was a lovely experience. Food was beautifully presented and tasteful and your friendly staff deserve 5 stars. Thank you for a fabulous evening.
We simply loved everything, such a beautiful and peaceful venue. A true gem.
Beautiful spot, and great service. The starters and dessert were good, but the main meat courses let them down. The garnishes and accompaniments were thoughtful, but the meat was overcooked and disappointing. When paying that amount of money, meat/ poultry/ fish should not do anything less than melt in one's mouth. Unfortunately it did not come close. Came away feeling like we'd paid far too much for average.
Lovely setting just a bit noisy, food was good but not outstanding
The food was very good, service was lacking.
Always excellent in every way!
Excellent service Food was delicious
Delicious food, and thoughful touches such as amuse bouche and bread tray were lovely. Portion size of the main could be larger, but overall great experience.
We celebrated our 13th anniversary at the Conservatory, what a treat. Food was heavenly, our table overlooked the majestic gardens, we were doted on by the staff and felt really special. Thank you for an unforgettable evening.
Gorgeous setting to enjoy a sublime afternoon tea! Highly recommended.
Had a lovely time, thanks. Wonderful food, lovely view... Just perfect.
