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.

The only fault...my husband asked for his beef to be medium rare and it arrived well cooked..it is difficult to find any problems in such a great place. It is our favourite Cape Town restaurant.

The dinner was lovely and the setting stunning, however the service was really poor, we had no service for the longest time and then asked the hostess to assist us with water and a drinks menu to which she rudely told us our waitress would handle that. She repeatedly refused to serve us. The waitress was lovely but was so inexperienced that we felt so sorry for her. She was out of her depth. For an establishment such as this, it was disappointing.

Akhona was professional, efficient and warm. It was much appreciated that, as requested in advance, the one guest was given a vegetarian high tea. Our table on the edge of the patio was a treat and the birthday girl was made to feel very special with her happy birthday plate.

I went for breakfast and dinner on the same day. It was clear regarding the breakfast that the venue was not used to external walk ins which made us unsure regarding processes. I suggest the floor manager takes the opportunity to explain the various options as the guests are seated. The dinner was fantastic. Quality food, great service at a reasonable price. Well done, I will certainly eat at the Conservatory again.

We had a lovely afternoon. The food was glorious. The atmosphere serene, surrounded by beautiful grounds. Great value for money. There was a slight misunderstanding at the end of the day. We were a party of 9 including 2 kids under 12 yrs old. When I had, a week prior, booked with Mishka she had indicated that we would be charged for 7 adults and not for the kids. However at the end of the day when we made payment we were told by the lady at the desk/till (Mishka was not around) that we will have to pay for 9 (including the kids who barely ate anything at all). But this was very quickly and painlessly resolved once the gentleman who seemed to be in charge of the high tea proceedings for that day was called (I did not catch his name). No fuss at all.

Lovely Restaurant & Garden. We loved our table, setting & food was exceptional. Service levels seemed a bit wanting... When paying the bill, the hand held Card reader was not connecting & the waiter started wavering it around the restaurant near a window. Not what you would expect from a 5 ⭐️ Restaraunt The Conservatory.

Service was good. We loved the cheese soufle and my wife enjoyed her lentil Babotie. I found the lamb shank rather overpriced for what it was. It was also quite fatty, and not much meat to start with. Dessert was tasty.

Breakfast hot options were served almost cold on 2 days, service poor - no one seemed to know who was to take the wine order at dinner - staff seemed muddled and untrained

Lovely lunch, good service. I felt that the menu had insufficient options for specific dietary requirements - eg all desserts had dairy in them. Not many vegetarian or vegan options and this is a significant food trend.
