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.
I had booked a high tea for a belated mother's day celebration, on the afternoon of Sun 20 May. Conservatory called on Friday to confirm: I confirmed. On Sunday morning while we were at church they called again to confirm; obviously we did not answer. When we checked again, they had sent an SMS saying we had lost our reservation due to our unavailability to take the Sunday call. Really disappointing service! Only restaurant in Cape Town not to be satisfied with one confirmation call and to need a second hours before, just to make doubly sure. Next year we'll pick another venue!
Excellent afternoon enjoying the Wedding... what a spread and great venue. Attention to detail and service was top drawer... better than being there
I booked for high tea and requested a Diabectic plate which was confirmed in writing that the kitchen could accommodate me, however when I arrived, nothing was done. After showing my request in writing, the staff apologized and quickly made a plan, thank you
Great food and value for money! Thank you for all your special effort and attention to detail!
Fantastic evening with amazing food
We had a lovely High Tea. Thank you!
A lovely atmosphere and fantastic service!
Absolutely delicious, from Amuse bouche to Starter, Main dish and desert. The restaurant is very beautiful and the food beyond expectations. We definately come back
This pick was perfect as we enjoyed the food served. Chef was on point and the food was very freshly prepared which is always great to have fresh food. The Staff was very cool and helped us with no problems whatsoever. Apart from the little mild noise from the Wedding which booked same night all was enjoyable and also was nice to experience others wedding at a glance. Thanks for hosting us.
We came for restaurant week so it was really good value for money. I was just a little surprised/disappointed that it wasn't quite what I expected. I was expecting an amuse Bouche (Unless this was the bread which is not the usual) and Petit Fours after dinner - which we didn't receive. I was also unimpressed with the portion size of the pork belly which was the same size as the starter portion. The waiter was attentive but forgot about our dessert and had to be reminded.
Food and service was great as it always is. We were very dissapointed with the portion of the one pork belly main though. Compared to the other 2 main dishes ordered it was very sadly small but was tasty.
Excellent staff --beautiful venue..great food.I am really impressed @ how much care was taken to make sure parents were comfortable,given their frailty.
A pleasure to be back with you
We came in on the Autumn Restaurant festival special and the staff made sure to treat us "less special" . The waiter never topped up our drinks once, that only by the end of the evening we realised we had 3/4 of bottle of wine left we didn't have time to finish! Waiters didn't really come to check up on us either and we were disappointed to see no chocolate option of dessert on the menu.
Absolutely fabulous lunch at the Conservatory - the cheese souffle is undoubtedly the best starter I have ever eaten. The staff were flawless and the garden exquisite. My visiting foodie aunt felt that she had had a very rare and unique treat.
Food was great but the service was extremely slow.
We had a very pleasant Easter Sunday lunch. Overall the service was good and general experience great. Only complaint was that the lamb course served was dry and almost unpleasant - did not expect that from a restaurant that normally serves such a high standard of food.
Afternoon, We inquired re a booking by email. We received a detail reply back, I.E be on time, cannot guarantee seating preference, any other dietary requirements. I replied requesting gluten free. My sister Cheryl Marock arrived early about 14h45. She advised when asked if we have booked, Yes under Marock (Ref: BRWGT7F). Wendy and Dave Marock arrived on time and we were seated by 15h02. We were asked have you booked, Yes I replied under Marock. After about 5 minutes we were asked again have you booked, Yes we replied under Marock. Eventually we were asked what tea we would like. Tea was served, tea was finished no eats in sight. At 15h47 we queried were are our eats? We were told been very busy, I will go crack the whip.For the record the eating area had empty tables. At 1601 we received our eats now we had no tea. What is the point of booking and requesting one serving of gluten free when there is no communication between your email coordinator and waiters and the kitchen. The gluten free tea eats were cobbled together, poor show not worth the travel time and effort as we came from Somerset West. My sister has been with the Hotel industry for 37 years, she is often asked by guests where should we go and what do you recommend. The email trail is email sent, email acknowledged, another email sent requesting gluten free and than a email from Hohenort asking click here to confirm. We did what you requested, we confirmed the booking, we confirmed one plate gluten free, we arrived on time. Hohenort provided confusion, poor service and no attempt to smooth over by example, apologies for the delay here is some extra tea or a glass of wine. We wont be back. Dave Marock 0825511305
a beautiful place to eat, desserts are amazing. there are 2 restaurant relais chateau on this place and one the green house don't allowed kids, that's a very bad point.
Marvellous menu, seamless service, charming atmosphere, wonderful company. No better way to celebrate an 80th birthday.
Since 25 years we are enjoying this wonderful place with its highly professional service and fantastic food. Unfortunately, our visit last Saturday was not as good as usual. The staff was busy to prepare a function next door and no attention was paid to the guests. Bread was forgotten and arrived upon our request after the plates of the starters were cleared. Water and wine we not topped up, we had to help ourselves. The quality of the food was unusually bad. The Cob, linefish of the day, was overcooked and dry. Same problem with the Tuna main course. We had the impression, that the kitches was also very busy doung other things. Overall impression: Not worth the money. Sorry, but we know that you can do much better!
Lovely setting and an overall wonderful evening.
An absolutely fantastic experience. We really enjoyed it.
I was sharing a special day with a special friend and my entire experience was completely perfect. Thank you so much. I still feel energised days later. ♡
Very high quality food
