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 booked. we waited to be seated, the party at the back of the restaurant was incredibly loud.As a vegetarian the menu is limited ( i am sure you are aware there is a Vegan trend )The mozzarella salad was not available and the grain salad then arrived ...pretty tasteless. The side portion of leeks were undercooked , the hazelnuts (what could be found) had not been toasted and so another dish arrived ,leaving me feeling underwhelmed.This arrived half way through my salad. The Eaton Mess had one sliced cherry and 2 strawberries...leaving the dish very sweet with very little relief. We sent back a lot of food, no-one came to check why. You have an incredible setting, staff wanting to please..not sure where the management was.
Beautiful, peaceful space. Delicious food. ❤️
Beautiful space, delightful service with scrumptious food.
We throughly enjoyed the high tea set outside in the garden with exquisite views. However, these are the aspects that need work: 1. Staff need to check on their guest even when we having a high tea because drinks need to be replenished and can't be done once every hour. We spoke to about 5 different waitors on the day asking whem drink orders were coming. 2. None of the staff wanted to move the umbrellas around and we were caught in the sun (scorching😔) 3. The lady who initially helped was nowhere to be found and when questioning one of the other waitors he said they just had a change over of staff and no one received hand-overs in terms of which tables they were needing to service. 4. Lastly, when asking staff to replenish on kebabs they brought it through without saying they charge extra for every additional high item ordered and I was only made aware of this when it was time to pay my bill.
Really nice variety of sweet things. Would have liked a little bit more savoury like beef skewers, quiches. The sandwiches become stale quite quickly outside. Very well presented.
Mertia/Mercia was a really good host! She did her job very well. We observed her with the other customers as well and she is kind and very friendly. Really a bonus to be served by her!
We had an absolutely wonderful time. Precious was our waitress and really attentive. The food was seriously delicious!!! Would highly recommend this venue.
Beautiful setting and great service. The restaurant was able to accommodate our special requests. Enjoyed every minute. Thank you.
Wonderful value for money.
It always a special pleasure to dine in the Conservatory. The Cellars is a magical place from the moment one enters the estate, it never disappoints, the magic never fades.
I couldn’t have chosen a better place to celebrate my friend’s birthday. Food was great, wonderful atmosphere and cannot praise the staff enough for their service. A wonderful evening
I expected the low carb high tea, as advertised. However, the bottom tier was filled with square! sandwiches. Rather offer small (like your sweets) savoury scones? The peppadum with cold meat was horrendous. I loved all the sweats. They were perfect, thank you.
High tea was much fun but needed more savouries. Bread too thick and filling too thin in sandwiches I could hardly find the cucumber or salmon (trout?) Little cakes excellent as was the range of exotic teas. Good presentation and FoH staff helpful and courteous But the hotel is so lovingly maintained and white garden a real joy. Thank you for a memorable event.
All enquiries prior to booking were timeously and professionally answered. Basket options and special dietary requirements were met. The food was delicious. Service on the day was excellent. The garden was really beautiful. Overall the whole experience was very good. I would recommend it and will probably be back.
The food was expertly prepared and presented. The gardens completed the atmosphere.The service was also excellent. We especially appreciated the birthday gift. It was the cherry on top.
We had a fantastic evening - delicious food, great service and a beautiful venue. Thank you
Great to be back after Lockdown. Almost forgot what we have been missing. Perfect dining experience. Thanks for maintaining and indeed improving standards and the experience despite the tough times your industry has been through. Appreciate the large choice of Banting Low-Carb menu options.
This was my second visit and definitely not the last!! On both occassions my guests were highly impressed with my choice of restaurant. xxx
The service was excellent. The food exquisite. And the view beautiful. Thank you all for making the bridal shower special.
We enjoyed our visit. The food, service and ambiance was excellent.
What a beautiful atmosphere to celebrate my Nanna's 90 th Birthday. Thank you for your friendly hospitality. The food was outstanding. Delicious, will definitely be back for more.
The service, ambience and food was so worth an early morning birthday celebration! Will be visiting more regularly.
Food has not a good quality, tuna not eatable, pasta without taste and flavour, cheese sauce was only warmed cream without a taste, beef had a good quality but the dish was without any sauce and flavour, vegetables totally raw, waiting time more than 30 min for pre-dinner drinks & food, Service not really helpfull. First bill with all dishes on it, afterwards without the starter. Very bad experience. Far away from 5 star service and food.
Absolutely perfect evening. The meal was delicious, the service was warm and efficient and the setting was lovely. What was really great was that the atmosphere was not stiff and formal, even though the quality of the meal was stellar. We can't wait to return.
Great evening was had. A very surprising and beautiful view from our table. Service from Prince, Michael and the other barman (apologies cannot remember his name) was world class. Highly recommend the restaurant.
