On Easter Saturday, three of us arrived at Roots, hungry and full of anticipation - so much so that we arrived half an hour prior to our booking! We announced our arrival and asked if we could sit outside and have a pre-drink. By the time we were called to our table (25min later), only one of us had received... More

Nice environment - awesome food. Flies were absolutely annoying... Service at some times a bit slow - though I think it's worth a visit. Food is really good and very nicely presented.

An idealic restaurant for Gourmet food. Beautiful menu and good service. Cannot recommend enough if you like gourmet food, trying new wines and relaxed atmosphere. If you like wine take the dégustation menu with a different glass matched to each course. The sommelier knows very well the wines and introduces each one. A wonderful way to spend a romantic evening.

Mbongi was a server for the evening - he was... More

My girfriend and I decided to pay a visit to Roots on Human Rights Day. It was not planned but a spur of the moment thing. On arrival we were told that we should have made a reservation. I spoke to the young lady at reception who promptly accommodated us. We were shown to a beautiful rest area overlooking the... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. Beautiful setting, albeit a bit of a drive. Very peaceful. Our table was on the veranda overlooking a pond. Decor is tasteful and not overpowering, ideally suited to the location. We had the set 4 course luncheon menu and were extremely impressed by the quality of the food.... More

The ambiance of the restaurant and the superior service were my lasting impressions of Roots restaurant. We enjoyed our special Constantia Glen wine dinner with a group of friends and adult children. The welcome drink on the outdoor patio was so relaxing at sunset, and I would love to go back during the day the next time we're in the... More

A delectable 6 course Sunday lunch in a setting that forces you to relax and take in the gorgeous scenery. Wine pairing available with a very animated, knowledgeable sommelier. Good service. 3 hours of pure dining pleasure.
