Our U3A photogroup went there for our Xmas brunch (like every year) and it is always worth a visit. There weren't many people and the staff had time to give us great service. I would recommend the Eggs Benedict, but some of our group raved about the Health breakfast. Don't forget about the setting and the view!

Such a pleasant day, nice cool shade from the hot sun. Food was amazing, simple but tasty and the kids always have fun here. Staff were so accommodating and friendly.

I stopped in here based on my hotels desk clerk's recommendation. What a great idea. You can see all of Cape Town as you enjoy an afternoon lunch or break. The chicken tika wrap was pretty close to perfect and the service was perfect. If you happen to be at that end of town, say after visiting the gardens, do... More

I have been to Cape Town before but never had the opportunity to visit the Rhodes Memorial. We decided to have lunch at the Restaurant and Tea Garden as we had heard about the spectacular views and the good choices of food. We spent some time at the memorial proper before settling at the restaurant for a meal and some... More

Really well worth the visit, brilliant ambience, a stone house nestled amongst the trees, with a amazing view. A wonderful place to have breakfast.

We were visiting the memorial and taking pictures when we decided to have lunch at the tea rooms. It looked so inviting and the setting was beautiful. The menu was impressive and so was the very friendly service. I ordered a Kappse platter. I didn't know what to expect but when it arrived it would have easily fed 3 people.... More

We visited this place with friends and was a bit disappointed, the service was really bad. We had to fetch the waiter a few times after waiting and waiting for service. The food was average, not truly special but it tasted well enough. If you want a quick bite to eat it is a good place to eat, but if... More
