First night in Cape Town and went to Simons restaurant, what a great start to a great holiday. The setting was beautiful and the food was delicious as of course was the wine. We had the line fish which was king clip - totally delicious, along with their Groot Constantia Merlot - very good. Service was excellent and friendly. would... More

Love very light lunch. One small problem - I had the salad with blackberries and received dried cranberries instead. Salad was still good but would have preferred some acknowledgement of a lack of an ingredient.

I recently contacted Simons to host my moms 60th birthday - i wanted to pull out all the stops...simply cause moms deserve it! Dawn at Simons got back to me immediately and made the whole planning process for this evening an absolute pleasure. We got our own private space and my every request was accommodated with no hassle. They do... More

My husband and I went to Cape Town to visit two old friends from decades earlier. We took them to lunch at Simon's Restaurant in Constantia. The lamb neck was a big hit, as was the Creme Brûlée. We had some drinks and some wine. The menu is varied for even the most particular taste. It's not really suited to... More

My boyfriend surprised me to a birthday picnic. The service was a little slow but, the staff were friendly and professional. We decided not to sit at a table but rather sit on the grass like a real picnic :) The view was great, the food was delicious and I really had a wonderful time. I'd recommend doing the picnic...

This is a beautiful restaurant that is tucked away in the vineyards of Groot Constantia. You wouldn't know it was there if you had not been told about it (or found it online). The restaurant is lovely, though the range of food that is offered is not particularly extensive. Three of us had their signature burger, which was the only... More

We decided to head out to Simon's this past Sunday with the aim of doing a wine tasting before lunch. That way we could have water with lunch and be OK to drive after. This was great as the wine tasting was fantastic. Groot Constantia makes some lovely wines. Onto lunch... Simon's caters for everyone; those wanting a family meal... More

We had a party of 23 people so I expected something to go wrong but I was pleasantly surprised. The venue is beautiful, set among the vineyards and under a beautiful willow tree, the food was great and the staff were so attentive, helpful and friendly, everything went off smoothly. We were allowed to bring in cupcakes and balloons and... More

Usually a reliable venue for out of town clients. Good seating with options for bigger tables. Fantastic setting. Food was a little disappointing on this trip. Well executed but lacking some zing. Wine list is fair with a good choice and price range. Service was friendly but a little slow

A beautiful drive with 70s classic Mercedes' ended in a relaxed lunch at Simon's. The food is very good, pasta and calamari good, with the Burger the dish to go for. Service was good, just check the weather before going, the wind can get bad 😳
