We were recommended this place as we just wanted a quick easy bite to eat. The waiter was very friendly and the food that we had was incredibly yummy, succulent steaks with tasty acccompaniments. We didn't get a chance to go back again during our holiday but wouldn't hesitate to recommend this bistro.

We headed to the Brasserie after deciding last minute to head out in search of a dinner on Valentine's...with luck they had space! The steak was quite literally the best prepared steak I have had whilst living in CT for the passed 5 years! Unpretentious and nice setting. Waiter was very well prepared and knew the menu well. Not a... More

We had dinner here 5 times over our 3 week stay in Constantia. A real good atmosphere and it is a bit like a good English pub. The only place we found with good beer(as opposed to lager) friendly staff & excellent Manager. The steaks are superb! And great value. No wonder we liked it!

The Brasserie isn't the most sophisticated restaurant but we had really good fish and fillet steak, nicely served and good value. Well worth going to.

The Brasserie is always crowded - for a good reason. The food is consistently good. The atmosphere is pleasant and the staff is attentive. Thumbs up.

We had a truly wonderful meal at Brasserie - the food was incredible. We had an incredible kingclip, great to have such a good meal in this part of the Southern Suburbs where we have found a lack of original food in general. We shall be recommending Brasseries to all of our friends and neighbours at Steenberg!

I've eaten at The Brasserie many times and I cannot recommend it enough. From the moment you walk in, you're greeted with friendly waiting staff, romantic lighting and music accompanied by fantastic flavours and smells from the impeccably run kitchen. The restaurant boasts an intimate and cosy affair inside and a whimsical outdoor patio with ivy clad walls and romantic... More

Constantia and the Cape Winelands is packed with top class restaurants but all need to be booked long in advance in the season.The Brasserie at Tokai is open 7 days a week,the food is good and they provide very good value for money and you can almost always get a table.

Ordered the confit chicken (which I have had several times before) and while it was very tasty, this time I felt ripped off. Three small chicken legs for R128, just not acceptable? On pointing this out, I was told that the chef indicated they have had to cut back on the more expensive chicken cuts as the cost of the... More

Excellent excellent excellent. Warm, friendly, & intimate atmosphere. Waiters very friendly & efficient, always eager to please - our waiter's name was Fred. Manager checks on tables too.
