Thoroughly enjoyed a meal at Pastis last night, I had a couscous salad, one companion the surf and turf and the other a lamb burger. My salad was tasty and filling, the calamari in the surf and turf a little tough and the burger very tasty. The craft beers were also enjoyed. There was live music which added to the... More

We hadn't been to Pastis for a while as the food and service had taken a bit of a dip. We went back on Christmas Eve and enjoyed a fabulous meal. The food was excellent and great vale for money. The service was good too.

Came here at 8pm. Place was nearly full. Ordered first drinks. Two of the drinks came relatively fast – the others – I don’t remember, when. Placed the order. After about 45 minutes (so still OK?) the starters came. However the waiter (or shall I call him a “Foodrunner”?) could not tell us, what he brought – so we figured... More

I enjoy eating here, there is a substantial menu a great wine list and a full bar. Tables inside and outside. My favourite winter seat is the couch at the fireplace in the bar. Live music weekend afternoons and evenings.

We stopped by on New Year's Day for brunch; the eggs Benedict being served to others looked good but I opted for eggs florentine instead as i haven't had this for some time. Service was polite and friendly; the order was taken efficiently and our food served soon afterwards. We enjoyed a pleasant mid-morning meal in relaxed surroundings. Recommended for... More

The only thing going for this place is the location. The food is geared for pub style grub and certainly not for the family. Suited for the "chain smoking half glass of wine clientle" this is not a place I would recommend for the family. While I ordered the duck the rest of the family ordered chicken, line fish and...

We had heard so much positiv about the Pastis that we had been looking forward to go there. The service was slow a d not very friendly. We just had salads for lunch on a very hot day....Cesar salad with chicken and salad with calamari. We have never been eating worse in South Africa. The other places in High Constantia... More

Pastis is often overlooked as it is tucked away in the far corner at the High Constantia centre. However, it is away from the car park and has a distinct country air to it. The food is always excellent. A bonus is their half priced breakfasts and a special Monday menu for seniors.

Always a favourite of mine so I chose to invite some colleagues here at the end of the year . Friendly, helpful over the booking. A shady cool place to sit outdoors on a hot day. The waitress was excellent and the manager very nice. The bill was very reasonable. We ate salads mainly as a main as it was... More
