I always enjoy the food that La Pineta serves up whether I am going for a weekend lunch with the family or an evening meal with my wife. The starters on offer are sublime and the Prawn with mango salsa is my favorite dish in the western cape. The deck outside is perfect for some al fresco dining and there... More

This was my first visit to La Pineta, we -group of 11- sat next to the fireplace. The service and wine was great, our food order arrived timely and together. We ordered across the menu. By looking at the other reviews I assume La Pineta had a 'bad night' and the careless presentation we experienced and consequently totally overpriced meals... More

The bill is worth paying for when you get delicious food and good wine. I had the glorious Beef Carpaccio for starter, mouth watering Oxtail for main and the cherry on top was the Irish Coffee for dessert. I will most definitely be back soon.

This, being our third visit to La Pineta, was extremely disappointing. Prices had rocketed through the ceiling while service was very slow. Prices. Even though their menu prices as per their website were still reasonable, their actual prices were unbelievably high. For example their lamb shank is probably the most expensive in Cape Town - higher than Pigalles and Karibu's,... More

Had an amazing Sunday lunch with the family. The scenery is stunning, service is friendly and the atmosphere is great. And don't get me started on the food. Everything we tried was perfection (I like the oxtail in particular). However, bear in mind that there are prices to match the high quality. As for the negatives, I would have liked... More

What an amazing restaurant. From the time we walked in the staff where so welcoming there was a sense of order between everyone and the restaurant was busy. Our waiter Mr Harley (nickname - because he owns a Harley) was on point with wine choice, food choice, table settings and we changed our order 3 times, he was friendly and... More

For a casual steak or a good pizza with a bottle of local wine La Pineta is always a good choice and you can't beat the sunset over the Tafelberg
