Cellars-Hohenort Country House Hotel offers the following dining options: The Conservatory is the main restaurant on the property and is located in the Cellars building. The stylish restaurant has been built around a 300-year old oak tree, offering stunning garden views no matter where you sit - inside or out. Using local produce, the Head Chef creates both classic and contemporary dishes.

The Greenhouse offers conceptual cuisine that is inspired by the hotel's Grand Chef who blends classic dishes with his own imagination. The friendly service is always attentive and unassuming, and the sommelier will happily recommend something from the extensive cellar to complement your meal. The Greenhouse was voted as one of the Top 10 Restaurants for 2009 in the Prudential Eat Out Restaurant Awards.

The Cape Malay Restaurant offers authentic local food from Cape Town's historic Malay community. Spicy, rustic colours create a pleasant Eastern ambience and hot towels suffused with rose water will encourage you to relax and eat with your fingers. The wine list has been chosen specifically to complement the spicy foods on offer and include a good spread of local and imported wines.

Before you dine, be sure to enjoy a drink at the stylish Martini Bar, home to apparently the world's largest selection of martinis.

Traveller Reviews

  • Both restaurants were excellent. Indeed the Greenhouse is just exceptional, one of the best meal we ever had. Even the Conservatory was excellent (but service less efficient). I was not even willing to try this last one because I was not convinced by the quality of Martini bar and breakfast, but finally it was a very good and positive surprise for the dinner. Regarding activities in Cape Town, a picnic at Kirstenbosch is always a must (especially when it is so close from the hotel) and we also discovered the neighbourhoods market in Woodstock which was great.

  • The only regret was that we had such a short time there! A wonderful country house style hotel with impeccable service. We had a great suite of rooms. The afternoon tea was one of the best we have ever had and our tasting menu in the Green House world class.
