Perennial Favourites, Served In A Breathtaking Setting

Situated in the glorious Constantia valley in Cape Town, alongside the historic Cellars building at the Cellars-Hohenhort, The Conservatory is Cape Town’s premier stylish Restaurant. Set around a giant 300-year-old oak tree, The Conservatory is at once an idyllic dining venue.

Guests may choose from three special locations – the main dining section, with stunning views of our historical garden with its ancient Camphor trees; the ‘breakfast room’; and the terrace overlooking the garden.

Head Chef Paul Nash, together with his talented team has created a classic menu with a focus on firm favourites, including some of Liz McGrath’s personal recipes.

From Cape Malay rubbed line fish, Mushroom & lentil bobotie, Springbok on the braai, the menu has something for everyone, with Paul adding a special lightness to dishes such as her signature Boland Cheese Souffle with Cheesy Gin Sauce.

Working in perfect harmony with the natural setting, The Conservatory incorporates fresh produce picked from our very own gardens whenever possible, including local fynbos.

Afternoon Tea is of course another favourite, and The Conservatory is the perfect place to enjoy our special Cellar’s Classic High Tea with friends and loved ones.

The Cellars-Hohenort’s wonderfully light and airy Conservatory welcomes you with an uncomplicated yet perfectly executed menu, courtesy of Head Chef Paul Nash. Paul climbed the ranks of some of South Africa’s and Germany’s finest culinary establishments, including The Collection’s The Marine and The Plettenberg, and Michelin-starred Schloß Eberstein, before joining The Conservatory as Head Chef.

These days he serves firm favourites, including some of Liz McGrath’s personal recipes, in the most idyllic garden setting – with many ingredients freshly picked mere metres away. Served in the main dining section; the breakfast room; or on the terrace overlooking the garden,

Paul’s creations show his passion and respect for food, which, as he explains “equals a passion and respect for life.”
