Local and historical ingredients telling stories. Each plate a question, an idea, an experience. Greenhouse at The Cellars-Hohenort: modern South African cooking.
Cape Town’s first Relais & Chateaux Grand Chef Peter Tempelhoff and his talented team create exciting menus using fresh local produce inspired by the diverse cultures of South Africa. The Greenhouse Restaurant is situated in the fertile Constantia Valley in Cape Town.
We live in a complex, joyful, and beautiful country; a country where your ideas and preconceptions change the longer you look at them. Peter Tempelhoff, Ashley Moss and their team look long and hard at what we eat, and where it’s from. They look to the sea and the garden, to the fields and orchards; they open old cellars and pantries to find ingredients that have meaning.
We invite you into our dining room to take part in a modern, South African dining experience. An experience that’s as complex, joyful and beautiful as the country we live in.
Peter & Ash
Peter Tempelhoff, Executive Chef and Ashley Moss, head Chef lead the team at the Greenhouse.
Peter's philosophy to food preparation proudly boasts that "If it is not the best it can be, it doesn't belong on the menu!" This is the attitude that entrenches Peter’s reputation and earned him several awards and accolades.
The six restaurants of the Liz McGrath's Collection fall under Peter’s auspices be it the sophisticated gastronomic Greenhouse, or the earthy Seafood restaurant at The Marine, the gold standard set simply is perfection.
Peter's style has been influenced by culinary masters like Marco Pierre-White, Giorgio Locatelli, Joel Robuchon, Anne-Sophie Pic, and Daniel Humm. The Greenhouse is the flagship restaurant where contemporary cuisine blends with rich South African ingredients and flavours. The Greenhouse is regarded as one of the leading restaurants in South Africa and is consciously aware of ecological concerns without compromising on dining taste and enjoyment creating exciting dishes sometimes from less glamorous fish and seafood unique to The Greenhouse and The Collection by Liz McGrath.
