Owners description

Walking into Henri’s, you’ll be greeted by the owner, Pierre Vosloo, and his staff, who will treat you like guests in their own home. Henri’s is conveniently situated on Somerset West Main Road in a heritage house that has been renovated into a spacious contemporary restaurant. The top floor has been renovated and can be used for private functions.They are well known for their aged grass-fed beef as well as the freshest local seafood.

The menu can be described as comfort food with a modern global influence. Henri’s offers a light lunch menu during the day and also has a kiddies menu. There is a wood fired oven, where they bake great tasting thin-based pizza. Henri’s offer their patrons a complimentary focaccia per table.

You can also enjoy a drink on their patio or at their stylish bar. Henri’s offer a wide selection of craft and imported beers. The wine list is quite substantial and offers a variety of wine by the glass, but patrons are welcome to bring their own wine, as Henri’s doesn’t charge corkage.

Once you have discovered Henri’s Restaurant & Pub you will be back (and back again)! Henri’s is open Monday to Saturday from 12noon till late.

  • After a very memorable birthday of my own, I wanted to treat my fiance for his birthday and make it extra special. I decided on Henris, but asked for extra treatment. I selected a set menu of my own (from pre-drinks to coffee afterwards). Chez went all the way and helped me to make the evening memorable. She was a star, from serving us personally at the bar and telling us about the specialities for the evening herself. The rest of the evening went fluently with great service and perfectly timed orders.
    The evenings highlight was when a divine little birthday cake was presented to the birthday boy, with his name and all beautifully presented.

    Chez, thank you thank thank you for making the evening so special and compliments to the chef for very good food.

  • My wife and I have been frequenting Henris for about the last 6 months, once and sometimes even twice a month. We love the vibe and especially the food. The chefs really know what they are doing. My mouth starts watering when I think about the springbok shank, the spring rolls and the lovely desserts. I highly recommend this restaurant for its great service, attention to detail and most importantly its amazing food.

  • We had three different steaks last night and all were equally well prepared and tasty. The best we had for a long time as my guests from Windhoek confirmed. Will be back for more, as the service was outstanding too.

  • To All at HenrisA quick note of thanks for looking after us all so well last night. Henri’s was the perfect place to spend some of the short time available with my sister before she returns back to the USA.We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The pork belly with complimentary pineapple chutney was delicious, as well as the not-overpowering asparagus soup! Your Risotto was just full of exciting flavours and both Kingklip & Cob were cooked perfectly with balanced, delicate sauces. Lamb shank is normally one of my favourite dishes so the springbok knuckle was a lovely opportunity to try some slow roasted venison too (not sure if it is normally slow roasted, braised, or a bit of both?). I really wish you both every success with your restaurant & family. You both make the perfect team! - a prerequisite when balancing family & a demanding environment.We’ll certainly be back to sample more of the exciting menu!

  • Arguably one of the best recommendations I ever got about a restaurant. An employee of Lourensford Wine Estate said we had to try Henri’s after we had a bad experience at another restaurant just outside of Somerset West. From the moment we entered the restaurant till the moment we left was just stunning. The waiter know the menu of by heart and he made a very good wine recommendation to go with the meal. I believe it was actually a Lourenford wine. The food was very good and I can honestly say this was one of the best meals we had in long time at a restaurant. The owner were also there to make sure everybody is happy and enjoying themselves. Thank you for a really amazing evening/experience, you will see us again and again. P.S. Ricky your barman is a real gem.

  • I had the privilege to enjoy an evening of fine dining and an amazing ambiance. The succulent lamb shank literally fell of the bone and the suggested wine with it complemented the taste. The service was even better and all contributed to a stunning evening.

  • Visited Henris more than a couple of times since they opened and all I can say is, excellent The food/menu is out of this world. Ask for the chefs special. The service is very good with well trained, friendly and very efficient staff. The winelist is execellent with a good variety and balance. Best spot to sit is in front of the fire place. There is something for everybody and a restaurant I can highly recommend. One of the best in the Western Cape and one to look out for in the future.

  • Fantastic restaurant, great food and service. Our food was late but the manager/owner explained why and made up for the delay by offering us drinks. We were a table of 5 and all enjoyed a great meal. I highly recommend this restaurant.
