Owner's description

With its enviable rooftop position and polished aesthetic, FYN is the realisation of a decades-long dream; Peter Tempelhoff’s answer to gourmands’ insatiable search for the epitome of culinary je ne sais quoi. But people will certainly want to define it. Fine dining aficionados who think they’ve seen it all may think again after visiting this landmark Cape Town establishment.

    We feel robbed. R520 for 4 glasses of pink bubbly that we sent back as it was the worst drink we ever tasted. R300 extra because they offered my friend Wagyu beef instead of the springbok. She couldn’t eat it as it was tasteless. Most of the courses were underwhelming and some were even not edible. Feels like they are trying too hard to make unusual food combinations - many just don’t work. Service disappointing with our waiter had an attitude from the minute we sat until we left making us feel so uncomfortable. A waste of money. They will never see us again!!!
    Fyn's glorious location in one of Cape Town's nicest precincts makes it a special restaurant. Being a top-tier fine-dining restaurant, one expects something great, and this is what we got the first 3 times we dined there. However, our last experience was somewhat underwhelming and quite a disappointment for what one would expect. We were three guests, all had a different menu and, the buckwheat risotto excluded, none of the dishes were outstanding. In particular, the watermelon sashimi, the springbok, and the kingklip were not worth making any fuss about. What was particularly disappointing was the substandard service including the fact that the first wine we ordered was not available, which is a cardinal sin in any restaurant, especially a top-tier establishment such as Fyn.
    The anxiety levels in this restaurant makes it extremely unpleasant- everyone is stressed to a level one feels it while eating. Passive aggressive ladies working there with an ice cold matrodee. This restaurant needs some humility some kindness warmth and some friendly faces. Asked who the main chef was to thank him and the lady working there dissed us. They have a well oiled machine serving military style food at the exact right time - with no soul no heart and no connection to the clients. Walked out of tonight’s dinner with an ulcer. Nobody seems happy working there. We told them its our 23rd wedding anniversary and nobody even bothered saying congratulations- they want you to sit - eat and leave! Will Never go back again
    The new king of Cape Town, successfully dethroned the old guard in Constantia. Rise and applaud is all I can say for the polished theater and experience.
    Well the price is over the top more expensive than anywhere else we have been in Cape Town. So expectations are high. Alas very disappointing. All sizzle and no substance. It starts well with canapés which are delicious. Bread with bone marrow coal. Give me a break. Just made my bread black and oiley. On the Kaiseki tray the game fish was tasteless but redeemed with the perlemoen. And then it’s downhill from there. Duck breast nothing special and I could not eat the octopus rice. Distasteful flavour. Final course of springbok. It’s okay. Nothing to write home about. And fluffy salty pap. Please don’t destroy Africa’s staple food! Desert is okay but didn’t eat much which means it’s not delicious. My partner says the wine choice is poor. And I have a terrible stomach ache. Can I have my money back please .And to add insult to injury they charge for coffee. It’s not included in the R1000 per person charge. One great thing. ... the service is good. Earnest, keen and pleasant wait staff. Cape Town you have far superior restaurants than this, at quarter the price. 3/10
