Owner's description

Nestled in the fertile Constantia Valley lies a 300-year old wine estate, Groot Constantia and on it, Simon’s Restaurant, where we celebrate the riches of the Cape winelands by transforming the freshest ingredients into memorable meals.

Revel in the Cape Town summer by dining al fresco on our terrace with panoramic views of the Groot Constantia vineyards. Savour the wines of the valley or enjoy our wide selection of craft beers. As the weather turns, join us inside where we like to light a giant fire on chilly days.

Less than 20 minutes from Cape Town city centre. Less than 15 minutes from Hout Bay and only 12 minutes from Newlands, Simon’s is the perfect winelands dining experience.

    My partner and I always got to Simons as a treat. The restaurant has a inside and outside area that flows seamlessly. The outside area that overlooks the vineyards is beautiful in Summer. They have an amazing fillet steak that is always cooked perfectly. They have a large selection of amazing local wines. We recommend their crème brûlée which is the best I have ever had.
    Had lunch at Simons, the food was amazing! I had their burger with bacon and Cheese, not only did it look great it tasted even better. The Chef cooked the pattie to a perfect medium while the cheddar cheese was melted on top. My wifes prawns also looked fresh and she said they were really good. The service was great, our waiter kept our glasses full and brought our food from the kitchen without us having to wait to long. We can't wait to go back!!

    I dined with a group of friends last week and can safely say that I will never return!

    I ordered the tuna Niçoise salad. Luckily I ordered the dressing on the side because it came with honey mustard dressing. It was not ideal for this salad and was not a tuna Niçoise dressing. I asked our waitress for lemon and olive oil instead. When I eventually got my lemon juice it was from a bottle.
    Our waitress did not seem to think this was an issue!

    My friends all felt that their meals were very average and the quality of ingredients not great! Our waitress was terrible and made no effort to engage with our table. She added bacon to my friend's meal which was an addition at an extra cost and when questioned she said it came with bacon.

    I did not want to create a scene as we were with people so I did not speak to the manager. I just wanted to leave and never return.

    Yesterday we went to Simons for a belated Valentines Day lunch. We started off with 6 oysters and a glass of champagne each. The champagne was warm and my champagne glass was chipped at the base. The first oyster tasted good but the rest werent nice at all. We had prawns for our mains, and they were nice and firm, but why is it served with a savoury rice and not a plain basmati rice so that you dont have conflicting tastes. My husband didnt enjoy them at all. Maybe were not choosing the right things to eat. Second time weve eaten here and the second time weve been disappointed.
