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.
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.
