Owner's description

Frequented by people that you would want to know, the stately Leinster Hall has been brilliantly reimagined and repurposed as The Stack: With an opulent public bar, garden terrace and brasserie downstairs and a unique private members' club upstairs, it's the perfect place to get your swagger on.

The idea of hotelier Nigel Pace and his designer wife, Sarah Ord, this one of a kind establishment has made the Kloof Street hood even cooler. Between them, they have over 25 years of experience making people feel at home.

    The Stack is a vibey bistro serving classic French fare, and delicious cocktails. The interior, with its emerald green leather couches and plush violet seats, will definitely land up on your Instagram story! We started with some oysters and chicken liver parfait, both of which were excellent. For mains we had the steak frites which was cooked perfectly and came with a wondeful tangy bearnaise sauce, and the pork belly which had a good combination of apple and mustard flavours but was perhaps a bit dry.
    We had a most wonderful birthday lunch at the Stack on Saturday 18 November. The food was thoroughly enjoyed by all eleven of us, including the two grandkids, and the service was excellent. My steak was perfect and the food presentation was most attractive. The atmosphere and the way the staff looked after our gathering made it into a perfect celebration day.
    What a gem!!!! Service was on point; fast, efficient and friendly. The atmosphere was just so amazing! Tranquil and elegant. I was immediately sold with the quality of the cocktails!!! Now... The food... I am a huge fan of fine dining and not only did they deliver, they exceeded expectations with great taste and decent quantities. The quality was exquisite! I would definitely go back, for both the food and the cocktails! Worthy of many returns!!!!
    Brilliantly curated interior style in a rarefied atmosphere! Superb service and a menu leaning to comfort food, bistro classics, exactly what we needed!
    Beautiful beautiful interior and a wonderful welcome by the hostess. Enjoyed a quick drink at the bar, and then went on to dinner. We had the steak tartare to start. As a confirmed carnivore Ive been searching for a replacement to the offering of Den Anker- which used to have the best steak tartare in Cape Town until they changed chefs and stopped hand chopping it... well I have found it. Absolutely sublime! UNFORTUNATELY, it overshadowed the rest of the meal. Plat du jour was roast chicken which was finished by deep frying with crumbs and rendered the dish dry and 'kfc' like. The second main was the duck, which I had great expectations for but they fell short- the dish just lacked flavour- or maybe the steak tartare had just left me expecting something else. So we'll definitely be back. For a double up portion of ST as a main! Great service, lighting in the dining room could be lower...
