The Cellars-Hohenort Hotel & Spa in Cape Town has re-launched their Conservatory restaurant with a brand-new design and interiors; a contemporary summer menu; and a talented young head chef heading up the kitchen brigade.

Tanya Johnson, the GM of The Cellars-Hohenort Hotel & Spa says: ‘We’re re-launching The Conservatory Restaurant, inviting diners to immerse themselves in the history of Constantia and the spectacular gardens surrounding us.’

Forest garden theme

The iconic Constantia restaurant boasts a fresh new forest garden theme, courtesy of HotCocoa Interiors & Design, who created a richly layered, and refreshingly whimsical new look that pays homage to the heritage of the hotel and restaurant.

Designed to live up to its name, The Conservatory Restaurant is set around a glass atrium as focal point and has been transformed into a relaxed, indoor oasis with floor-to-ceiling views linking tranquil dining areas with nature.

The restaurant leads to the dining terrace with a curved pergola that is framed by the lush gardens, and views of Table Mountain in the distance.

Summer menu

The new summer menu features a style of lighter cuisine, using local fresh seasonal produce, and includes many of the iconic dishes that The Cellars-Hohenort is known for.

Armed with solid experience and youthful passion, Head Chef Daniel Blignaut is supported at The Cellars-Hohenort Hotel & Spa by Group Executive Chef of The Liz McGrath Collection, Tronette Dippenaar, to offer a contemporary, world-class culinary experience presented with warm South African hospitality and service.

The Conservatory offers different menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as a Terrace menu in the afternoons between 3pm and 5pm. It’s open to hotel guests, as well as non-resident guests by prior reservation.
