Turner would have been inspired as an artist to capture the light that falls upon the Constantia Valley. I am sure his brush strokes would have created a beautiful masterpiece had he come across this part of Mother Nature’s beauty. Set in the heart of the Constantia valley lies a 300-year old wine estate, Groot Constantia. As part of the internationally renowned Constantia Wine Route, the estate continues to be one of the most popular stops on the route – largely to its status as one of the most beautiful, traditional and classic vineyards in Cape Town.
The eatery Simon’s is comfortably ensconced in this magnificent setting among the panoramic views of the valley. The restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere for all seasons. A giant fire for chilly days and a fabulous terrace for those hot summer afternoons and evenings. The staff is attentive, efficient and friendly. Simon’s accommodates across the chopping board – everyone! A family, couples, groups and parties are all welcome there. The restaurant remains a hub on Groot Constantia.
The culinary experience is in the quality of the fresh seasonal ingredients. From our starters to our mains, the subtle flavors that aroused my taste buds were pure and honest flavors, displaying a wholesome approach to cooking. All time classic meals such as the famous fish and chips, or a scrumptious creation with a twist and flair will certainly not disappoint you. The Smoked Norwegian Salmon and Prawns were delicious and for the Banting meat lovers, the slow braised Pork Belly was sensational! The accompaniment by a glass of Groot Constantia wine was the cherry on the top, so to speak.
