Fodor's Expert Review The Roundhouse

$$$$ Table Mountain National Park Modern European

Known for its exceptional natural beauty, Cape Town is surprisingly short on restaurants with killer views: The Roundhouse is helping close that gap. Converted from its origins as an 18th-century Table Mountain–side hunting lodge, this unique fine-dining restaurant overlooking Camps Bay specializes in creative and surprising flavor combinations—think mussels with oak-smoked butter and kombu gel—served by an excellent and exceptionally suave team of waiters. The Somerset Room offers sea views, but can be noisy. The private room for up to eight guests may better suit big groups. The adjacent "Rumbullion" picnic area from which diners can enjoy breathtaking mountain and sea views serves a more casual burger and pizza style menu, and is an excellent place to while away a summer afternoon. Opening hours vary with season, so best to call and check.
