Nestled in the glens of Table Mountain, The Roundhouse Restaurant is steeped in a rich history as old as the Cape itself. It is this very location that led to the building’s creation as a guardhouse in 1786 by the Dutch East India Company. With its sweeping views of Camps Bay and the expansive Atlantic, it was ideally situated to safeguard the Cape of Storms from attack. Chefs PJ Vadas and Eric Bulpitt, both schooled in classic European cuisine, offer contemporary dishes that combine this European background with a distinctly South African character. They are constantly looking to revive forgotten South African ingredients and recipes and incorporate them into the menu in a modern way.The sourcing of ingredients is an extension of this locality – by actively sourcing the best artisanal produce that local producers have to offer, and using these ingredients in a style that is true to nature.

Rumbullion (Closed in Winter)
"Rumbullion" is the name for the terraces at The Roundhouse. "Rumbullion" is a 17th Century term meaning "a riotous good time" and the terraces seek to recreate this philosophy with a focus of people sharing great food, fine wines and sipping on classic forgotten cocktails in the most sensational outdoor setting. Nestled amongst 300-year-old pomegranate trees and beautifully landscaped gardens, Guests will enjoy whole loaves of freshly-baked bread, decanters of wine, and sumptuous whole roasts - creating only the most vivid, fun-filled and enduring memories.
