Rhodes Memorial Restaurant & Tea Garden

This unique restaurant and tea garden found behind the famous Rhodes Memorial in Newlands offers spectacular views across the city towards the Cape Flats, Helderberg, and Hottentots Holland mountain ranges.

The restaurant has been created out of a charming old cottage and offers both indoor and outdoor seating, landscaped gardens, and a playground with swings, slides, a jungle gym, and sand pit. It’s a great choice for when you want to escape from the urban rush and enjoy a bit of nature.

The menu is seasonal and offers al fresco dining in the summertime. In winter, a roaring fire will  keep you warm, along with wholesome meals. The on-site bakery offers sweet treats, and there is a great high tea available on request. You can combine a visit to the tea garden with a mountain walk or bike ride and, of course, take in the panoramic views from Rhodes Memorial itself.
