• Deliciously versatile

      Earthy with a natural sweetness, a Jerusalem artichoke is everything but its name. Although distantly related as members of the daisy family, a Jerusalem artichoke is not an artichoke (and it’s also not from Jerusalem). Also known as a sunchoke, this perennial plant sports beautiful yellow flowers and earthy, elongated tubers resembling ginger roots. […]

  • Mother’s Day at The Roundhouse

    We have a special treat in store for you this Sunday. Our executive chef Dylan Laity created a special Mother’s Day menu in honour of all the women who helped to raise us. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and we couldn’t agree more. So let’s celebrate our grannies, aunts and […]

  • A Taste of Winter

    Every year when we change our menu to celebrate the new season that lies ahead, we cannot help to think ‘is it that time already?’ Well, it sure is. A time of comfort and slow-roasted lamb, freshly baked bread and soup around the kitchen table, wine and cheese in front of the fireplace and a […]

  • Earth Day 2017

    Saturday 22 April is Earth Day – a global event created to raise awareness and support environmental protection.

Today, almost […]

  • Hop, skip and jump to the Roundhouse this Easter weekend from 14 – 16 April 2017

    We are yet to find another long weekend that’s as much fun as the Easter weekend. If you’re visiting the Mother City, or just a local staying in, you should definitely hop on over to the Roundhouse this coming weekend. And if you need more reasons to visit us (besides the Rumbullion being the perfect […]

Welcome to The Roundhouse

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.

Since then, the building has also functioned as a hotel, dance hall and, most famously, Lord Charles Somerset’s hunting lodge. This history of luxury and hospitality is still fundamental at The Roundhouse today, offering guests extraordinary cuisine, fine wine and spirits and exceptional service.

The outside dining area at The Roundhouse, The Rumbullion, eases up on the fine dining and offers guests a tapas-style menu, while unwinding in the sun on the lush lawns.

The entire property, or parts thereof, is also available for exclusivity bookings, tailored for you to create bespoke memories.

And so The Roundhouse invites you to come relive a time of romance and royalty, enveloped by the same breathtaking scenery that caused its initial inception.

One lucky reader stands the chance of winning six tickets to this fun festival on the lawns of the The Rumbullion.

There’s surely no better way to enjoy some excellent craft beer with your mates than on the lawns of Camps Bay’s Rumbullion Restaurant, with arguably the best views of Camps Bay, the Twelve Apostles and the glistening Atlantic beyond. Add a boerie roll (pizza or rotisserie chicken), and you have the makings of the best summer send-off ever.


This fun craft-beer experience – which runs from 11am until 6pm on Sunday, 30 April – is the Rumbullion’s last event for summer 2017. In addition to top-drawer beer, revellers can expect wine, live music, delicious food and all-round fun. Tickets cost R300 each and include five draughts, a boerewors roll and a beer glass. (There is also a VIP ticket option, available on request.)

If boerie rolls are not your thing, you can order something scrumptious off the day’s limited-edition menu, which includes all of The Rumbullion’s most well-loved dishes, including rotisserie chicken and amazing pizzas.
