Craddled by the folds of the Table Mountain National Park and sheltered by towering oaks and whispering stone pines, The Lawns nestles against the rump of the Table Mountain National Park. Views are out across the Atlantic Ocean and the mountain peaks known as the Twelve Apostles, while high above cable cars whisk tourists to the top of Cape Towns iconic mountain. The Lawns at The Roundhouse is a relaxed all-day affair, with an array of outdoor spaces that take full advantage of this dramatic mountainside location.

    Amazing location. I will be back. Our meat platter had far too little bread on it to “serve 4” as the menu suggests. There could’ve been less meat and more bread. The amount of hummus for 4 people was ridiculous as well. I was honestly very disappointed with the meal. The other food looked really lovely though! Loved the view. Staff could’ve been a lot friendlier.

    We had a great evening and our waiters and the staff were fantastic. It was a bit of an inconvenience booking the patio area and been told to walk to the complete far end to go to the toilets when there were toilets a few meters away from us. Surely an agreement can be made with the restaurant for groups booked on the patio to use those toilets. The staff were ready for us and on the ball, thank you

    I go to this place because there is a good view and it is nice to be outside. However, every single time i'm shocked by the terrible service and quality of the food. Most recently, we had a 11:00am reservation and the menu says brunch is served until 11:30am. When the waiter came over to take our order at 11:22am, we were told we had missed the window to order brunch because the cut off time was 11:15am. If that is indeed the case then: 1) the menu should say that brunch is served until 11:15am, and 2) the waiter should have told us the moment we sat down that we only had 15 minutes to order brunch before the cutoff time. For a table that arrived at 11:00am, the waiter could at least have said "are you here for brunch?" Instead he didn't even ask us and then acted shocked when we tried to order brunch at 11:22am. Luckily he was able to get our brunch order in, but it's frustrating as a paying guest to have to beg for a brunch order to be made. When we finally got our food the portions were horrifically small and had no garnish or extras. We had to order two additional pizzas for our table so we could feel sometime satiated. Lastly, several ordered items were simply forgotten by the waiter, including sparking water and tap water and members of our party had to go straight to the bar to order them personally. The Lawns has a great view and it could do SO MUCH BETTER in terms of taking care of their customers. I hope they are able to improve.
