The Lawns at The Roundhouse

The Lawns at The Roundhouse

Cradled by the folds of the Table Mountain National Park and sheltered by towering oaks and whispering stone pines, The Lawns at The Roundhouse is a relaxed all-day affair with an array of outdoor spaces that take full advantage of its dramatic mountainside location. 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 Town’s iconic mountain.

It certainly is a beautiful space; a multi-faceted venue to suit any time of day. Alongside the historic Roundhouse four spacious deck areas are scattered with bistro-style furnishings, while a handful of long tables are ideal for convivial group get-togethers. A few steps away, the Lawns Sunset Deck offers superb late afternoon views in a more casual setting ideal for impromptu evening drinks.

The Lawns are also subtly divided into an array of stylish spaces - the intimate Oak Terrace is the ideal space for small groups and couples. While there’s a vibrant buzz across the decks and lawns, the Cabana Lawn is for those seeking a more exclusive experience - here the choice of picnics includes generous breakfast spreads, delectable lunch baskets and superb sundowner snacks, or guests can order off the main restaurant menu.

Head Chef Alain Fredericks has put together a wide-ranging à la carte menu that will take care of those hunger pangs from morning until night. An extensive drinks list complements the menu, with a choice for every palate and pocket. Think inventive cocktails, craft beers and a well-priced wine list that roams from the Cape to Champagne.

While those stellar sea views make The Lawns ideal for evening cocktails, the impressive food and wine offering is just one more reason this is far more than a sultry sundowner spot.
