For those who want a fine dining experience in a building steeped in history and with stunning views, The Roundhouse is the perfect option. Located in the valleys of Table Mountain, the restaurant has some of the most beautiful surroundings of any restaurant in the city. The building has existed since the 18th century, when it was built by the Dutch East India Company to be used as a guardhouse. Since then, it’s been used as a dance hall, a hunting lodge and a hotel – and is now famous as one of the best places to eat in the city. Guests can either enjoy fine dining inside the restaurant, or have a more relaxed experience eating tapas-style foods out on the sprawling lawns.
