Pastis is situated alongside the vineyards of the world-renowned Groot Constantia, the oldest homestead in South Africa and a leading tourist destination. It exudes the same warm ambiance and informal atmosphere as the Constantia Valley area.We have a proud tradition of hearty meals with French flair at affordable, local prices.
The bustling ambiance and friendly interaction, together with traditional French cooking of the highest standard, promises an unforgettable dining experience.The restaurant is decorated in 1920’s Art Nouveau, brasserie style and immersed in the strains of Edith Piaf, Francois Hardy and various jazz legends. Outdoor seating in the summer sunshine looks out over the vineyards and a winding road that could be rising to an Alpine col, while the indoor restaurant area is bedecked with vintage French posters and fresh white table cloths.
The Merry Monk is on a separate level with a more contemporary feel in both style and music, complete with a warm winter fire for romantic evenings on quieter nights. The bar patio is also a smoking area. We are open from 08h30 until late every day and our menu is impressive in its range; quintessentially French with a South African flavour. Pastis is both family and pet-friendly, with well-behaved dogs allowed on the patio.
