restaurant bergvliet constantia cape town





Graham Isaacson, the original creator of the Lime Tree Cafe, set out to create a combination of wholesome, healthy, fresh ingredients with equal emphasis on flavour and presentation, often taking inspiration from North Africa, the Middle East, India and the far East.

Jeremy Law, the new owner as of May 2018, returned to South Africa after 9 years in Chile and fell in love with the simple charm and underlying excellence of the restaurant. Jeremy bought the business and has nurtured its strengths while continuously working to improve the offering.

As for the offering … In the morning we offer freshly baked cakes and scones, paninis accompanied by freshly ground coffee, tea or homemade juice.

The lunch and dinner menu selection is varied enough to suit most tastes, yet narrow enough to be able to guarantee freshly created meals of excellent quality. From genuinely sumptuous salads, to linefish, amazing linguines, curries, steaks and pizzas we have most tastes covered (we only do a few of each allowing us to maintain our high standards). We also always have a specials board for off-menu items depending on what we can get freshest and what is in season….and how the weather is outside.

We have three distinct areas within the restaurant. The bustling main section, the covered patio where we cultivate our delicious limes, and the Olio section which is quieter for meetings, card games, business or celebrations when we book it out for events.
