La Grotto in Constantia is a small, cosy restaurant run by owner Tony Foster, who head up a team of passionate people with a love for great things. Or in their own words: “A love for great things, in particular great food, great wine, great company and great times. We believe life is all about experiences!”

This family / bistro style restaurant only uses top quality fresh ingredients, the meat is well matured and the fish arrives fresh daily. All the meals are served with fresh home cooked vegetables.


Some of their most popular dishes on the extensive menu include their Pepper Fillet, Seafood Platter (for one or two), Bombay Tiger Prawns and the Seafood Soup. The menu also includes a kiddie menu offering fish, steak or calamari with chips and salad.

They cater for private functions ranging from 21st birthdays to office parties.


“I am sticking my neck out there, but I doubt I have had more tender calamari anywhere in Cape Town.” - Andrew Bergman Top of the Times

“What is your best Cape Town secret? If you are looking for one of the best steaks you will ever have in your life, you will have to visit La Grotto.” - Question asked by Weekend Argus to Nicholas Snow
