Very disappointing

I recently attended the Oak Leaf for a private function. The venue is lovely but that's where the good things begin and end! The food was awful! Stale bread rolls, half the tables didn't receive starters and some guests were left with bones and skin as a choice of meat. The desserts were substandard and cold water was first provided for tea and coffee. I definitely cannot recommend the Oak Leaf as a function venue unless you don't mind providing your own food!

The Pink Coffee Boutique is one of the most charming and interesting places to go out to in Cape Town. The owners have kept it as a house and it is so interesting to just walk in, from the stacked pictures on the floor to the restaurant, which probably used to be an old verandah - now enclosed, with reeded ceiling and zinc walls. So informal and friendly and bright. The food was yummy, the service friendly and efficient. What a lovely place this is! Atmosphere reminds me of a time before the electronic age in which we live now - a much slower pace of life lived amid the diversity and beauty of our unique city.

Attended a function at this beautiful venue last night. What a letdown. The food was dreadful, cold and fatty and I noticed that a few people only managed to get cold veg. Lamb consisted of 'bones '. Bread rolls were stale , no dressing for the limp lettuce, cold water for tea/coffee - 'hot' eventually arrived. Candy table I believe provided by the hosts was awesome. Thank to the host of the party the vibe was awesome-they made up for the SAD food. Definitely do NOT recommend this venue unless you provide your own food.

I shall definitely NOT recommend this venue. Very sad because it's a beautiful venue but the food is awful. Cold and fatty and the last few people went without despite a few no- shows. Bread rolls were stale, clearly cannot afford dressing for the limp lettuce and butter was a 'no- show'. Come on guys .... Don't you care about your business ?????

Lovely venue but that where it begins and ends. Food very bad - cold-insufficient--rolls very stale. Promises of great dessert -a few leftover pieces of chocolate cake obviously from a previous party. A thrown together fruit salad that was NOT on the menu. COLD water for tea and coffee-hot eventually arrived!!!! Most definitely not a venue I would recommend for anything other than children's party Extremely unprofessional. Staff very helpful but management should go back to catering school. It really isn't difficult to deliver what you promise.
