Winter special at 5 Rooms

I’ve just spent the last 20 minutes loading this special onto Food24 and after realising how reasonable it is, I’m definitely planning to check it out!

5 Rooms is situated in the Alphen Hotel in Constantia and has only been open for a couple of months.

I’ve heard great things from Caro, and I know that my friend Sierra  and her husband go there fairly often. I really need to try it!!

Anyway, Here’s what you can look forward to: (I’ve heard that the best table is the corner table in the ‘portrait room’. Just saying).
