A R500pp deposit is required to secure your reservation. Your deposit will be due within 24 hours of you making your reservation – kindly note we are a very small restaurant and can only accommodate minimal guests therefore deposits are vital to a wonderful festive season.
A discretionary 12% service charge will be added to all bills.

Our menus are packed with Cape flavours and therefore seasonally inspired and therefore some ingredients might vary as per availability.
Upper Bloem menus are also available in vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, gluten-free and pescatarian alternatives.
