The Lawns at the Roundhouse / Camps Bay

Dining and playing with a view.

The Lawns literally offers what the name suggests: green lawns, plenty of space, a fantastic mountain view and a perfect spot for sundowner drinks. Truth to be told, this restaurant is slightly more expensive than other places in Cape Town. But the location and view probably justify the higher prices and your kids will have fun, too! In summer, you’ll always find a massive jumping castle on the lawn along with a jungle gym and swings.

They also offer kiddies meals on the menu and we’re pretty sure that your entire family will leave the restaurant in happiness. In case you want to avoid a bad surprise, you can check out their menu and prices here: The Lawns Menu

The only small downside: it’s too hot to play there on a really warm summer day because the playground and jumping castle are not shaded which means the kids would have to play in the open sun all the time. For that reason, we usually go there in the late afternoon to avoid the hottest time of the day and keep the kids out of the sun.

Our Experience

We love this place in town and we always take our guests there to enjoy the mountain view, good Cape Town vibes and delicious food. Our kids are all over the jumping castle and busy running up and down the hill. The fat sacks are also great fun to play with and we have to order the kiddies hot dog and milkshake. This means pure happiness for the children.
