Small but excellent restaurant with a good range of dishes and a specials board. Milkshakes and pizzas are a must! The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. We stayed in the adjoining Urban Cityblue hotel which is a little oasis of calm.

Didn't get value for money spent. Pizza was not tasty at all. Asked for icecream and was only given one small spoon dipped in amarula.

The ambiance is great for solitude in the heart of the city... they have the best pizza in town but the food is a bit too bland. We tried the pork ribs and nearly asked to pay 50% of the bill just because the food...More
