Nothing disappointed. Nothing stood out. They try to be upmarket with nice white linen and prices to match. But when you're done, it's just average. Nothing really wrong with the place either.

We dined here twice during our stay in South Africa in May 2017 and fortunately had the same waiter for both nights, David was professional with outstanding service. The food and wine was fantastic and both nights were highly enjoyable.
