A very nice restaurant in this square standing above the others for quality of foods and drinks on offer as well as friendliness. We had the mixed platter for 2 and it was copious to say the least.

What a lovely restaurant with attention to decor and excellent service. A honey & mustard sauce chicken pasta to die for, and vegetables cooked perfectly the way they should be – al dente! (Christelle, the very friendly manageress, was very accommodating of my Banting needs). It also has a great cocktail specials menu and a lovely ambience – we sat... More

Enjoyed grilled sole and a green salad--beautiful. A glass of dry white wine made the perfect lunch. Dined outside in a covered area. Wonderful surroundings.

While waiting for our wives (who were on a shopping trip) we had an extremely nice lunch (oysters) accompanied by a few bottles of perfect sauvignon blanc. Sitting under an umbrella in a very comfortable sofa, enjoying a fine breeze on a sunny day, was very relaxing. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Have a look at their cocktails menu for awesome specials before or after dinner, the menu is mainly Portuguese cuisine that our family loves

Very well priced restaurant. Food is tasty and well presented. The atmosphere is good and not too noisy. The ladies lived the grilled butternut salad with biltong and the men lived the steak and biltong combo. Definately a must-visit for the carnivores among us.
