Best meat I've ever had. The Carpaccio was sublime and the steak melted like butter. Great variety of drinks and great service. Probably the best that happened to us in Durban

Great food, beef carpaccio with biltong was amazing. Steaks are unbeatable, no marinate, so juicy and perfectly prepared. So good that we went back twice on our 4 day stay in Durban. Booking is a must for this restaurant
