Wow! What an unbelievable experience! +\- 60 people with 3 rounds of tapas. All dishes were extremely tasty, fresh and very well prepared. Waiters were attentive and helpful. It made for a great experience on a very special night.

Way overdue is my review on this little gem. From the moment you walk through the somewhat daunting entrance, you feel right at home. The welcoming, lead by Cheslyn the manager and his staff, is warm, efficient and courteous. And any place in Cape Town...More

We didn’t make a reservation for the evening we arrived in Cape Town and didn’t have a lot of choices, but our hotel reserved a table for us here. The atmosphere is lively and the décor stylish, but the food and service were only mediocre....More
