Great staff. Very friendly. Good views. Busy even on a Sunday evening. The food was excellent. You can even order steak with extra steak! The wine list was extensive and very reasonable. This place is a must visit!

A beautiful setting, great and friendly staff. The food was good.Not the cheapest place if you are on a budget, but definitely worth the money. Very popular with the local people.

Just back from dinner in this restaurant. We had a series of things which went wrong. The food itself is soso, service us terrible. We had to ask for bread 3 times and it took 20 minutes. We were 3 people and we never ate...More

We arrived after a long drive from Cape Town - famished. The service was excellent and so friendly. Wine was great and we both had the Portuguese steaks - which were done to perfection! I highly recommend this restaurant!

Average food with good friendly service. Have had the lamb shank there three times and each time it has been totally different. Was not crazy about the flavour of the meal in general. The steak Trinchada was very tasty though and the pudding was good....More
