Superb food. It was a busy evening, but the lovely food came out of the kitchen in good time, and was, as usual, delicious. Friends with us had dessert, and were well and truly stuffed!

The restaurant is small but cosy, with wonderful French inspired cuisine. Appears to be owner operated, she is doing a lot regarding the service, he is the chef de cuisine. Very good atmosphere, fantastic food quality for very fair prices. Reservations advisable.

We loved the food, the meat was en point, so was the fish. The dishes were local with a French twist or the other way around. The service was friendly, attentive and welcoming. We enjoyed our dinner and will return at the next occasion.

This was by far the worst meal we had at our South Africa trip. The Cote the boeuf was very tough and nearly not possible to eat. We had so fantastic steaks and dinners at our trip but this evening was a desaster. We went...More
