New beautiful setting. High quality, innovative restaurant. Reuben is a celebrity chef who spends much of his time in this restaurant. He was there the night we went and the experience could not have been better.

Fantastic all round, springbok should be recommended at nothing else but medium rare. Loved the chili squid !! Packed with flavor! Would go back just for that.
