We were just cruising through and ate here, we had never heard of it previously. My wife and I both thought it was great, the service from Patricia, the Crispy duck and my bobotie.

Great meal, good service. We had a good table near the open fire. Good menu with mussels in a creamy garlic sauce and beef fillet being especially good.
