I visited especially recently so I can take a photo of the scrumptious dishes, and what was left after I indulged in the best cuisine! Friendly staff; quality food; lovely ambiance. I’ll be back. I have been several times!

The food was so good we when twice in just over a week. Interesting menu with a South African flavour. All dishes we ordered were delicious. Wine choice again focusing on South Africa was excellent and good value. Service also very pleasant.

A truly exceptional little restaurant. Dinner here is never less than exceptional with an eclectic international cuisine ranging from South African Braai platter to Goat curry. Even the music is a cut above normal. Very friendly staff. I've visited 5 or 6 times for dinner...More
