Wow, this place is absolutely awesome and a must visit! We thoroughly enjoyed both the food and the great service. As someone visiting from the US, I was blown away by the beef quality and the prices. We tried the pepper steak and the 450g (1lb) steak and they were both stellar. For the quality and size of the meat we would have paid 4x-5x more.

Everything from the service, food presentation, atmosphere and the food quality exceeded expectations.

Everything was a great experience and I plan to head back before I go back home.

My wife and I ate in this restaurant and after having a few rich local meals decided to have a simple dinner and we both opted for good old fish and chips. I am not sure what type of fish it was ( suspect hake but not sure) but it was lovely and tasty and the batter was crispy and not greasy. Really nice food served by friendly waiting staff.

I visited the restaurant for lunch with my wife and 10 month year old son. Our waiter was fantastic. She was very interactive and gave us a sense of value as customers. We were very supprised at the value fore money the fish and chips dish offered. She deserves a pat on the back. Keep up the good work "Ivanna".

The best steaks in Camps Bay, a must if you are in the area, nice ambience and direct sea views. Friendly staff, fast service and prices are reasonable by Cape Town standards.

We had our wedding rehearsal dinner here. The service was excellent and the ambience was great. The manager, Steve, worked with us closely on preparations and was very accommodating. Other restaurants in the area were more interested in overcharging us for things that we did not want. The food was so good that we have eaten there several times since. Every time the food has been the best food we have tasted in Cape Town or Camps Bay. We had 18 guests and everyone raved about their food.

The steaks are so tender you can cut them with a butter knife. One of our guests reheated leftover fillet 3 days later and was shocked to taste that it still tasted better than steaks in the US. The Trinchado is a favorite appetizer of ours now. The Butcher's Fillet is a fork-tender fillet with rosemary and cheese and herbs. The Bushmans kebab lets you try springbok, ostrich, and kudu. Our favorite was the springbok.

I highly recommend this restaurant and thank them for making our rehearsal dinner such a success.
