Again, Antoinette and her team from Zinzi did their thing! A special evening was spent with my husband, Ole and friend, Christa Joubert from Christiana Lodge. The wines were selected perfectly joined with the amazing culinary offerings. These photos speak a thousand words. Well done to all of you.

This was a comfortable spot to dine after a long day of touring. Don't expect a quick meal, it seemed rather slow, but the food was very good.
