Wonderful Goosefest

We had delicious goose as a special order and 9 of us thoroughly enjoyed the occasion. We hit on pinotage as the perfect medium priced accompaniment and could not think of a better way to pass a wet Sunday afternoon. Book in advance if you want to do the same!

Sunday celebration for my mothers birthday and my sons. Very good. Waiters are friendly polite and attentive without being too quick. Food was well presented and cooked. Recommend the sea bass and the fillet steak. Varied wine list - good choice. Smart relaxed surroundings. Not cheap but quality worth it. We've only lunched here so can't speak for those reviews...

Second, and last, visit to Papillon. Menu so attractive, skipped breakfast to enjoy roast beef lunch. Anticipation was better than actual. Not Rib of beef as promised but topside which was as tough as leather. Plate swimming in gravy so difficult to find what was on plate. Veggies not al dente but hard. Offered Lamb to replace Beef but this... More

I booked Papillon recently for a large party for my 18th birthday as I wanted it to be special and rumour had it that this was the place to go for such an occasion. We had booked the table with the Boss's son who had promised a fun evening with entertainment and no worries about our noise. After being told... More

Not been for a while & missed the place, service as always was spot on. The wine was very good. Food was really good, 2 of the 4 main courses weren't even on the menu but Nino & his team as always came up trumps. Lucky to have this place so close to home.....

I was invited to a birthday party here, there were a lot of guests in the group, so this review is based upon the experience being an "organized party" type event. Considering that our host nearly had the entire resturant booked, I was expecting a kind of pre-package catering sort of experience. But I was pleasantly surprised that it turned... More
