The atmosphere of this restaurant is amazing and the service is impeccable! Great selection of wines. The chef's recommendations are spot on. Prices are reasonable, though higher than your normal restaurant in and around Pretoria. Definitely try the slow roasted Springbok shank, it is exceptional!

Food is prepared with care and service is excellent. Lovely menu and the atmosphere is perfect for that special occasion. Situated overlooking the golf course, but with great character. There is a lovely bar for pre-dinner drinks. Definitely recommended!
