A group of us went to this fantastic little restaurant to celebrate my graduation, as always it was an experience not to forget. The food was well considered and perfectly prepared, with a unique and interesting wine list to match. Can't wait to go again!

if the chef writes a menu that first has to be explained, nobody comes to do that, you have tough meat on your plate and someone tries to tell you because it's free range that can be expected, you're paying through your neck, get ripped off by having wine by the glass and paying the price of a bottle, for...

The restaurant comes with good reviews and hence the visit. The service was confusing and all over the place. You never know who is supposed to take which order and with all the really interesting choices on the menu no one gave us a proper introduction as well as recommendations to suit your palette. The food was very pretty but... More

We had a disastrous experience at this restaurant, from stale flowers at the entry to clueless waiters. The food was average at best, but the service is the main concern. No problem in paying a premium, but then you expect something in return. Must be our worst dining experience in a number of years.

Lovely ambience, a feast of different tastes and an absolute joy for your palet! This is a hidden gem if you look for something a little different without breaking the bank!This restaurant can compete with any of the more famous Franschhoek restaurants who serves food in the same style!

Ambience and view fantastic, but pity the pretentious nature of the food disappointed. Not a fine dining experience.
