The food and service was excellent. The 45 guests were served a three course meal in 2 hours. The Restaurant view of Mandela square is absolutely beautiful.

The settings is nic, looking out over the Nelson Mandela square. The menu looks promising, but.... First they try to sell us several times their promo wines (from New Zealand). We felt it was a bit too pushy. My appetizer was good, but the sausages my wife ordered were very tough and dry. The souvlaki as main course was good,... More

Dishes are close but not quite right, probably adapted to local taste. On the expensive side of things.

The food was quite reasonable here, I had a massive portion of ribs but it might have been better with a bit more finesse.
