Not our first visit to Market so it is proven as a nice little venue with good food and excellent atmosphere. Service staff are attentive and knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. Food is fresh and consistent, heading in the right direction. Love the outdoor court yard seating and casual feel. Good wines. Will return.

Quick afternoon coffee and cake with business colleagues, in between visits to clients. Good service, fine coffee, and glorious lemon meringue, with plenty of lemon and super pastry. We'll be back!

Very good restaurant to relax with friends and enjoy a selection from a well chosen menu. Service was good and waitress was charming. Our group all had excellent, well-presented mains followed by first class dessert. Prices were medium to high and corkage charged between R45 and R90 depending on whether local or foreign wine was brought.

Had lunch here with a colleague and enjoyed every moment of it. The menu offered a big variety of dishes. I ordered the burger and it was well prepared and tasty. Service was excellent and the setting in the garden was just what I needed. Thanks Rachel for taking me there and if you want a quiet place to have... More

We had only one problem with this restaurant : S-L-O-W service. The decor and vibe are warm, welcoming and absolutey charming. So were the staff. The menu offered wide variety, enticing dishes and modest prices. We ordered chicken tagliatelle with pesto and roast tomatoes, which were truly good subject matter for gastronomic fantasies (I have others!) My latte was delicious... More

Listening to a great singer over lunch brought back many pleasant memories - terrific selection of songs. Most pleasant outdoor setting - easy to see why all those arriving asked for an outside table. BUT that is where it stopped. Service is friendly but very slow - 20 minutes to get a carafe of water, etc. The menu is varied... More

We were guests of "locals" , and what a treat. An extensive "specials" menu, any requests accommodated. Very friendly staff, great atmosphere only surpassed by the food. A great night.

Food outstanding. Wine list decent. Ambiance and decor is lovely - al fresco seating around a fountain under large white umbrellas and at night - candles on the table and twinkle lights coiled in the trees. Sitting outside whether at lunch or dinner, always transports me and makes me feel as if I am in Europe - in a good... More

Live around the corner from this place, visit it often and am never disappointed. Nice and central, but off the beaten track. Good for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
