I have been there many times. We even had our staff Christmas dinner here. The food is wonderful. I had a blue cheese salad some time back and that is what I miss as the last time I went they did not have it. They should have it on the menu again. Other than that there are also other salads...

Went here for my birthday meal and was not disappointed. A sophistacated place with a menu to match. My steak was done to perfection and the other meals were thoroughly enjoyed by my family, especially the mozambique chicken and lamb shank. The views over the Indian ocean are lovely. Will definitely go back. Highly recommended

Visited this restaurant after a long absence. Was not disappointed. Our group was happy with the friendly and efficient service. The food was great with one of the better rare steaks I have had in Durban. Good wine list. Will go there again.

We went there with another couple and had Mozam chicken,lamb shank,pork belly and crème brulé with coffee and a good bottle of wine. The staff were very attentive. Will certainly go back again and again.

Hubby to be and my favourite restaurant. Ingredients are always top shelf and we know the menu off. Fav starters were ostrich carpacio and salmon bruschetta (my spelling is lacking) & mains are lamb chops or peri peri calamari or the prawn dish. Favourite dessert is the ever famous chocolate fondant! Best cosmos in Durban too!

It's been a long time since I've been to a restaurant and had great food and service. I ordered the Fillet on the bone which was done to perfection and I struggle to remember the last time I had such a tasty steak. My guests had Risotto rump, Jalapeño Fillet and Calamari grill and they all gave there meals 10/10.... More

We were a table of 28. We got fantastic service from our waiter who was friendly and efficient. The quality of all the dishes was superb, the taste of all the dishes was superb, the atmosphere was superb and so was the decor, very tastefully done. Will definitely visit again. Loved it all!
