Yummy-ness on your plate!

Oh my goodness! Their food is absolutely amazing! From the Burgers to the Pastas and Tapas - there is something for everyone! Portions are a good size and full of awesome flavour!

We had oysters for starters and a seafood platter for 2 and this was so delicious. The cheesecake was good I would go back for some more. Thanks to the staff who made it such a pleasant experience.

The staff was really friendly! I was looking forward to some prawns that they advertised. Two of us ate prawns. Mine arrived before the 2nd persons. We waited a while and when hers arrived we started to eat. Mine was ok, but it really tasted quite bland. Our cousin kept quiet but I saw that something was wrong. She said... More

We had the best steak and cosmopolitans! The service was also good. The restaurant was well marked and it had a lovely atmosphere with a burning fire place.

We went for lunch and ordered fried fish, a burger and the beef stroganoff pasta.The fish itself was moist, but the batter was too thick and too dark. No complaints about the other two dishes, but nothing spectacular either.

We chose to eat here because it was recommended to us but we were not impressed. The main problem was that we were sat in the front on the restaurant and it was very cold. We asked if the ceiling heater could be switched on but were told that it did not work. Other diners were given blankets but when... More

What a wonderful dining experience. Food is certainly of a high standard and so is the restaurant. We loved our lunch and it certainly is a 'got to go back again' kinda place!

The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating. We were welcomed by a friendly man (assumed to be the manager) who made good recommendation on kudu medallions. The pepper cream sauce that accompanies the meat was very delicious.. the mixed vegetables were very tasty and the potato wedges were excellent. I requested for well done meat and it came bleeding.... More

Ate here one evening. I had fish and my partner had steak. Both were not great. Wouldn't recommend the chocolate nemesis. Wished we went elsewhere.

On the recommendation of fellow travellers we dined here one evening when staying in Wilderness. It's a down to earth, nothing special looking restaurant in appearance but don't be fooled by that. The menus offer a good choice of food and ours was absolutely delicious with beautifully cooked, generous sized portions. Prompt friendly service and great value prices made for... More
