Took my girlfriend here last Wednesday. What a great night out. The food was good, not the best I've had, but certainly in the top 10 or 15 (the dessert was top 5).

A warm welcome. 2. A cheerful waitron. 3. An incredible bottle of wine. 4. A delicious complementary soup. 5. A mouthwatering main course.... More

Loved the atmosphere, the food and the amazing selection of delicious wines. I had the Springbok Venison which was quite literally one of the tastiest dishes I've ever had. Staff were great too and just a great over all experience.

Every bite and every dish is an eating experience and compares with the best in the world! It has one of the best winelists I have ever seen. Waiters are friendly and informative.

We know this restaurant since 18 years when we started going here. However it is very seldom that a Restaurant this caliber improves and improves with the years - but this one has done it. Amazing art by owner and Chef Harald Bresselschmidt! Last night I was on my own and tried the new Winter (South Africa) menu which is... More
