Yummy lunch

Delicious food. Well presented. Lovely staff. Nice and cool inside. Food is expensive. But it's good and tasty. I had pork neck. So tender. My friends ate steak tartare and raved.

We were very excited to try this restaurant after hearing so much about it. We had the prawn soup and beetroot salad starts, followed by the beef fillet.

We had delicious food last night. I was very impressed with salmon salad. My friends enjoyed ostrich and beef tartar... both excellent choices. The place was very busy so service was a bit slow but all in all was a lovely evening. We will be back!

We had dinner here on our first night in the beautiful courtyard. Everything was perfect - the amazing food, the friendly, fun service, the romantic setting. We toured round South Africa for over 2 weeks and decided at the end that amongst many fabulous dinners, this was the best for its great mix of yummy food, service and location/atmosphere. Out...

So that evening we walked up an got a table at bizerca. The menu is written on a black board which was brought to your table.... More
