The food was very good and the service too! What makes this place memorable is the fact that it is frequented by locals and tourists alike, that the food is of fresh and good quality and that the setting, with its private terrace is unique in Sea Point. Also the price is very reasonable for what you get!

Several friends and I enjoyed a meal here when in Cape Town earlier this year wrapping up our trip. We all had the tasting menu, which was perfect. Much less heavy than a few others we’d done on the trip. Great service - the wait staff was friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. I also love that you can BYO... More

The food was fantastic and the setting was perfect. This was an excellent tasting menu experience. The service, presentation, food & atmosphere were all great. The pork, gazpacho and Namibian lamb were my favourites. We were a party of 5 celebrating my son's 18th birthday - a gift from his friend. What an incredible evening with incredible people and food... More

Visited on a beautiful, still Cape Town evening and could not have imagined a better setting. Lovely restaurant with friendly staff and superb food - the tasting menu was to die for!

What an experience! This was my first tasting menu experience. While I enjoy nice restaurants, I don't often have the opportunity to experience fine dining restaurants. The service, presentation, food & atmosphere were all great. We have the summer tasting menu with wine pairing. The gazpacho & Namibian lamb dishes were my favorites. Also, very generous pours on the wine!... More

This restaurant was a delight from start to finish. It was a beautiful evening so the tables had been set up in the courtyard which looked lovely. Our party of four chose the Tasting Menu which offered great choices and each course was beautifully plated with delicately prepared food. Friendly management and good unobtrusive service.

Good food, romantic. All that we wished for. We took the six course tasting menu. A bit expensive but worth it.

If you like fine dining and you dont want to spend a lot of money this is the place! We took the six course Tasting Menu, great plating, great tastes!! The only thing was that we waited a bit too long for the desserts, otherwise GREAT!!

Delicately prepared food customised for pretty much all tastes. As a vegan, there was plenty good food to eat.
