Love the 2 course pricing! For R110 get a starter and a main. But my Ostrich meatballs were dry and over salted. Starter of butternut ravioli was just average. Great setting, romantic lighting... Great wine list and general vibe! Would go back but order the mushroom and fillet risotto - my friends raved about it!

The chair covers were tatty and torn, the table was scratched and they did not even give us placemats with our food Food was tasteless and very salty and single dishes really overpriced and... More

Given the rave reviews, we maybe went there with too high expectations. The ambiance was perfect but the food, wine and service was definitely not the best we had in CT. We had asked for every course to the waiter what the specials of the kitchen was, so we certainly got the best they had to offer but it just... More

Great ambience and service, and seriously good food for an affordable price. I've been back more than once, and I have to say my favourite dish is the pork belly, and every single dessert is absolutely delicious. I also love that they have such a large selection of wines available. Definitely one of my favourite restaurants in Cape Town!
