This is really a hidden gem. A real Bistro only a stones throw from Beach Rd. Good food, good wine, good service & at very reasonable prices. On top the place has very good vibes! Well worth a visit.

I have been eating at this restaurant since it started as a little coffee shop. The food is always good quality, different exceptionally good menu. Plates well styled. Food delicious, getting pricy though. It is one of three restaurants next to each other and owned by the same owners. All three restaurants serve fab food.

To get a table it's a hustle it was full or reserved. When we finally get the table the food was ok but a bit expensive. Nothing special.

Situated in a road running parallel to the beach road, the restaurant has outside seating at the front. Although it's on the road, it doesn't feel like you're sitting on the pavement and I think a number of diners were local . The service was very good - the best we'd had in Cape Town - friendly and attentive. Two... More

Only after I had looked-up the name online, I understood why it was full (and couldn't get a table) when I happened to accidently pass by, wanting to have dinner. It looked festive from the outside, had a nice terrace, and an interesting enough menu outside. After having read some raving reviews, I booked a table for later in the... More

We had a casual supper with some friends (total of 8 guests). The service was as usual great - something that is not a guarantee in Cape Town restaurants... The food was tasty and good value for money, and the wine-list has a decent well-priced variety on offer. The atmosphere is casual but does not feel 'cheap' and being a... More

Ate dinner here last year and returned this time. Friendly and attentive service, good atmosphere and excellent food and wine choices. We had booked a table and on the night it was a good job we had as the place was very busy.

We have been to this restaurant about 5 times on different visits to Cape Town including 2 this time. The restaurant is set on Main Road in Sea Point so a little out of the City Centre, but only just up from the Sea-front and easy to get to. It isn't a smart fancy place and doesn't pretend to be,...
