A great restaurant. Excellent service, a choice of cocktails very good, the food very well presented and very , very good. The atmosphere, alive, busy, but comfortable. Their normal coffee and espresso is terrible, but otherwise I can only recommend, go there it is worth it

This is most probably one of the trendiest, busiest restaurant that I have ever visited. December 2014. Although the place was packed, my daughter and I were extremely lucky to get a table without booking. We ordered the roast duck and sweet and sour pork. It was well prepared and well presented. The young guy that served us was very... More

Nice setting love the vibe however bit over priced for the amount of food you get. Main meal portions are very small.

We were invited Sunday buffet that was amazing. I had more food than I should have because I couldn't refuse the temptation. Great value for money. By the way the bar is phenomenal and the cocktails are of the best I have tasted in a long time. Sunday Buffet well recommended !!!

Was told about it by friends, but not as impressed as they sounded. Service was ok, as was the food. Wasn't disapointed but not thrilled. Will try again sometime, perhaps just unlucky.

Have been many times but were disappointed to have to wait in VERY long queues for lunch! Too many people! Restaurant too greedy? Also, despite a dress code, was VERY disappointed to see others allowed in who obviously couldn't give a damn and had absolutely no respect for their fellow diners! Shame! I sincerely hope it isn't a sign that... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Cape Town. The atmosphere is buzzy; yet relaxing and almost regal. The service is superbly professional. The wine list boasts a wide selection of the Western Cape's finest and the food is tasty and well presented. I have noticed, however, that the portion size has diminished slightly in the last year...
