Although the restaurant was packed, the service was excellent and efficient. The food was exactly what we ordered and how we ordered it. Value for money comes to mind.

We stopped for a quick bite on this restaurant on our way to the garden route and what a surprise. We enjoyed the pasta and the salads. The service was amazing. Surely we will come back on our return .
