What a fabulous place to eat. Small and personal. Nicely decorated, with a real friendly atmosphere. Great food, well presented. Sang happy birthday to me in 3 different languages and made my day very special. Will definitely go again.

After wanting to eat there for ages my fiancèe and I went there.

Every single plate had fruit coulis on it, including the bread. The menu is tired... More

Booked table for three, were seated early, met with helpful staff. Food was excellent, wide range, all meals really big and reasonably priced. Surpassed by the live entertainment. Teenage son and I played on the bongos and whole restaurant enjoyed. It was my birthday, the staff sung happy birthday in bot English and Afrikaans. Free slice of birthday, really made... More

This place is very interesting and different. If your looking for somewhere different this is the place to go. The menu does sound off putting but the food is delicious. It's nice to go to a place on its own and not in the hustle and bustle of a city centre. It's nice and quiet. Great place

From entering the Restaurant to leaving we were treated with courtesy and warmth. I would have no hesitation in recommending this eating establishment. Fantastic South African food from one of their own. Lovely setting on the water front watching the boats go by as you tuck into the marvellous menu. Will definitely go back for more!

We tried this place following purchasing a Groupon voucher. The voucher entitled us to a sharing platter to start (it has prawn cocktail, meatball, stuffed mushroom, goat cheese tart and alligator) and a selection of dishes for main course (a taster of game meats, curry, stew, a meat/rice dish and separate plain rice) then a sharing dessert of two different...
