The service was unhurried . We had time to settle from the first course before the next came .The food was great . Plenty on the menu... More

We decided to have a meal with a difference on an evening out with friends and we were not disappointed. We were given loads of time to review the menu & the staff (some of whom are South African) are more than helpful in explaining what the dishes are, what they contain & assist with descibing the tastes of the...

What a surprise this place is! Hidden away in a backwater - almost literally, as it is on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal in Ellesmere Port, a place not noted for sophistication. My first thought was it has to be good to survive here. Why would people come out of their way otherwise? True to these thoughts, it... More

Located alongside the entrance to the Manchester Ship canal and adjacent to the National Waterways Museum this restaurant has a menu with a difference. It offers a selection of dishes made from South African game along with those more traditionally UK. We were offered dishes with crocodile, ostrich, Kudu and the like. We all tried either starters or mains from... More

I strongly recommend this restaurant for the excellent food presented but also for their HIGHLY dedicated staff. I honestly was impressed with their staff who give more than their 100% ( if that were possible) to ensure that your experience is ever so special. Kep up your excellent effort !!!

booked for myself, my wife and 3 children about a week ahead. We received a call to confirm our booking earlier on the day of arrival. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the staff are all very friendly. The children had a go at playing the bongo drums which they all enjoyed. The food was all excellent quality with good... More

Sitting looking at the authentic decor, smelling and tasting South African food, and with a bottle of Savannah Dry, I kept forgetting I wasn't back home. The service is authentic South African too, and that means cheerful, willing, and good-humoured, and the drinks list contains many SA favourites. Finishing off with a Dom Pedro is a must, and if you... More
