Had a good breakfast. The coffee was good as was the Highlander breakfast - bacon, sausage, fried eggs on toast. My son enjoyed the Florentine and asked for the kippers on the side which was respected.

My friends and I went to Highlander Bistro before heading home around 9.30 am. We all wanted the pot pie which is not part of the breakfast menu. The staff were very accommodating and we left Clarens with our bellies full and smiles on our faces. Definitely worth a visit.

Steak made to perfection. Oxtail tender, mash good. Hearty meal and warm atmosphere. Book a table or you will be disappointed on a week-end. Pizza also a good choice.

Have to try their pizza, very good and still oven-baked. Even the atmosphere is nice with low light and candles. Very informal place with delicious food!
