I have spent 9 months living and working in the western cape and had many occasions to dine here and this is my favourite place. Very quirky and cool venue, with excellent food, attentive hospitable and friendly staff. Carl the host does provide a very warm welcome and the waitresses are amongst the most attractive in the Cape.
Booking is always advisable, but a sign does proclaim that if you are a fast eater and a big tipper you might get a table at short notice.
The eating area is outdoors, enclosed at the rear of the building and on first appearance it could be classed a ramshackle, but I along with others who visited believe it is really funky and well put together. The roof is a "bedouin" tent . There are fire pits and braziers strategically placed which, together with the chilled tunes add to the ambience.
I have eaten here many times and can recommend everything that I had on the menus available, but they do change the content quite often. Specifically, for starters I enjoyed; the Stovie fishcakes or the Sharing Platter (the terrine is fabulous). Mains; The Cob, Hake or the Steak are particular favourites for me. I also had a go at a few of the white wines and rated the Rienke [sp] Organic wine as a particular good one to try.
I do hope I get chance to visit this place again.
