“A work of love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

This little gem is well worth a visit if you enjoy places built on passion. The food was quite excellent, particularly the dessert, a delicious Malva pudding with Amarula. The decor is lovely and the service was very friendly. Will definitely visit again, particularly in the summer for the barbecues.

“Excellent.”

Very friendly staff and helpful staff. The portions are generous and absolutely delicious. We've been here a couple of times now and it has become one of our top #3 resturants in Amsterdam.

Great service, great atmosphere and most important of all, awesome food! We have tried the menu 4 times and not disappointed one time and just love the South African cuisine.

“The best ostrich steak I have ever tried”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

Great host, great South African food and overall price quality is good. It is a bit hidden and hard to find.
The restaurant is near the Pijp and is very exotic looking...liked it a lot..the bread is really good and the overall food quality is great
