“Very Quiet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

I am always amazed about how quiet this place is. The location is excellent and I also love the decor on the terrace.

We were the only ones for lunch and the staff seemed a bit surprised to see us. We ordered a couple of pizzas and they took a long time, it seems like they had to fire up the pizza oven as it was not already lit. Pizzas were fine if a little expensive compared to other local restaurants.

They do need to step there game up in order to fulfill their potential.

“Great chill atmosphere but not do great food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Love going here for a drink as the lawn and open restaurant are really relaxed and beautiful. The plants, the lighting, the decor, the music all make this a very chill place in the evening. But, he food is not great and you don't get much for your money. Pizza is better valu than the pasta.

“Pizzas? Really?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Pizzas though made from the clay oven - was badly prepared. Not enough tomato paste and cheese was like a tree in the kalahari

“great hideout”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Sorry you were disappointed. What went wrong?it was too chilly at night. maybe do some of those lamps that warm people at night. the waiters did not give individualized attention so we had to keep calling them.the food portions were diminutive for the price so one feels like they didnt get enough for what they paid. i however recommended it to a friend and she still complained of hte cold garden and tiny food portions

“Come sample wine here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

A place where you can sample different types of splendid wine, enjoy good food and a great ambiance. The place is great but it would help if the service was a bit faster.
