“Laid back”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

A quiet place not far from Yaya centre, easily accessible. I'd say it's a good place for a maximum of two hour drink when you want an easy, quiet conversation. The atmosphere is quite beautiful with nice background music. Service is not that great though, we had to keep looking out for the waiter, and the food takes a while to come. The food is average at best, however the cocktails were not too shabby. It closes at around 11pm or so, so plan to dine and leave early.

“Decent place. Avg food but good ice creams”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Nice place near yaya centre. Their food is average but the ice cream or rather desserts are pretty good. The only good thing other than desserts is that the place is very cosy and you can get parking easily.

“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
