“Excellent Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

The service was good. There is no physical menu and the waiter had to repeat the choices a few times before we could decide. The restaurant is cosy with a warm fire in winter. The food is well prepared with perfect flavours. I can recommend for the food connoisseurs.

Although on the expensive side, it was a wonderful evening. The service was excellent, the waiters friendly and professional. The food was excellent and presented beautifully. Well worth it.

“Best in Pretoria- possibly S. Africa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

After trying one after another of those up-market shopping mall restaurants, we finally made our way here. The service was stellar -truly professional, friendly, and not insanely subservient, like too many places here. The food was excellent - great fresh King prawns from Mozambique, excellent mussel appetizer with an Indonesian flair. My wife wasn't too thrilled with the veal, so we ordered another plate of prawns. Deserts were excellent. Atmosphere elegant, natural fire burning. Best meal we've had in a month of traveling - I would go back in a heart beat!

“Fun Expierence”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

No menus, Your options are described by the owner in a heavy french accent, I listen for words I know and then order that. It of course is never what I would expect and looks like something on the food channel, fancy. Worth the occasion visit, bit pricey otherwise.
