“Best ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Chantall Dartnell is a food magician, so far our best food experience ever. Different tastes in perfect harmony. Moroccan decor with class and style.

“Eclectic Food and Venue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

Located in what can best be described as a cross between a castle and something else, I'm not quite sure what, this is quite an experience and one we were happy to have undertaken, but also a place we wouldn't rush back to. Whilst the initial impressions on arrival were positive, things went down hill after the chef, Chantelle, explained the menu. Service was slow, people didn't remember things that were requested, but in the most the food, although as mentioned eclectic, tasted good. For us the whole experience wasn't real value.

“Out of this world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

We were treated to lunch at this outstanding restaurant, yesterday. Germaine, the sommelier took us into his cellar, and we immediately saw his passion and knowledge for wine and champagne. Our lunch took place in a private room, and we were looked after by pleasant, friendly but discreet staff. The food, in my opinion, knocked spots off any of the meals I have had in Michelin Star restaurants I have eaten in Burgundy, France. Highly recommend this fabulous restaurant.

“Food like no other.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

Chantell Dartnell is one of best chefs in SA in my opinion. Even traveling extensively abroad I still have to find another chef with her attention to detail and her originality( in plating and taste) . We attented a champagne tasting here last night( hosted by their French sommelier) and the feast served to us afterwards was absolutely extraordinary. She is a culinary genius!
