“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Amazing Prawns with Chocolate sauce, nice seafood platter, mojitos were a little weak. We went a couple of times and spent a wonderful time

“Lively atmosphere at dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

A great atmosphere and food was nice at very reasonable prices. Waiter was very polite and curtious. 1 thing was we wanted to eat outside as it was hot but it was sooo popular not a chance. Good beer service upstairs too

“Not great wished we had gone to Fynbos down the road”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Only in mossel bay for one night thankfully. Tried this place as we wanted a cocktail to relax after a long drive. It's rated 4th on trip advisor. The staff were friendly but forgot things when we asked for them.
They had no crushed ice so cocktails off the menu. We had Burritos. They were not Burritos. The tapas we ordered came fried! out of the same fryer as the potatos as all the food tasted the same...bland, we left it after a mouthful. This was not tapas.
Hate to write a negative review but if you like food avoid this place. O and top it off the toilets are disgraceful (maybe trying to give an authentic Havana backstreet eatery feel) no soap in the gents and my wife said the women's were as bad. Place to be avoided.

“Best place in Mossel Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Coming to Mossel Bay mostly because of this place. Excellent cuisine balanced with original design of the place. Every dish is worth of trying.

“Zane was great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We had a waiter called Zane on both nights we were there, he knew all the drinks, contents and alternatives, he was attentive and sweet! The cocktails were very good!
