This is an outstanding restaurant. Service was lovely, not rushed. Our waiter was extremely helpful. Before we even started, we were served a special selection from the chef - a surprise and very tasty. The south African wine list was quite extensive and many were very affordable. Pepper Pot was our choice. We began with a cheese board - an appetizer that is so rarely served but which is so wonderful when it is. 4 cheeses with extras - very much enjoyed. All the entrees looked tasty. We had monkfish, duck, and chicken. All were very much enjoyed with the duck possibly leading the race. The children's menu was fine was as well. Dessert was very enjoyable as well. Let me tell you - Jiko makes one of the best cups of cappucinno ever!
We did not worry about the dress code - we dressed nicely but not elaborately and that was just fine. Not stuffy, just nice. We count this as one of our premier dining experiences on our trip and we will most definitely make eating here a tradition.
