“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We enjoyed our meal here and the ambience is good.It's a pity they dont do as many places do in SA and serve more wines, including bubbles ,by the glass as we often have different tastes and it's good for us.

The food was well presented and mostly good but the coriander encrusted fillet wasn't to our taste nor were the preserved figs served with it,however the fishcakes were excellent..A reasonable experience overall.
