“Looks are deceiving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

This little restaurant is lovely and possibly my favourite! The staff are great and the food is always really fresh and hot.
The chicken benechin in here is gorgeous. Julbrew is 35d a bottle ( I got mine from here for our room at the hotel as it was cheaper than the shop!).
Well worth a visit but don't leave it till the end of your stay, you'd regret it!

“local and nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We ate at this restaurant last year and were not dissapointed this year, the staff are very friendly and helpful, menu is small but all the food is cooked fresh, i had steak one night and chicken yassa the other, both were great, this is one of the cheaper places to eat in cape point but the standard is very good. My wife raved about her benechin and my daughter loved the carbonara,Also this was the cheapest place to buy beer to take out, cheaper than the shops by far

“Don't be put off by looks”

We were a bit dubious when we arrived but I have to say the food was lovely. Plenty of it, all cooked fresh & really cheap. A good evening.
