“Gem of Potchefstroom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

The quality of food has always been of a high standard and this tranquil location and fantastic low -key vibe of the restaurant is enough to destress the most past-paced professional or highly strung student. The changes to the menu and improvement of service are much appreciated!

“Slow service counters great food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Very cool place, just extremely slow service. Many people still complain about this (I haven't been back since people keep talking about the slow service..) Cocktails and food are very good and tasteful and the location is ideal. Would just sharpen up on the service!

I agree and do apologize. In order to better our service, we have consulted (and will do so on an ongoing basis) with an executive chef and have made a few changes (more waiters, new menu etc.). Hopefully in future you will hear better things from your friends that do visit us.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Lovely setting, wide variety of drinks and food that offers value for money (except the lamb burgers). Ideal place to relax, watch the sunset and have a drink. Highly recommended.
