Amazing food, incredible service, typical saffa living. Made me homesick and loved it at the same time. I came with two Norwegians who ended in meat sweats and 'lekker duk'. Baie Dankie!!

Description
Located on Morrison street this small restaurant has plenty to offer. Great food and a relax atmosphere all adds to this little gem in the heart of the city. 2 min walk away from the Usher Hall and a 5 minute walk to the famous Grassmarket area of the city
