It is cool quiet place to have a dinner. The meat and chicken was great. The service is good could be better. The garden salad had alot of olive oil though. A bit costly though average 50k meal and drink. Could definately visit again.

Very good service. We both had a T-bone steak that was very tender and cooked perfectly to our preferences. Pork belly and kudu cubes as starters was also very nice. The drinks we had was well prepared. Can definitely recommend.
