The restaurant has an absolutely fantastic ambience. Very friendly welcome. We were looking forward to a fabulous evening out. From then on, every time we wanted something, we had to look for service - bearing in mind the restaurant had only about 6 tables occupied, so they were not at all busy. The food was a real disappointment overall -... More

Visiting this reserve is like visiting a HUGE zoo. It is almost in a city yet have just about all the animsls one would see in a game reserve/park. I drive past them every day to work as well and love seeing the animal right next to the fence.

This is an upper class establishment - fine dining. You know it is a good restaurant if a lot of local italians go there. The service was very good and the food well prepared, tasty and well presented. Whilst it is a bit more expensive the portions sizes are large and you don't go home hungry.

This was a neighborhood restaurant near the university. We had the risotto with prawn (a little salty, but good), lamb fusilli, and the burrata. All were worth ordering. Main course and a glass of wine for three came to about R600, which I thought was reasonable for the setting, service and food quality. My only complaint was that the best... More

The service was absolutely fantastic and Tony, the owner, made sure that we were briefed on the evening's specials on the menu. I chose the penne with tuna and my husband the lamb rump. It was absolutely delicious. The lemon mascarpone tartlet with lemon sorbet rounded off the meal very nicely.

I was very disappointed when we went there last week. They are just down the road from me and seen they are a top restaurant on some websites . But the seafood gnocchi I had, was INEDIBLE!! I could not eat my food and left the restaurant hungry (after a R1300 bill for two, shocking!). My husband had a R350... More

Nice restaurant with good selection of food. Was not very happy with ambiance, but food made up for the good night out. The Antipasto Capeech was "out of this world" though
