I had lunch here with my elderly parents while I was visiting them in South Africa. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and it was a very pleasant restaurant with a casual feel.

We have dined here several times over the years and think it is living on its reputation rather than present qualities. Three of us paid over £60 each for two courses and two bottles of lower priced wines. Our main courses were Kingclip fish which...More

Thank you for your negative comment but I think you forgot what you ate and drank and are exaggerating on the price paid. All had starters, the main course was a kingklip and langoustine combo ( langoustines ARE the most expensive shellfish available ) and...More

I'm sitting at a fine dining restaurant right now comparing the wine list to the extremely overpriced wines of Ile Maurice to a reserve menu . The meals were all over priced and not great. They were fine. I would have expected to pay 1/3...More
