We came to this restaurant after reading so many T.A reviews. It was an excellent decision as the food and the service were astonishing. Amazing hospitality. Great wine as well. Prices are a bit high but it's well worth it. We hope to be back soon.

Did not have very high expectations and was very pleasantly surprised by amazing food, great wine, excellent service and very cosy ambiance. One of the best restaurants we visited in the Garden Route. Not to be missed!
