This wonderful restaurant in Seapoint by the Prominade is a must go restaurant for anyone visiting Capetown. We came with a party of 6 (we suggest making reservations as the place gets full) and all had the tasters menu. This is chef's choice and is definitely the way to go for a fun and informative evening. We chose the option... More

Lovely cosy restaurant, with amazing food. Good selection of starters, mains and desert. Complimentary bread basket was a wonderful touch before the meal. Staff and waiters very well presented and very attentive.

Gorgeous little French restaurant in Seapoint. Love the cosy home atmosphere, fire burning in winter. Tasty food... Fine dining but yes tasty and appropriate portions. Lovely wine list to choose from and love the Ambiance. Perfect for a lovely romantic night out or for an intimate dinner with friends.

From the time you walk through the gays and see the beautiful building to the delicious food and exceptional service, this meal has surpassed as my #1 meal ever. Bold statement that is very much warranted. The tasting menu wows from the start, even the bread and butter were delicious. Truffle croquettes, tuna tartare and celeriac soup are just the... More

Their Autumn menu was very good, The 'snacks' were particularly amazing! We were not fans of the turnip spagetti, the texture was off-putting, and the carrot cake dessert was underwhelming. But as always, the service was attentive throughout, with smiles all round. A highly enjoyable night with overall great food. Can't wait for the winter menu :)
