Truly the best meal I have had in Cape Town in years. Perfect setting for a special occasion. Order all 3 courses as the portions are small but the combinations are clever and well crafted. Kudos to the chef.

The standard of service there is so good that I have no doubt that they would cater for gluten free diets. Can I suggest that you contact them directly?
