We visited as a group of 10 and had selected the 8 course African tasting menu and wow what a treat. The food and service where excellent however the theatre and performance in the way they arrived and presented simply made this a very special event. Each course arrived with a story and served with a showcase of origins, and... More

We had a lovely meal here a few weeks ago. Service was far more relaxed than the night before when we'd eaten at Rust en Vrede in Stellenbosch while still being professional. Although there is no a la carte menu it was nice that there is at least one choice of meat or fish if you opt for the African... More

We had dinner here, made a reservation a couple of weeks before. The style of the restaurant is very modern, nice atmosphere. We had the spring menu and staff was very helpful in selecting the right courses for my pregnant wife. Even the canopies were especially prepared for her! Great job! Only reason not to give this the maximum rating... More

Felt the food was underwhelming, the trout was vertically raw and unpleasant, the main course and dessert were very good, but the two starter dishes felt like they were designed for a chef and not a diner! The staff seemed a little disinterested and the state of their uniforms was tatty. We've experienced better meals for half the price at... More

My husband and I enjoyed the African origins tasting menu and it did not disappoint! Every dish was impeccably prepared, wine pairings were perfect. Worth the drive from Cape Town!

A party of 6 we went for the 8 course offering one of which was the vegitarian option, with wine flight. It was all exceptional, the service, the theatre, originality and quality of food and as much information as you require. Service was attentive but not overbearing a gastronomic delight. We arrived just after 6 pm and left at 10.30... More

Due to the fact that this restaurant is acclaimed as one of the best in SA, I expected something great. The staff was very friendly and funny, but the food was a disappointment. I had the five course menu with wine pairing. The wine selection was a joke, as I received three times an unpleasant pinot noir or grenache. This... More

My husband and I dined here on the second night of our five night stay in Cape Town and it was by far our best meal of the holiday and one of the best meals we have ever eaten. We chose the set menu and matching wines and there were no courses that disappointed! The 4 degrees of cheese was... More

I would give it 4.5 stars. Delicious food in a beautiful restaurant. Great wine list and very good options by the glass. The strict table timing did not make sense

Great food, great pairings, delightful staff. We enjoyed this very much as an entertaining evening out in a superb location with absolutely delicious food. Nothing formal about the setting, but very friendly and open. Excellent wine/food combinations, would highly recommend spending dinner here.
