We went there with the family and the food and service were just great. Would recommend to reserve because on both nights we went the place was fully booked.

Abe serves you and visits each table. His meticulous care of his customers is amply demonstrated interpersonally and his cuisine. The selection of wines is sufficient and the atmosphere is both warming and thoroughly South African.

The food is delicious and the portions hearty. We both had the spaghetti bolognese; the wife's vegetarian, mine beef. The restaurant was quite busy and there was only one waitress in addition to the owner running around, which resulted in some delays.
