A delicious meal cooked and served by Denise. The bobotie and slowroasted lamb were superb. Bring your own wine no corkage. A cozy little place with outside seating on the stoep. Highly recommended - very reasonable prices

It's a quaint little place which does not take credit cards and you bring your own alcohol, but we knew that before we went. The menu is the same every night and consists of traditional home-made food. We had bobotie and some chicken. The owners...More
