Description
Veterans to the Somerset West gourmet scene Chef Anton and his partner Ed, have changed focus from the casual fine dining environment they became known for and have embarked on offering SERVICE and GOOD FOOD in a much more relaxed style of establishment, offering an all day bistro style menu, using fresh seasonal produce and all prepared by Chef Anton's own hand. Whether you dine in the inside space or in the secluded covered courtyard garden you are sure to enjoy all that Chef Anton prepares, whilst host Ed and his team are always on hand to offer you the best dining experience in Somerset West.....And a smile :-).
