Good ambience, lovely staff and great food. Pity about the wine prices. Not one table had ordered a bottle of wine and when I saw the pricesI could see why .Its so easy in SA to include a few mid price but god wines.

We ate early at 6.30pm but even at this time service was dreadfully slow. When our food eventually arrived (fillet steaks) it was of a high standard. We left people in the restaurant still waiting for their starters almost an hour after ordering.
