Reviewed November 17, 2012

Very friendly staff and helpful staff. The portions are generous and absolutely delicious. We've been here a couple of times now and it has become one of our top #3 resturants in Amsterdam.

Great service, great atmosphere and most important of all, awesome food! We have tried the menu 4 times and not disappointed one time and just love the South African cuisine.

“The best ostrich steak I have ever tried”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

Great host, great South African food and overall price quality is good. It is a bit hidden and hard to find.
The restaurant is near the Pijp and is very exotic looking...liked it a lot..the bread is really good and the overall food quality is great

“Great food, slightly odd service”
Reviewed April 26, 2011

Small restaurant with a really lovely outdoor seating area. Slightly rough around the edges presentation-wise but really cozy.

Food was great, hearty and fresh, but we were a bit taken aback by the waiter. We mistakenly ordered a meat dish although we're both vegetarians, when we discovered this we very politely said we'd pay for it and even apologised for the fact that we wouldn't eat it because it felt like a waste not to. The waiter then appeared a bit offended and proceeded to try and convince us to eat it anyway. Strange, but the veggie options were great and we don't regret going there.
