“A work of love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

This little gem is well worth a visit if you enjoy places built on passion. The food was quite excellent, particularly the dessert, a delicious Malva pudding with Amarula. The decor is lovely and the service was very friendly. Will definitely visit again, particularly in the summer for the barbecues.

“Excellent.”
5 of 5 stars 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.

“The best ostrich steak I have ever tried”
5 of 5 stars 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
