“Very good food, but service average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

We had a private room (??) booked for 11, but it ended up being a large table in the foyer right on top of the pianist, who managed to almost drown out all conversation when he was playing. Attentiveness was mixed given the restaurant was not that full, but the food was excellent all round and agreed by all diners. Great wine list of SA's best, but Champagne / Sparkling Wine list very small.

“Firm favourite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a firm favourite of ours - the food is excellent, always so fresh and well presented as well as good value for money. The service is good and the ambiance so relaxed and pleasant with the pianist playing softly in the background.

“classy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Crisp and clean, good service and was perfect for our staff lunch. The resturant layout is spacious and was ideal for our party in that we had privacy in the booth chosen. Food was excellent.

“Consistency defined”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

The menu is tried and tested. Try their German specialities, like Fritattensuppe,Jaegerschnitzel or Zuricher Geschnetzeltes. Or Avocado Ritz and the fresh linefish of the day.
The ambience is reserved, yet jovial. Even more so when the piano is playing!
The service is attentive, but not overly so.
This has been, and hands-down remains, the Number One restaurant in PE!
