“Bad, bad, bad”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2010

Out of the four main courses that we had ordered, we returned the chicken, the pasta and the veal almost untouched because they were either over peppered, non-tasteful or made with no love.

The waiter who wasn't bad until that point made the mistake to not even bother to ask. This is not worth at all the five-star atmosphere that the place wants to be.

At least the wine was good - a banker in South Africa.

“Worst in PE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2010

We went here on my birthday and had the worst experience ever. The food was definitely not up to standard - badly presented and tasteless. The worst was that some of the hotel guests came dining with the bathrobes on. I would expect management to ask them to dress properly before entering the restaurant. This was the first and last time I will visit this restaurant. The wine was extremely expensive and the corkage per bottle is R85.

“Noisy and a huge disapointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2009

The night started badly when we arrived (first to arrive) and were shown to our seat. We'd booked a table and I don't think many people had. We requested a different table and were told this wasn't possible. We were sure it was, but the manager didn't seem very co-operative at all. Then the band started playing and it totally ruined everything. The manager conceded that the band were too noisy but wouldn't move us away. The restaurant had the potential to be good, but it was overpriced and poorly run.
