I find this resturant very noisy and for what you get the food is very overpriced but delicious. It is a fun place for the young noisy youth to go and party.

Visited the restaurant during my visit to PE again and wasn't disappointed. The venue is deceiving as the place is rather simple but the food excellent. A limited menu with good tasting food.
Will visit again when in PE

This "dive" place is in a sketchy neighborhood (but we felt reasonably safe parking our car outside) with a cult following. We had prawns and ribs, and brought our own wine. The food was very good. For "what it was" though, it seemed expensive. I know prawns are expensive, but 500 Rand for 2 with one course and BYOB in a dive restaurant didn't seem like a great deal (also hard to tell if we were charged correctly, as we didn't receive an itemized bill). At that price, I might prefer "fine dining."

This is a no-frills joint where the focus is on the food. You will have to bring your own atmosphere which most people do.

The prawn is flown in fresh fro Mozambique everyday. The ribs and chorizo are best in town. Unfortunately did not have the space for the chicken.

This is a true treasure. I was blown away by this simple but brilliant concept. The food was totally out of this world. The word authentic comes to mind. The ambiance was fantastic. Good, no excellent food in a plain original unpretentious setting. Completely fantastic.
