“Good”
Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

Nice atmosphere , our food was very good, wine list very small....
Group of 10 was to much for the waiter, it took forever to get the starters and even the drinks. Beeping involved into business talk , the waiter missed out to ask me for a starter and I only realized when the food of some people arrived , that I was not ask for the order.....
Not cheap so, but would return....

“Laid back Class”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

We found ourselves in Bloemfontein looking for something a little bit classy and not a chain restaurant.
We saw a chalk board advertising mezze so we decide to try it. The restaurant has a lovely position, on the first floor with indoor and outdoor seating, overlooking the lake. We sat outdoors. The waiting staff was attentive and well trained. The wine list came as a big surprise. It was excellent with a selection of premium wines at great prices.
We started with a selection of Mezze. From the vast selection we had prawns, mini kebabs, flatbread, hummus, and olives,all of which was delicious.
Live piano music tinkled in the background.
The selection of mains covered pizza, pasta, meat, fish and chicken. So once again a good choice. The calamari was tender and juicy. The pasta perfectly cooked.
All in all it was a very pleasant experience. Including a large tip the bill came to R 300 which I thought was incredible value.
