“steak is great but make sure you try...”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Everyone has been talking about the steak and yes it is really good. But this place also has very good appetizers such as the black mushrooms, the halloumi and yes the grilled calamari. Go there have great food and wine, then walk next door to check the neighbour bar Katzy's for live music and great atmosphere.

“Great.”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Excellent meat. Average service. The service really needs to improve and the waiters need to be educated. The service from the managers though is good. Nice venue, nice atmosphere, silly opening hours. Do visit!

“Incredible Service and Food”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

The food served at this establishment is absaloutely outstanding and to compiment the food the service is exceptional. How wonderful to also be able to get special South African delicaciies such as Boerewors, which is delicious, although I wished the portion was larger.
Vegetables were beautifully prepared and fresh bread was served that was so fresh and hot, straight out of the oven.
There is a huge assortment of food on the menu, prawns, steak fish etc.
I would highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to going back there soon.

“An enjoyable family outing”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We were a family party of seven. Reception by host Perry was friendly. Decor and table settings were elegant. Food was excellent without exception, Service by waiter Ben was excellent and waiting time between courses was minimal. Prices were reasonable and good value. I highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely return.
