“They don't really live up to their promisse”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

Went there two times only, for the "special" prawns dish. The prawns are OK but the service and atmosphere leave a lot to desire. There is no willingness to make the customer welcome, the waiters only want to "get rid" of you... And the number of prawns on the "special" has decreased while the price went up... Not worth going.

“Lots of character, intimate, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Me and my Mom was there for Mother's day this year. The food was of the highest quality, and the attention to detail superb.
Great spot for a lazy summer lunch, with nice views overlooking the garden.

“Lovely little restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

This restaurant is located well off the beaten track on a plot east of Pretoria. The interior is quaint, warm and cosy and the food is unique and delicious. One of my favourites!
