My saddle of lamb came with a huge amount of fat that had not been browned and made crisp - most unappetizing. Prices are highly inflated for the quality and amount of food that you receive. Doubt that I want to return there.

The position is not picturesque but the steaks are great. Joop can be seen cooking behind the grill - serving his steaks in gleaming copper saucepans. We don't look at the menu - we just order the pepper steak. Friends order the ribs every time. Don't bother with the salads.

Meat meat a man must eat! We had a lovely evening and had steaks grilled to perfection!

Joops makes a great steak, no doubts about it, but for the price I'd expect to get half a cow. I am very disappointed with the paltry portion sizes. In fact, the portions are so paltry you'd be forgiven for thinking you were eating chicken. The meat melts in your mouth but what's the point if it only lasts three bites ... that is, unless you're prepared to break the bank.

Nice and close to our Guesthouse, The Heron in a safe neighbourhood. Good selection of wines and great ambience.
