“Wonderful food and view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

I've been there in February 2013 to dinner. It was an excellent choice, considering all the options around. I've asked for a "Giant Grilled Mixed Venison Skewer", for a taste of exotic meat from Africa, and I loved it!

I recommend to everyone that want to have a good and exotic taste of Africa, with a good view and excelent service.

“Easy food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Good quality food at a very good price. We had to sit inside as it was too windy outside which wasn't a problem. The staff were very helpful and friendly ;)

“Reasonable steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

As far as red meat goes, this was fairly good. We had a lunchtime meal where service was quite busy, even so the staff did manage to change our table as we wanted out of the sun for our daughter. The food did take quite a time to come, but it was a busy time
