“Mediocre”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

There was not a lot of variety on the menu. There are a lot of salads. Overall not the best meal. Service was slow.

“We all loved it”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

The welcome we received on our arrival was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble which gave us all a warm fuzzy feeling. It was a lovely sunny day so we chose to sit outside which was very pleasant . Our waiter Lucus was attentive and efficient and helped us to select excellent wines to go with the food which was 'out of this world'. Great selection of dishes to choose from. We would recommend the pork belly (really crispy and in the most delicious sauce). Our son was delighted with the Bosman Charcuterie with four chilled aged brandies. What a way to start a great meal! Thank you and well done. We will most certainly return.

“Excellent all round...”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

Excellent food, great service - nothing was too much trouble, including assistance with parking for guest in wheelchair - and definitely a place to visit. Accommodating, efficient and friendly staff and fantastic food at reasonable prices in pleasant surroundings. This was a first class start to our stay in Cape Town and no doubt that we will be back next time we're in town...

“Tasty Italian, lovely ambience”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

This cosy restaurant is perfect for a rainy day lunch with its burning fire and welcoming interior. A good selection of starters and mains including fish, meat and pasta and changing daily specials. There's also a cosy smoking bar. Or if the sun's shining you can dine on their large terrace looking up at Table Mountain.
