“wow what a find!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

I can't belive this was my first visit. We went to a large birthday lunch on a Saturday afternoon, service was great, food was fantastic and best of all they had a special on that meant you had a starter and a main for R100. I will defintely be spending more time there in future.

“My favourite restaurant for good unpretentious food”
Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

You can never go wrong with this restaurant in my opinion. Whether it is for a casual meal with a friend, a romantic dinner date, a girls night out dinner, eating solo - this place can make all of these different moments really great. The food is not disappointing in fact I am always guaranteed to have a good meal there because I know for sure the food will taste absolutely amazing. In summer it is lovely to sit outside where you still have shade on top of your head but are so close to the road that it feels like a bistro. In winter they have heaters outside and a plastic shield to protect you from the wind. They have great tapas as well which are nicely portioned and have specials which include a starter and a main for a fixed price. The price you pay is soooo good value for money, the quality of the food is really top class and service is also great. They have a very good wine selection and do not do cocktails. They are kind of posh without being pretentious so in a way they are classy as well as casual - paradoxal I know... But this is a place where you can actually go glammed up or dressed down (casual top and jeans, flat shoes). I love the wooden tables, flickering candles and their chalkboard menus.

“Superb food, great atmosphere - you have to book”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

This is an excellent restaurant with inventive and interesting food - the best we had anywhere in South Africa (and standards were high). And good value too. It is always fully booked so you do have to book a table in advance.

“Good value for money”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Great atmosphere, a huge choice of foods on the menu. Generally speaking all I have eaten there was good and the staff very pleasant. It offers a very warm yet relaxed atmosphere. This place offers "specials", that means you get 2 or 3 dishes at a special price which is really worth it for "big appetites". It is consistently a very pleasant experience.
