We arrived in Cape and, on our first night we needed to find a place to eat. We were walking up the street and the proprietor invited us in...There were other people seated so we thought we would take the risk. The menu is small but is definitely African. I had the beef stew with "Pap", etc...Absolutely delicious! The folks I was with had a Fish dish...Tilapia, I believe and they loved it! We remembered the place and made sure we returned at the end of our Capetown adventure for our last dinner in beautiful South Africa....I had the Shank this time...Delicious!! The staff is friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed and the food is great and priced right...Enjoy!

The menu had many local african dishes! The manager was eager to help us understand some of the unfamiliar local dishes. We would come back here.
