We have been visiting this restaurant for a few years and they have never let us down. The service has always been good; the staff professional and cheerful, and the menu interesting. While their food isn't necessary worthy of a top award, we have found all the meals to be well prepared and well presented. In a nutshell - very good food at reasonable prices.
Their pricing is fair and the portions are more than adequate. The range of wines is extensive, enough anyway to suit all palates and all wallets. We do recommend that you book, the restaurant is quite popular.

Nice little restuarant in the heart of George with great staff. A must is the Bistecca Marsala there, I always have that. Wine list is also good and it's a nice chilled atmosphere. Have to book on weekends. Great place for a romantic date.

In a country where average service is considered exceptional, and mediocrity is frequently praised, La Capannina is a true jewel! The young waitron was knowledgeable about the wines and for only the second time in my life was I constrained to return a bottle of wine as it was not as good as it should be. The young lady serving us immediately offered to replace the wine and suggested something else which turned out to be a great selection. The meal was fantastic, enhanced as it was by the brilliant South African wine. Oh, and the ostrich fillet is simply gastronomically the best.
