A menu not seen in every restaurant. Lovely variety of game meat to choose from. Prepared by a world class chef. Dinner here is more than an option.

went here for dinner when in heramnus. the waiter was constantly fussing about...trying to make out what a wonderful experience we were having in the place.it was ok. the food was reasonable...but quite expensive compared with other better meals while we were in s Africa.we had ostrich steaks..which were tasty.
but couldn't stand the fussing about that accompanied the meal. don't try and make out its a gastronomic experience because it isn't. its ok that's all.

We were recommended this restaurant by the owner of Auberge Provence where we stayed. It was quite noisy as there was an enormous table of about 24 people. However the waiter was very upfront about this possibly having impact on speed of serving us but in the end it was fine. The food was excellent and the wine recommendations good. Laid back but attentive waiter, a friendly owner-chef who came to say goodbye to us.

What lured us was a friend raving about Shane's chocolate terine. What had us going back the next night was the wonderful atmosphere, the amazing staff and, to date, the best desert we've ever had.

Shane's grasp of flavour combinations makes for an unforgetable dining experience.
