A nice change of pace from the local cuisine. We love Thai food and this restaurant brought out the best. Their speciality is fresh spices, grown and prepared on site. It is a bit pricy but below the wine country and Cape Town price for fine food. The proprietress was not grumpy but if she was going to be, then the wonderfully sweet waitress would have compensated. There were only 10 people this Saturday night. This is the looow season however.

This place is unique. We were greeted by the owner and sat in a cosy room with log fire and candles. Loved the gin and cocktail menu! Wonderful food, great service and ambience! Highly recommend for just all the little touches that most places don't bother with. Check out the sign on the kitchen door!

Reading most of the reviews posted about FireFly, well, you either love it or hate it..or have greater expectation than actual experience....
The food was fantastic, the service not so bad, I have to agree with previous comments regarding the owner... on overall, this was birthday party, and for that the courses were rushed, one after another, not much room for chatting, laughing and enjoying otherwise lovely evening in a very cosy dining room.

Intensive tastes, flavours from India, south African beef, home made roebus ice tea, flowers to decorate and the little interior make you feel like if you are in a movie from Fellini. Nice place to go with a unique touch.

The whole family (teenage sons included) was delighted by Firefly Eating House. As others have noted, it is a quirky place, but utterly charming. The restaurant layout provides quasi-private nooks and crannies to provide intimacy. The food is as unique as the setting.
