The menu is limited and service is good but the waiters keep changing all the time during your meal which was kind of annoying. It took quite a while to get our food but if you go with good company, the quality of the food is worth the wait. I liked the slight twist on traditional dishes and the odd pairings. Reservations a must.

We stopped over here for a quick lunch when passing through Stellenbosch. We helped ourselves to a table as there wasn't anyone waiting to receive guests and had to find a waiter to help us, but the atmosphere and food was great at this place. It's location sets it well within what seems to be quite a trendy but still relaxed street. We really enjoyed the meal and especially the presentation thereof.

beautifully presented, and excellently cooked, our food was well matched with wine selections as recommended. a good range of food choices offered, while the 'students' serving and cooking were clearly very superior.

Had the pulled pork quesadilla. Very well executed. Nice furnishings and good service.

The restaurant is run by the students of the culinary institute @ Stellenbosch.

Went for dinner. Really good experience. Run by students who are training to be chefs but they all have to work front of house as well to get the customer experience. Really great food produced by the students in the kitchen and fantastic service by charming students out front. Leant more about local food and wine than anywhere else we have been. And excellent value for money. Don't miss it.
