A great place to have a steak and a nice glass of wine. Great atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and took care of our big group of 14. They also serve delicious desserts.

“Good place for a honesty hearty”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Consistently good without being brilliant is probably not bad? Steaks,as always, were great and various options and sizes to choose from. Even the Salmon received positive feedback. Excellent selection of local wines combined with cosy atmosphere.

Service sometimes lacking and only reason for it not receiving a score of excellent.

“Home Time”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

My South African born wife and I visit South Africa every February and we always have lunch here on our way to the airport to catch our flight back to London.
The food is always superb and the staff unfailingly attentive and friendly.

“Dated and Disapointing”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Service was friendly but slow and the long wait was not worth it. One of us had the burger which was very good but everything else was disappointing. Ok price wise but there are much better options in the area.

“very good experience overall”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We had a Sunday lunch there; it was full house. The restaurant is situated amongst beautiful vineyards. For starters I had 6 oysters which the oysters were a little on the small side; they call it West Coast oysters but they look "farmed" in my humble opinion. But an oyster is still an oyster, even on a bad day, still lovely.

My one daughter's hake was not too nice but someone else in our party enjoyed their version of the hake dish. The other daughter's calamari was also not very edible.

Three of the adults had steaks which was superbly done and tender. I had a sirlion steak with rich red wine bordelaise sauce with marrow which was absolutely delicious. They make some of the best french fries around.

The restaurant is set in an old building with lovely fireplace and a lot of character.
They serve (amongst others) local wine (Ken Forrester) which is exemplary.

Overall, we had a good time there.
