1 excellent starter, 1 average. 2 very good mains (even if portion size was excessive).
Service was very good as was ambiance, well worth visiting.

“Thanks to tripadvisor, it gave us this lovely experience!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Being in Mosselbay and feeling like a nice restaurants where there is not only fish and chips on the menu or Seafood Platters, we stumbled across this Wonderful Restaurant, hidden away. When you walk in there is this Curio Shop and then you get to the restaurant: It’s candle lit, Professional waiters and not too busy and loud. I decided to order a beef stew and be different and I have never tasted better! Thumbs up for the chef and his steaks was also delicious, tasty and looked very presentable. This restaurant is a must try! Keep staying at the top of the list!

“Return trip - still good!”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

This visit to the restaurant was not our first, but it was for some our party (Belgium & Johannesburg visitors). We chose this restaurant for its consistently good food, in preparation, taste and presentation. Our chef did visit our table, ensuring that we were satisfied with the food, which we were, of course! I must mention that I tasted my husband's choice : Slow roasted Pork Belly. Wow, that will be mine for the next visit.

“Amazing”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Food, wine, and service was great. Chef came out and spoke to all the tables (although it was a rainy Wednesday so we were one of 4 tables occupied). I had the einsbein which was insanely good, husband had the fillet which was great as well.

“Fynbos”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Probably the best meal & dining experience I have had since moving to SA. The waiter was attentive and helpful, the Lamb shank was sublime.
