“My favourite - the Mossel Pot !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

The best "Mossel Pot" ever. I really like the delicate touch of garlic in the mossel pot. The balance is perfect. The flexibility of service is excellent. I can ask for what I want and I can get it. I don't have to choose. If I want a portion of rice as well as a portion of chips, it is fine ! If I ask for Horlics Milkshake, they add it to the menu. :-) What more can you ask for? The steak strips - soft as jelly! Thanks for your excellent service, Annetjie. Ernie and Suzette, you are the best! You believe in what you do.

Ek lewer kommentaar in Engels sodat die buitelanders ook van die lekker kan weet.

“Thai Curry to Die For”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

I was initially unsure of the curries "heat", but the waitress brought a taster. This was quickly guzzled. We joked with the waitress about uneven number of olives in the Greek salad, she brought another to even the amount! Excellent curry consisting of mussels, chicken and calamari. Very tasty. I would highly recommend this dish. Upon completion I asked for some bread to soak up the remaining sauce, another portion of rice was presented, on the house! The wine was also great, along with the atmosphere. Definitely a recommend!! Service par excellence!

“Well worth the visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

We ate a lovely meal here last Saturday. The restaurant was busy and the atmosphere was great. Service was excellent. There was a private party being catered for in their downstairs venue and the kitchen and waiters were busy dealing with it. This didn't detract from the service and food quality that we enjoyed. The view is also great early evening before the darkness settles in. This isn't our first visit having celebrated my mothers 80th birthday there 2 years ago. They did an excellent job then too. We'll be back.

The Mussels came in a thick over creamy not specific fasting sauce with 6 peaces of prefrozen small Mussels,the Kudu came
medium ordered overdry on the Table and where like chewing gum not too bite at all,with a tin most after water tasting too thick
sauce like the same too the Mussels.the Linefish where ok but
nothing great.

after talking too the Restaurant Manager i had still too pay for the Kudu (200 Rand) and she just told me that she will after Talk
