“Wonderful food in the Capeland's”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Went after hearing the story of how he started after being raised as a poor kid from the area, worked in a local Resturant with his mom, once in the kitchen found to have talent. Now one of the bigger names in South Africa. No mistake here as the food was fabulous.
We had filet with bone marrow crust, king fish filet, lamb chops, and duck. All with wonderful glazes to compliment the dishes. Appetizers included tempura shrimp with a 1964 sauce with enough spice to lighten up your taste buds and tomato soup with coconut sorbet to help calm the fire. Dessert was sinful with Malva cake and ice cream or bananas and pea nut butter ice cream. All with a wonderful wine list to boot

“Great food”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Awesome food and great atmosphere in a town where some of the better restaurants are somewhat pretentious.

“Dissapointing”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Overall we had a bad experience. Not what we were expecting. We were given an awful table, then moved to a wobbly table. Although the waitress meant well she did not know her stuff and sadly the service was really poor. The food was alright, but in general our experience was poor. We certainly won't be going back. :-(

“A must try out”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

As this restaurant is very popular it is essential that you book in advance especially over weekends. We found the parking at the back of the restaurant very convenient as parking in the front is limited given that it is the main street of this town.

The different food combinations was amazing and very original. Against one of the walls the many awards which Reuben has won is displayed.

We had a very enjoyable experience.
