We popped in for a one course meal, and glass of wine, and had a delicious couple of steaks, one beef fillet,one kudu. Generous measure of wine, just what was needed. Friendly service.

“New owners are continuing the High Standards of this Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

I have reviewed the Mystic Tin previously and at that time it was amazing, so, when I arrived in Montagu again for a couple of weeks I was keen to see and taste the presentations of the new owners, Kikki and Theo.
Well guys, it's pretty dam good !! The changed menu was a challenge I enjoyed, literally from the top line to the bottom line. I got through them all and enjoyed every plate.
Thank you for your hospitality and super service and of course for your lovely food. As other recent reviews have noted it's best to make a reservation and, as the setting is wonderfully intimate you are assured of good and personal service.
At the moment there are no C/Card facilities but if you are short of cash there is an ATM at the Standard Bank less than 100m from the Restaurant, so no excuses.... Go and Enjoy, I did and I will be back again soon.

“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

We stayed in Montagu for 2 nights and ate here on both evenings, The restaurant is quite small and offers delicious food, nice music, very friendly staff and is excellent value. No credit card facility as yet. Also offers B & B which in October was R294 per person. If the accommodation is of the same standard as the food it's to be recommended. Well done Kiki!

“Good place to eat in Montagu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

An excellent evening meal here. Menu is smaller than some but appealing & carefully chosen and every meal is well prepared and delicious. There are only a few tables and therefore the service is personal and superb. Need to reserve a table. No credit card facility as yet, but approx £16ph.
