Very rustic and nothing fancy. The views and surroundings are amazing especially at twilight. Good food!

Having made a reservation for the Easter Saturday evening, when we arrived there was one seat too little. This was minor compared to the remainder of the evening. After having to search for a waitress to order drinks, one of our selected wines was not a available. After looking over the pricey menu we were ready to order. After we ordered the waitress came back to inform us there were no chips even though these were the side for just about all the dishes. The prawns, were also unavailable. We changed our orders and as we saw how this was panning out decided to go for the "safe" option of burgers. Once again the waitress left only to return to inform us that they only had 2 beef patties left! Once again, re-orded, no lamb patties, no fish patties, luckily still some chicken! When trying for a second round of drinks we discovered we had ordered the last bottle of the white wine previously, the last of the beer brand we wanted! Needless to say we did not have the courage to think of dessert. I do not think it is possible to be any worse.

I wanted to treat my partner to a special dinner and although I phoned to check whether it was necessary to book (I was told that it wasn't), when we arrived at about 20h15 we were told that the kitchen was closed! The waitress called the manager and they were able to accommodate us.

The service was prompt, although the wine we wanted wasn't available (and it was the house wine!), and the meal was quite delicious. We shared a starter portion of pelagic calamari from the Falklands which was ample for two. My partner had 500g rump steak which was cooked to perfection and I had the lemon prawn skewers, also cooked perfectly.

We did feel a bit uncomfortable once we'd eaten as obviously the staff were waiting to go home, but we left feeling comfortably full having enjoyed the eating experience. This was a Wednesday evening. The venue, as has been said previously, seemed a bit run down with the fountain at the entrance filled with leaves and the pool outside having no water in, but I'd like to go back during the daytime to enjoy what appears to be a spectacular view.

We had our staff end of year function at this restaurant (about 18 of us) and set off with a bit of apprehension. Wow!! What a pleasant surprise. The view was incredible, the service was outstanding and the food was more than wonderful. Everyone ordered from the a la carte menu and not ONE of us was disappointed. The entertainment (music by Mark Johnson) added to the atmosphere. He was excellent. We will certainly be back. Thandi.
