Upon arrival there was only one other car parked outside - is it a bad sign, or is everyone just watching the rugby elsewhere?! We take our chances and discover a memorable experience, not just another restaurant, not just another meal...
We were seated next to the fireplace - a plus if you visit Clarens in winter. Meal orders are taken by the chef himself. The steak here is definitely a contender for the best I've ever had at a restaurant, which a beautiful "Spanish" sauce, mustard mash and beautifully prepared vegetables.
We spent more than 3 hours at the restaurant and don't regret a single second! The Phatt Chef is a must!
