“Good quality food in a fresh modern setting”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

We had dinner here over the June 16 long weekend (Clarens was packed!). The food was excellent, as was the service. We both had fish (prawns & kingklip) and both main courses were very well prepared and tasty. There is B.Y.O wine due to a lack of a liquor license, however we knew this up front, so was not an issue.

“Great food”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

Good food, warm and friendly atmosphere. A welcome addition to restaurant choice in Clarens. The service was genuine and attentive and the food a delight. Nice and warm on a cold winter evening. The location on the main square makes for a festive feeling and I am sure to return on my next visit. Well done Carol keep up the good hard work.

Had a very pleasant experience with good food, service and atmosphere.
Recommended but requires booking as very trendy at the moment.

“Fantastic value”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

We stayed three nights in Clarens and ate here on two evenings. The steak is excellent, the restaurant is warm thanks to the woodburner and staff are welcoming. I thoroughly recommend it.
