Excellent food and very friendly helpful staff. Visited this restaurant two years running and my only grief is the meal I had last year which is one of my favourite meals ever was no longer on the menu!! Very different menu though which is good as it is a South African restaurant. Nice décor and very welcoming atmosphere. Would have no hesitation in returning to this restaurant or recommending it to others!!

The steaks are the best you'll ever find anywhere, even in the good old USA. The owner, Win, has the knack of being friendly but not intrusive. The serving staff are extremely good. You must book, as it gets busy very quickly. This is a South African restaurant and the SA dishes could be a bit strong in flavour for some tastes. The lamb dish is a case in point as it had I think a very strong flavour of fennel. Babotie is minced lamb with sultanas. Again, not to everyone's taste. However the rest of the menu is simply superb. The starters are excellent. I had the mussels in champagne sauce. The mussels, which were huge, tasted of the sea and the champagne sauce was gorgeous. Not many desserts, but the Banoffie pie was sooooo good.

I would rate this not only as the best restaurant in Luz, but one of the best anywhere. We've eaten there many times and it is always consistently good.

Visited here a couple times during our holiday, whole family enjoyed it. The kebab skewers are well worth trying and well priced, my wife also enjoyed her steak. Service very friendly, we plan to return and eat here next year. Menu is varied. It is well worth booking as both times we visited and also when we walked past the place was very busy.
