One of the best restaurants in Botswana. The food is amazing & the service is great. It’s very cozy & I highly recommend.

Menu and food is very good. Service is decent. Location is awful, especially on weekends due to the close proximity of a bottle store and tavern. Relocation would do this hidden gem wonders.

A refreshingly different menu from the usual steak and ribs type offerering of most restaurants. The décor and ambience is great, even though we were the only table on a Monday night. Service of course was then efficient, though product knowledge of the menu and...More

The menu is predominantly classical french (Smoked trout, foie gras, confit de canard, galette, etc), if you give them a call or e-mail them, then they will send it to you.
