Authentic African décor, seating that caters for a romantic dinner or an outing with friends. Very friendly staff and management and overall good service. We had a tasty meal and good recommendations from our waitress. Charming view of the city lights from the balcony seating.

From the start the service was good with the waiter being attentive throughout. I had the rump steak and it was prepared to perfection. The other guests seemed to enjoy their food except for the chococino. It might have been personal preference but the lady...More
