We went twice we liked it so much. It's an experience rather than just dining. The vibe is buzzy and Robin the maitre'd an absolute hoot. Yes it's very busy, noisy and a bit bonkers but the food we ate was great especially the truffled macaroni cheese.

Went there with a group of girls for dinner. The ambience is lovely but the experience wasn't anything special.. Many items on the menu were not available and eventually when I got my main it was super average for the value.

No service, no relational, unfriendly staff, arrogant and snob. Wasted 1h30 waiting for our table that booked i advance to be placed to a ridiculous table uncomfortable next to the kitchen and then another 30 minutes to get the Menu. We left hungry thirsty and unhappy, they ruined our night without any apologies. If you are looking for to waste... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant -with good reason. The food was varied and tasty. The cost was reasonable and the choice good. This restaurant is very popular and consequently can be a little noisy.

Don't leave Cape Town without having a meal here! From stepping into the venue, you can be sure to have a time to remember! Food is just the best in town, take your pick of sea food, meat or vegetarian! Service is simply flawless!!! Will definitely be back with every visit to Cape Town!!
