In South Africa for my daughter's wedding we cam here with some of the bridal crew. Great food, great atmosphere and a great feel to it. What more can I say? It came with the groom's recommendations and we highly approved afterward!

Cheapest cocktails ever during Happy Hour! From $2 AUD. Fun quirky place that serves cocktails, beers & great snack food. One complaint is people smoking in outdoor area with windows wide open the cigarette smoke goes straight to inside seating area. Very unpleasant!
