Stopped for a quick bite to eat as a late lunch. Lovely sunny spot protected from the wind. Thought I'd have a tapas and a glass of wine and be on my way. Food was so good I ate four tapas - just couldn't get...More

Good destination and location for brunch....intended to have lunch but this only served from 12:30 on weekends. Nontheless, breakfast menu included old favourites as well as some other interesting dishes. We had four different dishes, all good. Service friendly and efficient.

Went for English breakfast. Was very disappointed, asked for soft eggs, got hard eggs and burned sausage. Pity could have visited again. Think the R80 for breakfast was to much as it did not stand up to my expectations.
