After going through about 5 options for dinner, I settled on this restaurant, and I'm glad I did. I got the last table which is always a good sign. The place is simple and has an old world charm about it and the service is friendly and super efficient. I had a spring roll with biltong, feta and peppadews to... More

The restaurant was very quiet but I didn't feel too isolated . The pasta was quite well done but too bland for my taste . The others in the group enjoyed steaks. Don't make this your first choice if you are more vegetarian by nature. The menu is limited.

I visited the restaurant with a group of friends for dinner . This is family run and from the moment you are greeted you feel very comfortable . The menu was excellent as was the wine list. I chose the snails followed by the 350 g eye fillet , both were exceptional , the steak was cooked rare to perfection... More

From the moment we arrived to the time we left, our group was extremely well looked after. The Service was excellent, as was the food. The Soup special, broccoli & blue cheese & steak were beautifully prepared, cooked & presented. The lady taking our orders explained all the dishes & her descriptions certainly added value. All in all we much... More

We were recommended highly to this restaurant by our landlady. Unfortunately it was hot, noisy and cramped, to the extent that they put a couple at a table under the stairs. As they were so busy, the food took a long time to come. The first course was O.K. and we had been told we must try the ice cream,... More
