Went in during the day to try and get a table and fell lucky but would recommend booking in advance. The staff are attentive and the food was excellent. We will go back when we return at some time to SA

I think we spent about Rand 400 per person, including pre-dinner drinks. We were travelling from the UK and it all seemed amazingly cheap compared to London. I think by SA standards it isn't cheap.
