The meal was exceptional and the staff very very good. Our last night in South Africa and we could not have picked a more perfect restaurant. A must.

Make no mistake, you can eat for far cheaper in PE. But the quality of the venison I had as my main was unrivalled by anything I'd had anywhere else. A good selection of South African wines to complement the meal. All in all, I...More
