Lovely restaurant in a great new location. Service wonderful but food not as great as before. Chicken curry used to be out of this world, but found it watery and less flavourful than before. Great pity.

The restaurant was recommended by friends who are former residents of Montagu but it was a bit of a let down. The ambience is very nice, we sat in the pretty garden and were very comfortable. We were promised a fire, despite much effort to start it - never materialised - but we were well smoked. The smoked trout starter... More

We had a great lamb shank here. Friendly staff and good service, great outdoor area for summer nights or day time. The only problem was that it was freezing cold, the heaters gas had run out and the staff said they could not close the front door so it was very draughty.

Very accomodating and friendly staff! Placed our order in the car on our way and our food arrived 15 minutes after our arrival! Great start to our weekend. Beautiful garden with tables at the back of the building.

We were in Montagu for the weekend and we were looking for a spot to have dinner - It was still relatively early in the evening and we noticed a 'beer garden' sign, so figured we'd stop there for a drink before dinner. The garden is beautiful - The perfect setting for an intimate dinner. We decided to stay for... More

A wide variety of choices on the menu and very family friendly. Visited with a large group on a public holiday and received friendly and timely service. Can definitely recommend the bobotie or cape chicken curry.

So this lovely restaurant has moved to new premises in Bath street. Bit of a downgrade in terms of the location's surroundings. However, the setting inside and the garden is fantastic. Food excellent. Really enjoyed it.

Having been told that this was the best place in town I booked a table for two. It is dog friendly in the garden. The service was good even though a staff member had not arrived. We ordered the snails to share as a starter which were dry and rubbery and the cheese topping dry. They looked and tasted mico... More

Dear Tony Thank you for taking the time out to give us your feedback. Firstly my sincere apologies that we did not live up to your expectations. We were down a cook that night and so the pressure is on for the remaining staff in the kitchen to perform. However I must just mention that we absolutely do NOT microwave... More
