A friend introduced us to this interesting restaurant with an even more interesting tale behind the name. We loved reading the story upon arriving and were shown to a very comfortably seated area. The menu is not very extensive but everything I ordered was delicious! You must try the pap!

Visited this restaurant with my wife and some friends the other day and was pleasantly surprised by the experience. Completely different to what one would expect and certainly different from the norm, BUT great food, tasty and fresh. Service is also good. Love the smoked coleslaw.

Went here to catch up and have a few drinks with old friends. Beer selection was decent. Food was a fusion standard bar fare with a local twist. Staff were attentive without being overbearing.

For a chilled outing in the heart of Cape Town. Enjoy a drink and a bite to eat. Enjoyed their platters. Worth popping past
Friendly staff and can either sit inside near the warm fire or out side on the wrap around verandah. Upstairs venue so not wheelchair friendly
