We did only go here for lunch and that was not anything special. It looked nice in the garden. The service was good. The best was a drink they said was like medicin 😉 It was some vodka and diffrent kind of sugar. - Simon

Wonderful overall experience. We sat in the garden, it was beautiful. The service was attentive. Our meals were top notch and just what we needed after being on Safari for 10 days. You do need to book as it is popular with the locals too.
