The service was efficient and friendly. The food was divine and the view was spectacular. Best view of Howick falls. Try the Avo stack and Camembert phyllo with chilli jam. Good veggie options!

A lovely spot with views of the falls. We sat outside under the trees. The food was really good too. Steak was cooked perfectly.
