Good friendly service. The rest of our party thoroughly enjoyed their meals. I had a salad and was disappointed at the pile of lettuce on which the rest of the Greek components were scattered. Everything else was good though.

If you are stopping over in Colesburg it is an excellent choice of restaurant for a meal. The service was quick and friendly. The food was tasty. The karoo lamb chops were excellent.
