Food was 'average' and not at all worth the price of R770.00 for two. The general manager was walking around in shorts and a t-shirt. The atmosphere was not warm and romantic. Over priced for what it offered. We will NOT be going there again....More

Joined group of friends today for lunch. The waitress was lovely, but everything highly overpriced. My bouillabaise was a huge disappointment. Huge dish, with tiny bowl for the soup. To be fair, the manager did give us a voucher, but won't be back ever.
