My wife and I read about it in a Bloomberg article. The restaurant is cute and intimate. It's great for a first date or an ordinary one. Our meal was delicious and our server, Vava, was so sweet and energetic!

Visited as a family of 5 and were impressed with the charm friendliness and value for money. Had a variety from fish and chips to burgers, spaghetti primavera calamari and chicken curry. All were pleased with the service and twinkle twinkle our waitress.

It's hidden high up in Vredehoek. The locals obviously know about it. To be sure to get a table, make a booking. Try to sit outside on a good evening, watch the sunset. Super. Food is fresh and great.

Great local spot in Vredhoek. Excellent service. Fresh delicious food. Great decor. I ordered a granola and fresh fruit combo and wasn't dissappointed. I'd happily come back. Recommend to people in the area.
