Had a lovely catch up with old Friends. Although it was a very packed night i still felt very comfortable. We had a delicious and rich bottle of the house red wine and steaks to match. I'd recommend to all visiting the rondebosch area.

classic steak house with lots of game meat options -- traditional, reasonably priced, and comfortable. Perhaps not worth a trip from the city centre, but probably the best option in the neighbourhood
