We revisited the Restaurant with our grandson and the person serving us, Matt, made it extra special for him. The meal choice made up of different selections was no problem, attention being notified to us of the slight difference in pricing. The advice given was spot on, we had Eisebein, black plated prawns, potjie of snails, giblets (hot) could be... More

Went to my favorite restaurant to enjoy some prawns. Not a good day. Mix up with waitresses so waited 30 mins to be served. Waited to order beer refil. Eventually got prawns with no napkins. When prawns arrived so did about 20 flies so had fun eating prawns with the flies. No manager in sight to listen to my issues.

Inside was a bit dark so we opted to sit outside which did get rather hot in the Pretoria heatwave. But the food made up for it and we were pleasantly surprised! The Prawns were much better than expected.

The menu has a variety of dishes. I have had vegetarian (spinach and feta spud), seafood (pemba hake) and steak (mushroom and feta) and all were really good. Every time I have been here the restaurant has been busy however we never had to wait long for service. Prices are a bit high, but portions are generous. A great pub... More

Service is good. Meals are very good. Well presented and good value for money. Will definitely recommend to others and will definitely eat there again. Atmosphere was nice and relaxed. Extra care is taken to keep things cool with mist blowers. Décor is interesting.

First night in SA and recommended by guest house and close by. Food pretty good and good value compared to home (UK). Service a bit hit and miss but all in worth a visit
