Meals are always wonderful. The selection is wide and the quality is great. The wine list is good so loads of options to pair with meals. The only challenge is related to the construction taking place which makes parking a nightmare.

The Bull run is an excellent restaurant only 5 mins walk from Nelson Mandela square. Well worth a visit for excellent food and a large wine selection. Staff informative and friendly.
