We enjoyed our dinner very much. They offer uncommon (at least for European guys) meat, which is perfectly done. I highly recommend the warthog. The service was very busy and kind

Had an evening meal here which for me was warthog grilled on skewers and then a really delicious Crème Brulée in a novel format (I won’t spoil the surprise). Not a bad place for folk with hearing aids and a good ambience - altogether enjoyable.

We ate here one night. We both had sirloin steak. It was excellent, I would rate it as one of the top 5 steaks I have had.
