Have to be honest, not my recommendation. First we get a waiter with no product knowledge and we can hardly hear his broken English. But they got the food order wrong and managed to burn the oxtail. Rhus my husband returned it leaving my husband...More

The place is the best, especially for the authentic African cuisine - especially for the Giant Venison Skewer; plus the wine's great along with the excellent staff and view. All in all, a MUST for you time at the waterfront!!

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

We actually visited this restaurant twice during our vacation, which is pretty rare for us to do, but their steak Diane is really quite something. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, good food, you can't go wrong on this one.

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.
