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.

Favourite restaurant in South Africa... Tried my first ever spring bok, ostrich, and crocodile, and all for less money than a sandwich costs in the UK. Sit outside for great views over the waterside. :)
