The location is good as well as the setting. The coffee was not the best I've ever tasted. The breakfast was average but i liked the ostrich sausage though. Not sure if I would return.

Visited this place during visiting Cape Town. Very nice dishes and food. Also nice possibilities to watch football worldchampionship games in Russia.

I came specifically to try the game and I was not disappointed. The gemsbok wellington is probably the best single dish we had on our trip to Africa: cooked perfectly and the other ingredients really added taste. I had to send the kudu and the...More
