We stopped here for lunch while out sight seeing. Loved the outdoor patio and had an amazing lunch for our family. Everything was fresh and unique. I had a chick pea salad with fresh grilled calamari and chorizo. Super unique but fabulous.

We're starting to go here on a regular basis. You simply can not get food this good. It's pure perfection in the French style. The restaurant is cosy and in a small comfortable place. Loads of character. Service is impeccable and the team has soul.

We ate out four nights in Cape Town, and this was comfortably our favourite. The decor is lovely and the service impeccable. My steak was beautifully cooked, and my first experience of Malva pudding was very tasty indeed.
