Called in here for a light snack and bottle of wine. We hadn’t booked but staff were really helpful and welcoming. Ordered the seafood plank and some garlic bread. Absolutely delicious. If you’re in Capetown, do visit.

Quality of the food is great and the service is good and fun. I recommend this place for good seafood. A little pricey but it's location is most likely the reason for this.

Hi there. We are not halaal-certified but we are halaal-friendly. There is no pork on our menu, our meat is purchased from halaal-certified suppliers, and we do not cook with alcohol, but we do serve alcohol on the premises.
