We had reservations and were very warmly welcomed. All the service was fantastic. Everyone was knowledgeable about the food, the wine ... even though a constantly rotating menu changes every 6 hours. The food was great; as was the atmosphere.

A local coworker took us to this restaurant for dinner. The atmosphere was great and the food was outstanding. I tried the Kudu steak and it was very good. Make sure you save room for dessert (Sticky Toffee Pudding highly recommended).

I think we ended up eating her 3 times during our 5 day stay. Once lunch and twice dinner. Tried to go first night of our arrival into Cape Town but it was booked. Love the inventive menu which changes daily. Local/seasonal foods.
