This restaurant is in a pleasantly converted old building - the atmosphere is chic however and well designed. The cuisine is excellent. I especially recommend the cheese souffle, and the roast duck. Of course it being the Cape the wine list is impressive. Go there,...More

Nice restaurant in Cape town! Downstairs and upstairs. Big open kitchen. Good variety of dishes but not to much, so you don't get lost. I recommend the 3 little pigs! Super delicious! Don't forget dessert ...
