Faultless. Great service. Impeccable food. Brilliant wine. Our waiter was brilliant and knowledgeable about the history of the building in which the restaurant is set. Fantastic local produce and an extensive wine list. You should eat here if visiting Cape Town.

We look vet this restraint, particularly the cheese soufflé, roasted, spiced nut salad and John Dory. The only disappointment was the stale tasting pancakes which may be because they are gluten free.
