Having been to and really enjoyed Savoy Cabbage on previous SA visits we were rather disappointed this time. Our booking was at 8.45 midweek but the place was nearly empty and soulless. A little background music might have helped. My wife’s beef was rather dry....More

If you’re looking for a fine dining experience on a budget, the Savoy Cabbage isn’t a bad option! I had their “three pigs” option for dinner and it was tasty, along with their creme brûlée for dessert.

Located downtown, this unassuming restaurant is larger than its frontage suggests. Menu changes daily dependant on season/ingredients. Modern/eclectic food with friendly but not overpowering service, portion size just right, ordered us a cab back to our hotel. Don't like the bars at the windows or...More
