An absolutely fantastic 11-course meal (there isn't an option to have anything smaller), all presented with great skill, artistry and theatre. Difficult to understand why they aren't Michelin-starred - although apparently that is on the cards. The menu cost R1,100, which is not cheap, but...More

For serious foodies -- great experience. We had the 10 course tasting menu with paired wines. We loved every course and the experience was true theatre with some participation required in at least one course. Leave the kids at the hotel (we did) for this...More

Booked for a large internationally divers group who typically enjoys a good burger rather than fine food. Paired with good wine and each course delivered with a theatrical introduction converted the group into fine diners. Greta experience!
