Great food, great service. Plenty of choice. Our waiter was a delight. Informal, with a great sense of humour. Food was very well presented, and a good selection. The braised oxtail, was historic. Nice setting, not been open long, so will only get even better.

A dream came true for Johan & Endria when Café 1904 Restaurant opened its doors on the 1st of April 2017 Its in this little aquainted restaurant where the pure art of food PREPARING and PRESENTATION can be found. "We Love Nature . we love people we love food... WE HAVE A PASSION FOR LIFE. "We are busy... very busy..." but this couple is never too busy to meet their guests and spend time with them.
