Ate here three times during my stay in town - excellent food every time but very very limited menu choices. Staff were great and venu atmospher very good. I'll vist again but once per stay will be enough given the limited range of choice.

We had an early dinner/late lunch in the Black Swan. Enjoyed the local Ostrich steaks. They have an excellent wine list and we had a very knowledgeable and friendly lady to serve us.
