Our first visit, we really enjoyed the dry humour of our waiter, great food with a south african touch, lovely peaceful garden and were told we might even bring a dog if it is on a leash.

A true homage to all that is South African. Yummy food, cute nik-naks at the shop and a lovely natural garden at the back. Just sitting under the trees listening to the birds tjirp frees the soul.
