Now known as Popolo, this family friendly place served us the best Quattro Stratcioni Pizza, Sashimi and Seared Tuna salad we have had for a long time! Friendly service always taking note of individual needs.

So far the best Seafood restaurant we visited during our trip to Cape Town/ Stellenbosch. Great value, and very friendly waiter - Itayi. Food was more than we could eat. 5 Star - Don’t miss this restaurant.
