One of the first time's, I have not heard 1 complaint from anyone at the table. Not a very wide selection, but all done to perfection and delicious. The service and advice was excellent. Would definitely visit again.

The restaurant has the most amazing view ! The waiters were attentive and service was very good. They made a mistake with our booking but rectified the situation very quickly. Our starters were amazing, but the mains and desert were average.

Hi, my boys are a bit older but I've never encountered a child-unfriendly place in SA. They do have a small playground so I guess they like kids. But, you'd better call them.
