This is a restaurant situated centrally in town with excellent food and service. Actually it must be one of the best restaurants in the Cape province. We highly recommend it for a true South African menu. You will love it.

Had a great experience with amazing and innovative food. Lovely service. We were seated by the fireplace with a view right into the kitchen. If you are in town drinking awesome wine, why not treat yourself to an outstanding dinner experience!
