Declan, our host at Akademie, suggested this restaurant and it did not disappoint. We had a table right next to the open kitchen, and saw the attention to detail on every plate. From picking/placing little flowers from a vase to dotting colorful sauces/spices. I've never...More

Lovely dinner - big portions and felt very healthy. Menu largely vergetarian. Service on relaxed (slow) side. Worth a visit.

We had a dinner to celebrate our anniversary. A great selection of food for all, carnivores, pescatarians, vegetarians and vegans. Starters, main courses and desserts- all vegan. Great restaurant for special events.

Throughout South Africa, we ate well, but nowhere better than this cozy restaurant with brilliant food and friendly service. And good wine, of course, in the heart of wine territory. Interesting and creative food choices.
