From the moment you enter you are waited on by friendly staff. The food was delicious with portion sizes being just right. Prices are reasonable and choices are sufficient without being overwhelming. Atmosphere was cosy and welcoming. A must if in the area.

The guys who run this place come with a long history and I expected a lot more. I seek out pork bellies and theirs was definitely not up to par. Crackling didn't crackle and there was too much chew to the meat. The sauce was...More

Veterans to the Somerset West gourmet scene Chef Anton and his partner Ed, have changed focus from the casual fine dining environment they became known for and have embarked on offering SERVICE and GOOD FOOD in a much more relaxed style of establishment, offering an all day bistro style menu, using fresh seasonal produce and all prepared by Chef Anton's own hand. Whether you dine in the inside space or in the secluded covered courtyard garden you are sure to enjoy all that Chef Anton prepares, whilst host Ed and his team are always on hand to offer you the best dining experience in Somerset West.....And a smile :-).
