We did not have reservations, so we had to wait a while for a table. It was worth it. The young lady who served us did a great job. The traditional bobotie was to die for. Malva pudding likewise.

We had visited this restaurant a few years back when they were a little further up the road. The new location is great. Plenty of off and on road secure parking. Helpfull staff. Great food. Decent wine list. Will go back there again

For us it was number 2 in town. If you like meat its a good choice. The Pasta is not recommandable. Overcooked noodles and suspicious Sauce. The mushroom soup as starter was delicious and the steak as Starter also. Worth to try!More
