The restaurant was full when we visited but still enjoyed excellent service and food. Their gin is a winner!

We visited Clarens for the weekend and ate here both nights. The food and service were great both times. The atmosphere is a bit kitch, but you are where you are. Booking seems to be essential. Steaks, wine, desserts and service were all top-notch.More

Shelley is a great host with the chef who is the ultimate. Best oxtail in the world ( no kidding) and a selection of wines and whisky's including single malt ( Glen livet and all the Glens). Best atmosphere and a must to visit.
