First day in Riebeek West we chose this restaurant mainly due to their availability. The settings are simplistic, our waitress Molly made up for this. Our food was well presented and delicious. If you're wanting a meal without a vibrant atmosphere this is for you!

Excellent food and great service make this a wonderful place for a proper meal. Pork eisbein with homemade mustard and creamy mashed potato, served with crispy veggies and salad. Big portions and good value for money make this a must stop restaurant.

A birthday treat for the madam, and what a great choice. A small but very interesting menu, plenty of wines to choose from lovely food, attentive service, HOT plates, and warm smiles. We will return
