A really imaginative menu with some excellent choices of wine makes for high expectations. And so it proved! The seafood dishes were really good as was the pear and avocado salad. Service from Richard also superb and efficient follow up from Iain. Don’t be put off by the shopping centre entrance, it’s worth the walk past Woolworths!

A very kool looking unpretentious restaurant with an open kitchen, informed service and delicious Mediterranean style food, with a South African twist, their sea food especially!
A varied menu including some vegetarian options and the freshest vegetables and salads imaginable.
There’s something for everyone including beef, chicken and fish.
Everything was delicious with large portions and with the comparable USD or Euro cost at around 40% less and including an excellent selection of South African wines. Strongly recommend!

Very good experience. Out waiter Iain was very knowledgable and helpful, timing of dishes and quality were close to perfect. The kingclip and prawns were both sensational. Very recommended
