The most wonderful dinner -- a real highlight eating experience with the very reasonably priced tasting menu. Fantastic, beautifully presented food accompanied by appropriate wines. Do it!

This is lovely restaurant with the potential for a great ambience and experience. We stayed at the hotel and ate at the restaurant. The degustation menu was excellent, the food was of a high quality, the service from Romeo and Marco was also excellent. Wines are expensive compared to South African prices with some bottles of wine being 3-4 times the price you’d pay in South Africa. Where this went wrong was how the restaurant was managed. We begin with half a dozen tables filled in what was a quiet sophisticated feel. This changed when 50-60 people walked in from the Rovos Rail tour and then another large tour group of American tourists. The Rovos Rail group were generally fine but the American tourists were loud and bawdy and had clearly been drinking, there had been a drinks reception next door. The pianist might as well have played ‘knees up mother brown’. This became intolerable and if we’d have known this is how this restaurant is used we would have avoided it. The dress code went out the window as well as many came in walking/hiking trousers. Such a shame and the restaurant should inform diners booking that large tour groups will be in the restaurant.

This restaurant is very fancy and so is the food. The most simple thing in the whole restaurant is the bread and butter. My daughter ordered a pasta dish and I got a vegetable plate of some sort, and both were very hot with curry. Way too hot for us! It was very good food, just too hot. The ambiance of the room is exquisite, and should be experienced. Order ice cream for dessert, and that will make up for the hot main dish.

Food and service was impeccable,piano player was excellent.
Has strict dress code, however I felt fellow diners had not observed the code.
Restaurant was slightly cold, but otherwise beautiful.
I would suggest you maintain same dress code for all diners.
