Family get together to celebrate Mom's 80th Birthday. Despite electricity interruption issues, the service and the food was awesome.
The table was set so beautifully in white and gold colours and we were all made to feel so welcome.
Our fourth visit there, and we will be back!
Thank you so much to all staff and special mention to Felix our waiter - awesome :)

We had a 60th Birthday for my mother and Mother in law. People are still talking about how delicious the food was and how big the portions were.
The service was excellent!
The venue itself is absolutely beautiful. We will definitely come again!

We had a bithday lunch on Sunday 1.OOpm for 6 people.our table was outside on a patio, never requested this, but there was a function on inside so , we were put outside.
Ordered starters which took the best part of 45min, to come.We then asked the waitron to ensure the mains did not take as long,thie did not help, a 30 min wait. One main was Gnocci Pesto, the dish delivered was Penne pasta!!! 3 mains of grilled Kingkip, which were more like fried with all the oil and butter. A sole was also ordered this was over cooked and dry,
I asked for the manager, a young Lady said she could help, I made is clear that the service was very bad, and also that the Gnocchi was Penne, and the Kingklip was not grilled but was covered in oil and butter.I said there would be no service tip added, service was lacking, She took the charge off the bill, and sent the bill back with a waitron, did not even return to apologise!!!!!! Never again.

Good Day.

So glad we as an establishment have the ability to reply to reviews like this, so the truth may be said.

Let us start with the outdoor seating - where we prepared a beautiful table for your party, with the option to sit inside. Seeing as it was a lovely afternoon you chose to sit outside.
The guest ordered our pesto gnocchi and requested penne instead, why would we change a listed meal from gnocchi to penne without a request from the guest.
The kingklip is grilled in a small amount of olive oil and butter if you wanted us to grill it dry or use cook and spray, I suggest you inform the kitchen of your special request. All our food is cooked with a thermometer so there is no way the sole was overcooked.

With all this being said all the food was eaten without any complaint. Absolutely nothing was said to the waiter during the eating process. Once everything was eaten suddenly all of these errors appeared. Let me give you some advice if anyone was unhappy with anything it should be stated before everything is eaten, we would have loved to rectify any error, keeping quiet until you receive your bill is not the correct way to go about things.
