Advised by my guesthouse owner ( Tintagel ) as the place to try game. No regrets at all. The service provided by our waiter, Mr. John was attentive and polite and amenable to changes. The food served was excellent. We have as mains Ostrich steak and burger, kudu loin and Warthog Ribs. As this was our first experience with game food must say it was a great meal especially the Ostrich Steak and the Grilled Warthog Ribs.
It starts early at 6 am serving awesome breakfast from the reviews I read. It will great for those who stay at places where breakfast is not covered.

This is not one of the more expensive restaurants in town. It is definitely not one of the best. It is decent, but nowhere near the top, where it is currently ranked. The game plate is definitely a good idea. Howewer the meats on the game plate are not the best. Of all the ostrich and kudu I had in town these were the toughest. The croc tail and the warthog ribs were good though. Service somehat slow, wine list rather short. This is a decent diner that is overrated. One of my few disappointments with Tripadvisor. Definitely at the bottom of the 5 restaurants I tried in town.

This is not the first time that we visit this restaurant and probably not the last. The service is always super friendly and professional. The food was excellent , tasty and well prepared and priced. The wine was perfectly chilled. Highly recommended.

What can I say, brilliant food. Not glitzy or shiny like some places but the food make a up for this. Generous portion sizes and meats from bok and kubu to crocodile and standard types also. A must go if you get the chance. The prices for the sizes you cannot argue with.

We ate here a few times, lunch and two dinners. The food is near to fine dining at mid-range prices, and the drinks are good value. Steaks of all types and ribs are great. The only down side is they don't do a T-bone, but the fillet is excellent; and so are the sweets. The service is excellent, with great staff.
