I only stopped for something to drink, but the terrace was a confortable place to rest. You can see the ocean and the sea point boardwalk with a lot of people passing by. Service was fine.

We had a wonderful line fish lunch in the courtyard. You have to try the sweet potato fries, they are devine.

The courtyard is very tranquil, but if you want to see the sea then rather sit outside. The food was very good, the staff were very efficient and friendly.

A quieter part of Sea Point with a terrace overlooking the Promenade. Great to watch the passing people and the sea.

The restaurant offers a 3 to 5 course set menu with optional wine pairing. We opted for a smaller a la carte options which were excellent fine dining. The springbok steaks were tender and cooked perfectly.

Friendly staff and overall good service.

A good option for a quieter outside dinner or lunch.

Thank Whctree

We had a wonderful evening. The food was extraordinary and our servant, Ophias, was very helpful, nice and professional. He helped us pick just the right courses, and all in all is this a night we'll never forget.

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor, with fabulous reviews. On the quieter edge of town, easier to park the car! Welcomed by a charming maitre'D and introduced to our very attentive waiter, Ally. Ally did his utmost to make sure our evening was the best, we asked his advice on menu choice and he recommended Springbok medium rare, this was absolutely delicious. We chose three courses, we also had an appetiser and sorbet. Every dish was presented beautifully, Michelin restaurant style. Ally was the perfect waiter, attentive and chatty, whilst also leaving us to enjoy a perfect meal, very professional.
