Firstly, if there was a 3.5 star rating - I'd give it. If only for the springbok steak.
The reason this place loses out is that it has become a little to much like a safari version of McDonalds.
Location is great, the occasional live band helps the atmosphere, although nobody really seems to be paying attention. And if you want to be treated to novelty meats, then the menu promises much. But the 'go to' dish, the Mama Africa's Wild Game Mixed grill (a) has no price next to it on the menu and (b) turns up as single skewers, some solo pieces with a single baked potato.
The Warthog is dry (but that's pork for you), the Ostrich seemed slightly overdone and crocodile continues to taste like chicken!
The Thelma Mountain Red (mixed grape) went well with the meats. You do need something a little robust to deal with the food and add flavour.
The service was fine, not knockout. But mainly it was the atmosphere that was a let down. You wanted to be be somewhere a little 'edgy' not next to a table with 3 kids under 6 messing around!
This is one of the more expensive places you will eat in Cape Town. I would suggest that you consider other reviews of other places for similar fare.
