We stopped at the Planet bar in Mount Nelson for lunch. The whole place oozes old world charm from the moment the doormen in bowler hats take your car keys and show you into the lobby.
Everything was perfect. Food, given it was the bar we were eating in, was excellent, accompanied with friendly and efficient service. We ended up spending nearly 3 hours enjoying the food and strolling in the gardens. A proper "Out of Africa" -setting in every way. If you love modern and funky, stay away :-) if you value good old fashioned service, charming surroundings and good food, this place is a must! With the usual caveat, not cheap!
