We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and the reviews are spot on. We enjoyed this restaurant so much that we ate there twice during our visit to Cape Town.

Tapas portions were the right size for selecting multiple items. My husband and I each did a 3 plate tasting so we sampled 6 items in total. All items were amazing. We had risotto, gambas al ajill (prawns) ox tail (so amazing), beef filet cubes with bearnaise sauce (we reordered this because so tender and good), pork belly, lamb ribs, baked Camembert, and ravioli. And don’t forget a side order of the French fries!

We also opted for the gin and tonic cart. It was so good that we did it again on the second visit.

We ended both meals with the berry cheesecake. It was probably the best cheesecake that I’ve ever eaten, so creamy and delicious.

This place is also a winery so lots of great wines to try.

We had two excellent meals at this restaurant!

Visited with a group of colleagues. Made a quick reservation based on positive reviews online. Boy, were we not disappointed. Very friendly and polite service without being fake or pushy. Staff took their time helping us choose wine. Food was nothing but amazing - packed with a lot of flavors. Prices are more than reasonable. Sadly, we did not have time to make a second visit. Highly recommended.

Visited this lovely little Bistro for my 50th birthday meal. The food without exception was beautifully presented and so delicious. We ate far too much as we were enjoying it all so much. The wine was really good and we finished with a birthday desert. Thank you. The waiting staff were just lovely, friendly helpful and made us feel very special on my big day.
