I can't remember feeling as confused about what to write in a review...
The food was AMAZING. My son and I both had the Seafood Hotpot (potjie) which was both incredibly delicious and fantastic value for money. But everyone enjoyed their meals and our waiter was attentive and engaging.
My only food related criticism was the length of time between first and last plates arriving, something it seems other reviews have mentioned.
But the main reason for reduced stars is the display of the old South African flag and the old SA Police flag. I realise some people think it's a part of their cultural history and there may even be an argument over whether it's display here constitutes art, but you have to be utterly tone deaf not to realise it's a potent symbol of a hurtful past. It's display in a restaurant is quite simply unacceptable. As my (black, adopted) son said: "Why is the apartheid flag here?" Indeed.
We (especially those of us who are white South Africans) have to call this out if we want to have any hope for healing in our country.
