Roomy, breezy and open, enough parking and the space not overfilled with decoration. Food was well presented, menu was diverse and interesting. Simple, but elegant. They have a lunch menu and for evenings an evening menu. Very clever and makes sense. Something for everyone.

A very nice setting with a refreshingly short but diverse menu, good wine selection, good service, good food and consistency make it a good option.

Went here together with the family to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Food was well over average and the service was good. Nice atmosphere on the terrace.

This restaurant offers a view from their patio that is lovely. My husband ordered the game steak (springbok) and it was good. I ordered beef filet which was large but not as tender as I hoped. The service was very pleasant.

A wonderful nook to settle in for an after long lunch or sunny breakfast - this is high class all the way.
