Dinner in this well-known restaurant was not quite up to our expectations. The food itself was enjoyable, if not superb, but the tone of the service was surprising, especially compared to all of the other places we visited in Cape Town and elsewhere in South...More

We had a very special meal here. Excellent, personal service and a range of meat selections, many of which would be unusual to an American diner but not out of place in South Africa. Highly recommend!

The concept of the food combination is perfect as well as the wine going with it, a lovely experience, never to forget, one of the finest restaurants in the world!

For Cape Town it is completely overpriced for the food served. The soups were average, the meat okay, but nothing special. Fish was partially dry. They are not used to accommodate children. Just plain pasta with meat served. Service was very good though.
