After reading previous reviews I wasn't sure what to expect... However our experience here was really positive. Starters were quick - salads are a meal on their own. Main courses very good and efficient service. No bookings taken so there is a queue to get in.

Love the understated decor . Service was professional . Winelist great and Steak Tartare was to die for and Mussels plentiful and tasty. Will definitely be back. Later in the night they were a bit too ready to get rid of us but food was fantastic

At the insistence of Cape Town friends last week, we decided to give it another try. I always understood that the cuisine at this restaurant was contemporary Mediterranean and... More

They "forgot" one order, and that was the order from the only coloured person among us. Please do not visit this place.

Tempura Prawns with Sweet Chili sauce fantastic as are the Lamb Chops, Chicken Schnitzel,Steak. Lovely Jacket Potatoes to complement whatever you like. You can't book in the evenings but you never seem to wait long. The Menu is not extensive but... More
