If I could I would give this 3.5 but I’ve gone for 3 because the service was not good. We were ignored for most of our visit. The food was fairly tasty though and there’s a nice feel to the restaurant. Not too expensive either.

On all levels , excellent. Apart from food, wine and service, there was nostalgic piano music Tip: make sure you have a reservation. While it's a fine dining restaurant, US/European visitors enjoy the benefit of the cheap Rand.

This was our third year in a row eating at this spectacular restaurant. Our food and service was fantastic. But our carrot cake portion was only half of what it use to be. I think when people become regular customers even if it is only...More
