A stylish restaurant with excellent staff and service. Food definitely South African in character and ingredients but creatively crafted and prepared in an innovative manner. Perfect portion sizes (for Europeans certainly) Wine list incorporated a number of classic vineyards in the region.

Great Food. Friendly staff. Decent prices. The open kitchen-area caused a corresponding smell at our table.

Exceptionally good food, you get very good value for your money here. My companion suggested the people in the kitchen should rather be wearing wizard hats rather than chef hats. Am eagerly counting off the days till my next meal at Ryans.
