The first thing announced here is the Richard Branson is involved, not sure why that’s a selling point? The waiting staff not trained and the food; well overcooked venison and a “jerk” pork dish that was quite frankly inedible. Manager aloofMore

Description
Miko is the main restaurant at Mont Rochelle. The food served is a blend of international dishes with a healthy nod to the varied nature of South Africa cuisine, paired naturally with some superb local vintages. Miko is open for non-resident guests, but we do recommend you call in advance to book a table.
