This is certainly one of my favorite South African restaurants. Food is the best quality, all of it, doesn't matter whether steak, fish, pasta, its all great. Brilliant staff, great location.

Great for quality and just nothing to point from service to food quality. It is a pleasure to have a waiter that has full knowledge of all dishes in detail. It makes it real value for money.

We had dinner and enjoyed very much. Really good food with fresh ingredients and excellent value for money. We will rather pay slightly a little bit more, but get good quality. The service was also great and very friendly. The waiter knew his menu very well and did great recommendations. This restaurant will see us again.

We visit Pigalle every now and then and service is always excellent, the food is of a very high quality and the presentation always good. I love their prawn curry and they serve an amazing Creme Brulee. The perfect dining spot for date nite or a family dinner... I will recommend any time.

The restaurant is in a safe location. It looks really posh and I liked the decoration and the atmosphere. My food however was terrible, and I think it's overpriced for what you get.
