We have eaten there on a few occasions and the food is somewhat basic for me. We visited for a reunion most recently and while it was adequate I wasn't at all blown away.

Excellent service, great food and value for money. Steak was cooked to perfection and the lamb shank was to die for. Such a pitty that this gem has to close its doors at the end of the month due to issues with land zoning. Hope...More

The service was bad. Expected more for the price and for a place situated in Durbanville. Has a lot of potential, new management maybe?

The restaurant itself has been around for over 13 years and over the years the customers have become our friends. The style, ambience and location of the restaurant lend itself to many weddings, birthdays and corporate functions. Fireplaces in the restaurant are welcoming on a cold winters evening an the vine covered terrace is very popular for outdoor dinning in summer.
