Enjoyed a "foccacia" (pizza bread) and a few beers whilst having a meeting. Service was good - nicely attentive without being intrusive. Great atmosphere, probably encouraged by the side walk seating.

Very reasonably priced with some good items on the menu, although you will need to try it on more than one occasion as some items on the menu can be hit and miss. They have great specials and the service is on point.

Located on Stanley street in Port Elizabeth, one of the hubs of Port Elizabeth's nightlife, this is a nice family restaurant one can visit if you have kids with you. It is not as loud as Salt or other venues on the street. The pizzas are really tasty and so is the chicken!

Unfortunately not open on a sunday, its best to get here on a Saturday for brunch or lunch. There is something for everyone on the menu and the vibe in Richmond Hill lends itself to lazt long weekend eatouts
