We walked in as the kids saw the play area so we did not expect much but surely we were super surprised. We sat outside and the views were to die for I must say. Thank you for the yummy starters which we enjoyed as Tapas with a bottle of vino.

Often eat at this restaurant. They have just updated their menu and it's better than ever. They have great gluten free options for mains and dessert. Fantastic views and service. Highly recommended.

Healthy inspector alert level of filth on the menus. Pizza was very tasty - but as others have mentioned - a little soggy. Still I prefer slightly soggy to a bad... More

In particular the chicken burger which was very small and also the soggy pizza. The latter was a 'Parma' (premium priced at R135) with Parma ham and pecorino... More

Really awesome pizza and great venue. They have quite a few gluten free options including dessert!! Kids play area , so also a good family option! Outdoor seating area great when the weather plays with. Can be a bit pricey but generous sized portions and great quality food. Recommended
