The food was excellent, especially the steak was one of the best ever. The atmosphere is great and relaxing, the service very good and the staff friendly. The menu is great and with a lot of dishes to choose from.

The ambience and food was extremely nice. Didn't appreciate that the waiter call my mother 'tannie' but everything else was perfect. Good value for what it is.

Lived up to all its praises. Meals were tasty and plenty on the plate. Must however be a South African thing - "slow service" we arrived at 7pm & walked out at 10pm. Possibly management need to employ more staff to cope with the huge crowds on Friday nights.
