Once again we were traveling and were looking for a restaurant that can cook a delicious steak. We used TripAdvisor and found this delight. The food was good and we were helped with friendly efficient staff. It was a pleasure being here.

First night in the city we didn't venture out from the hotel and in fact after a few steak meals in a week this was one of the best. Well cooked fillet, beautiful glaze and a good temperature for a rare cook level. All meals...More

Twice we went to this restaurant, first we enjoyed the steak and next time the antilope and ostrich. Good service and delicious food.

Limited menu (mainly steaks) with a few other options. Actually very good steaks but just think it is expensive compared to other local restaurants and a bit lacking in atmosphere. Worth giving a go if at hotel but not worth a special visit.

So many better places to go. Fillet was ordered medium but over-cooked. Fries good. Most disappointing was the roasted vegetables - more boiled than roasted and tasteless. Wince selection by glass very limited. Just not good enough to justify price.

We ate here as we were staying at the hotel. At least four of the items we tried to order weren't available. What we did order was actually very good but service was a bit patchy.
