Had amazing lunch! Best steak! Meat is so tender, knife cuts through it like butter. Durban lamb curry so tender and spicy, fantastic! Relax next to the river!

After visiting the establishment more than once, I found the restuarant to be great with a excellent outside area. The staff were great and quality of food was superb for a country riverside.

This outdoor venue straddles the picturesque Hennopsrivier and is charming in its appearance. Sadly though, a lot of this charm seems to have been lost since our last visit. The service was good - we had an attentive waiter who made sure all our needs...More
