Wow. Food was amazing. Scallops on risotto was spot on. Springbok perfectly cooked. Malva delicious. All with live music from 80s soft rock to Bill Withers. Brilliant.

What do you pay for? Very nice ambience and setting, attentive staff, good food, and a live jazz band. Actually you can have a conversation while the band play. A first time for us, and definitely a unique experience of class.
