The food is amazing. My 11 year old son says the chicken schnitzel is not to be missed. We also had lasagna, bobotie and kingklip at our table. All good. A real treat for our US guests.

I ordered the oxtail with mash potatoes and creamed spinach. It was well cooked and tasty. The meat melted in my mouth and easily came of the bone. The owner was welcoming and the service was good.
