Friendly cosy place with a great pizza oven providing a nice warm atmosphere. Steaks are exceptional, as good as I've ever had anywhere. Springbok shanks are to die for. Drinks are expensive but overall well worth a visit. Having said that don't go on Fridays or Saturdays unless you enjoy eating with kiddies running round all over the place. We... More

Eaten here again on my latest visit. The pizza is still great, reasonable value and service acceptable. Calamari starters still some of the best in Hout Bay.

Very nice atmosphere and very good dinner. Staff very friendly and we enjoyed our dinner. Ostrich steak excellent. Three of us had springbok which was delicious. If we had a small negative I would say the veg were not very interesting. However overall we enjoyed.

Our group of three chose 2 pizzas and the penne aribiata. Took about 20 minutes to arrive and the food was delicious. Pizza base firm, not undercooked, and the pasta was served with the extra chili as requested. Corkage was R 20 per bottle which was reasonable. A good night out, and value for money

Prompt, obliging and friendly service. Very tasty well cooked food - the ostrich steaks were out of this world. Friendly atmosphere. Nothing not to like! Opens at 5, so no breakfast or brunch possible

Ate here a couple of weeks ago. The pizzas were great, lovely thin bases and they do a cauliflower one which is great if you need gluten free. My favourite was the parma pizza and it's fun that there are such a huge number of extra toppings on offer - you could have a different pizza every day of the... More
