great food, super steaks, but the waiter did just increase the tip as apparently my 9% was not enough, so he did put in 10% - which I find not acceptable.

We had some of the local dishes (potjes) and enjoyed them very much. We also had a bottle of pinotage, the true south African grape. It was reasonably priced and tasted great. Our waiter was very personable and gave us more information about the dishes...More
