We were picked up by their shuttle service and driven to the petrol station!!! The restaurant has a very odd location but once inside the atmosphere was lively and welcoming. The staff were all excellent and the food great. Nothing was too much trouble. Sweets were delicious too. So ignore the weirdness of its location and enjoy a good value,... More

The best meal so far on our South African holiday. My wife and I shared one their mixed staters which was delicious. Morag then had a combination dish,prawns and yellowtail while I had a lovely Thai chicken curry. Good wines at very reasonable prices together with attentive service completed the night.

Absolutely Devine food and friendly service The soup was good. I had a chicken curry and my wife had the chicken stack. The chicken stack was amazingly good. Fresh interesting flavors. My wife also had dessert, litchi stuffed with ginger with home made ice cream and that was awesome too.

The restaurant is next to a gas station and the terrace is next to a highway. The prawns were like sponges and the vegetables and rice messy. Service is good

Location - stuck on the back of a filling station with views overlooking a wall to one side and a car park to the other, so let`s just concentrate on the rest. The food is good, service friendly and knowledgeable and they`ll even give you a lift back to your hotel if you`ve had a few too many.

We had it last January and this january each two times. It is not star kitchen but really valuable. We had really excellent catch of the day, very fine Filet of beef, "lecker" deserts on reasonable prices. What can you want more ?

Be sure to book in advance and enjoy the quality and service. Just a bit disappointed in the fact that they only served 5 mussels as a starter dish

We had heard great things about the place but the mussels we had were very overcooked. The wine list there is good though

The restaurant is open till the last customer leaves. Vegetarians can expect really good food. The deserts are simply amazing and so confusing- you want to try everything :) Tip- Do go hungry and make sure you try the desersts

The location makes you think twice - adjoining a petrol station near a busy road - but a real treat and shouldn't be missed. The food centres around South African specialities (meat and sea food) but dishes have a creative take with amazing flavour combinations. There's an art gallery in the upstairs section showcasing local artists and the ambiance is... More
