My first thoughts when we walked into this establishment was the feeling that I had stepped backin time to a nightclub in the 1970’s. The space was cavernous.

I was staying in Cape Town at long street backpackers and wanted a nice dinner. I called the restaurant for a reservation. They even called a cab for me but I did have to pay which is definitely not a problem. I had beef carpaccio for a starter, ostrich medallion for my main and creme brûlée for dessert. My waiter...

We enjoyed the fabulous sea food in pigalle on the 13th of Feb 2017. Not only was the food delicious, the Jazz was excellent and the service by King Arthur and Tryniore (?) was superb. Thanks for making an excellent evening!

From the main road you could be forgiven for thinking this place is closed, but a journey to the formal entrance at the rear and a huge dining experience is waiting for you. Great food, personable service - and a rare find in this city; live jazz funk music with a place to dance. Recommend the experience without hesitation.

We arrived for dinner and order seafood, it was very good, the service was also great. The food is pricey by cape town standards, but good food.
