It is part of the romantic Queens Hotel complex and has a relaxed feel. Very good for light lunches and breakfasts.

Pleasant spacious restaurant. The staff were very friendly and efficiently. I had rack of lamb, which was 😋 cooked to perfection and very nicely presented with vegetables. Reasonably priced.

Stayed in the hotel for one night and not sorry that we gave the local restaurants a miss and settled for in-house. Delicious meal - ostrich steak complemented by a super red wine.

Celebrate here in old world style. Drinks at the long bar. Then Caesar salad and calamari followed by beef fillet and lamb racks and pudding. Yum.

My wife and I went to this restaurant. I thought the name is 'Die Kolonie'. I had the Sirloin Venison with sweet potato and it was delicious. The prise is a bit more than average, but you get what you pay for. For us it was worth while.

We ate here for 2 consecutive nights and really enjoyed it. Service was great, the decor of the room is, well, colonial and had a warm feel on a cold night. There is a nice bar area to have a pre-dinner G&T or a post dinner relaxing night-cap. Menu is varied and there was only one dish out of all... More
