Meal was delicious, service and drinks were excellent. Really nice outdoor area. Only thought is one member of staff, I think the manager, probably a little more impatient and brusque than he needed to be. Genuinely though a delicious meal. Big love

Visited and stayed overnight. Restaurant was well managed and service was excellent. Restaurant has Souh African leanings and specialised in steaks. We shared a fabulous porterhouse and a great bottle of pinotage. Friendly staff, felt covid secure, and we were well looked after.
