In Cape Town for two weeks over the Xmas/New Years period, had drinks at this place and seemed like a great spot so we made a booking 10 people for New Years Eve. We turned up at 8 that night and initially they couldn't find our booking but was quickly solved and we were seated upstairs for dinner. Upstairs area is very quiet and removed from the atmosphere downstairs so we were hoping we'd be able to get a few hours downstairs to see in the New Year. Despite it being a set menu and not many people there, the food took forever and the drinks services as terrible. You sobered up between drinks it took so long and the food was average at best when it came out. Very similar comments from hose seated around us. Dessert only came out at 1130, after being seated there since 8! We left the desserts and tried to sort out bill. We made our disappointment known and still they wanted a tip! Luckily we had a South African lad with us and he made it clear it wasn't going to happen! The downstairs bar area seems good, but our New Years dinner with a group that had travelled all the way from Aus was terrible. Luckily just made the fireworks with minutes to spare. Improvement needed at this place!!
