The view is breath taking and the food top class. The presentation of the food was mouth watering. Do not miss out on the deserts.

The location is amazing and the staff very friendly and attentive. Though my starter was amazing, the prices are fierce and the main meal not as outstanding.
R200 for an average steak a little on the high side.

Thank you for your comment .I would just like to point out that we only have one steak on the menu which sells for R200 and that is our seafood fillet which is topped with prawns,calamari .mussels ect. Hence the price.
