“spectacular setting”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Wow what a beautiful setting for a lazy sunday lunch! The food was great and I especially loved the rocky road nougat dessert. The angus beef was good however nothing special. My husband had the fish and that was something different and very yummy. The wines are well priced and the staff are able to give good guidance on the best wines to accompany your dishes. We completed our meal with great double espresso.

It is a pricy experience but one well worth the expense.

“Great food, stunning setting - pity about the service...”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

I treated a group of people there for dinner recently. The setting was absolutely stunning and I liked the unfussy, unpretentious atmosphere. We went for the wine pairing and were all very excited about the experience after reading such amazing reviews.

The manager/head waitress was very good and it would have been a perfect evening had she waited our table all evening, however, the waiters in general seems rather clueless and not bothered about delivering a good service - bring the wrong food to the table, forgetting drinks orders and seeming generally disinterested.

I am usually quite relaxed about service as I have found the servive in Cape Town, in general, is not good; however, at a restaurant which is meant to be a 'top 10', i expect the full package - good service is such an impoertant part of a '5 star' dining experience......

This said, the food was sublime and I loved the open plan kitchen and watching thje chef and his team at work - looking very calm whilst creating the most incredible and beatuful looking dishes.

Would I go back - probably not, unless they do take-aways.

“Stunning site with gorgeous food”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us for its great food and views. We were especially excited to see what a fellow Scot could conjur up in his kitchen. Mr. Jardine is a genius and artist with his food. Rarely have I seen such lovely plating- anywhere.
Great friendly service and our best experience in our 2 month visit to South Africa! We can't wait to return!
