“We went there twice”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Just when you think you have eaten the worlds best lamb shank, you discover it could be even better. We just had to go back the next evening.

Reviewed 28 October 2013

This restaurant has all the factors needed for success. Good honest food, respectable sevice, original decoration and just a great atmosphere. This is the type of restaurant that makes discovering South Africa fantastic. All the best of luck to the new chef/owner. My family and i had a great evening. thank you!

“Beautiful old house, great food and nice bakery”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

We ate at this restaurant on a Saturday night and it was fairly crowded. I believe it is a good idea to make reservations which fortunately for us we did.

The ambience is very nice and you eat almost by candlelight. Attentive service and excellent food. Good menu selections. We had the yellow fin fish and the bobooty and both were very good. The salad was also very good. The chef came out and talked to the customers which was a nice touch.

The bakery and store sells amazing bread and excellent desserts at very reasonable prices. The are also other items to buy such as jams etc.

I would return to this restaurant again and I would definitely browse through their bakery and shop.

“Karoo Tour”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

What an excellent place to relax and eat. The staff were very friendly and their service was very good. The food was well prepared, tasteful and presented in a way that you might think you are somewhere in Paris. Also good value for money. Will most definitely go back.
