Description: A shabby chic French Cafe serving European and South African Foods with a strong emphasis on Organic, Fresh and Modern Dishes. A large selection of vegetarian, seafood and low carb dishes are served. Our menu is seasonal and our blackboard reflects just that! Ask about our fresh line fish delivered that day by our local commercial fisherman or the fresh vegetables delivered by our organic local veg supplier...

We went there some months ago and we have enjoyed the food and the service, even if we found that the prices were a bit high. We came back and the price was still high, but the food was without interest and the service extremely slow. Perhaps was it because we arrived late (around 8:pm)? It would be the only excuse.

It is in a little room like a front room of a house but has the most Fantastic food. Cooked and served fresh, Worth a visit. We had the place to ourselves which made it even better

Decided to try out this restaurant again as heard it had made significant quality improvements.

The service was okay but steak was a bad cut, tasteless, hard to cut, chewy and may have been frozen for some time as it was watery, the lamb shank was way undercooked as it was even tough to be cut from the bone and tasted and smelled fatty. The location looks great and quaint but the noise from the filling station across the road and pub next door is excessive and is quite disturbing. Many better places to spend your money and tasty food too.

Be sure to give this one a miss!

Pleasantly surprised by both the menu and the ambiance. Thoroughly enjoyed a visit here and was delighted that the waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu so we were well informed before making our choices. The quality of the food was superb, the wine was as good as any and the service was creditable. Would definitely go to this restaurant again.
