Our starters we're delicious, our mains were burnt, tough and without flavour. Food also took over 1.5hrs to arrive. Waitress kept forgetting items ordered.
Hi, awesome food, can't beat the spectacular view. Excellent service, awesome experience.
My friend and I had a fabulous time and enjoyed the scrumptious food. Attentive and friendly staff. Excellent service overall 👌
The main course was outstanding. Wonderful service and such a beautiful setting
Food was average, not worth the price. Experience was not worth it. Service wasn’t great.
Cuisine: Steak, South African
Sip sundowners on the terrace while our chefs prepare elevated reinterpretations of regional favorites – think dry-spice–rubbed sea bass or the best grilled burger you’ve ever tasted – that use fresh, of-the-moment ingredients.
