I seldom eat pork, let alone order it at a restaurant, but I would do backflips for their crispy roasted pork belly. Served with the sweetest red cabbage compote and the smoothest smoked potato puree, this dish has it all! And that's only the beginning; you are spoilt for choice with this menu. Couple that with an impressive wine list and a vibe ideal for a romantic dinner or a relaxed catch-up, this restaurant definitely makes for a superb evening out.
Excellent food, excellent service and a great ambience. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants to eat at in Umhlanga. The food is always of top standard and quality and presented as if you are at a 5* fine dining restaurant - carefully going over the pass past the eye of the head chef.
