Critic's review

Simple, classic offerings account for this restaurant’s stayingpower. It serves excellent renditions of the usual cassoulet and coq au vin, and the kitchen has a flair for fresh seafood.

The wine list pays due respect to some of the top wineries in the Stellenbosch region.

Friendly, useful for recommendations and incredibly swift.

The interior is chic and attractive with crisp, white tablecloths. The courtyard area is less formal and at night very romantic.

All the desserts are excellent. (September 2010, CV)

User reviews

  • We decided to try their winter special this evening. What a disappointment! The 'special' is so restricted (only butternut soup and then either a chicken curry or bobotie) - everyone in our party ate off the main dinner menu. The lamb steak was uncuttable - sent back. The potato baskets were inedible - soaking in fat. The fillet steaks were good, but the vegetables were only the tiniest, thinnest scraps hidden under the meat. The place is being renovated but the dining area is in a sad state. No ambience, cold and draughty (although it is a beautiful building with a giant fireplace - positively oozing with potential). It has no heart and the staff seem tired.
