Once you get over the disappointment of a limited menu, you get to realize the food offers a modern and modified shisa-nyama experience meant to accompany a social /partying occasion. The Prawn Tempura with Marie Rose Sauce is a perfect start, but the surprise is the tasty grilled chicken roulade with a Neapolitan sauce, baby broccoli stem and poached grilled pear. Mains boast meat platters including chicken wings, boerewors, beef and lamb cutlets with sides like infused pap, chakalaka and jeqe (steamed bread). Alternatively go for the herb crusted lamb rack with creamy gorgonzola mash, grilled veg, pea mint puree and garlic butter rosemary sauce. The only dessert in the menu is the Rooibos vanilla flavoured Panna Cotta with a biscuit crumble, berry compote and chocolate shavings.
It’s all about craft cocktails and expensive spirits promoting a superior drinking lifestyle, but inclusive with a very compact wine list for convenience and beer and non-alcoholic beverages.
Attentive and professional.
The charming dark brown hue of the vintage décor warms the inside, while the trendy and lounge-y outside roof top setting boasts beautiful panoramic views of the night city. The dim lighting in the inside corner may be romantic, but it makes it difficult to see your food in perfect light.
A night out in town where you’re up for some clubbing or live performances, accompanied by beautiful night views of the city.
