The à la carte menu changes daily, fusing French, Mediterranean and Asian styles. Start with octopus served with black rice, fennel salad and pea segments.

Noteworthy mains are the sea bass served with veggies and a saffron crème sauce, and the kudu fillet with gnocchi, asparagus, baby butternut and aniseed au jus.

For dessert it’s hard to pass up the date pudding with hazelnut praline, vanilla ice cream and butterscotch sauce or the smooth and fragrant lemongrass panna cotta.

An extensive wine list and a sommelier and drinks pairing are on offer, on request.

Friendly and knowledgeable. Booking and pre-payment are essential, and dietary restrictions can be accommodated.

A warm and welcoming gem of a restaurant, with elegant antique furniture and chandeliers. Pre-dinner drinks are served overlooking the pool and lush garden.

Best for…
Romantic dates and long lunches with friends.
