This is not a small-plate restaurant. Portions are generous and rich: keep this in mind when plotting out your meal. Three courses may defeat eat even the heartiest of appetites.
The menu changes daily according to produce availability, and is displayed on chalkboards on the wall. The starters are seemingly light, but the portions are sizey. The West Coast mussels (R95), served in a creamy white wine sauce, is a well-rounded dish; an ample starter for two. The trout gravadlax (R95) is light and fresh. The dill mustard dressing, pickled beetroot dressing and rye bread adds a needed tang.
Main options range from roast aubergine-and-tomato ragout (R130) and roast Kingklip (R170) to rabbit leg and Impala loin (both R200). The kudu (R195), braised in red wine and served with bacon and root vegetables is, as expected, incredibly rich and, surprisingly, a touch under seasoned. On the contrary, the venison parpardelle (R145) is unevenly seasoned, with a number of forkfulls overly salted.
If you have room for dessert, the likes of a flourless chocolate tart or artisan cheeseboard are on offer.
Expect an extensive wine list, with a pleasing number of options by the glass (R50 white, R55 red).
