    This was a superb meal - inventive, playful, accomplished, using local ingredients, and (very) good value for money. We also enjoyed experiencing some non-familiar local wines, which was very welcome. Would happily recommend to anyone - the best meal we had during our visit to Cape Town!

    This is the second time I have enjoyed this restaurant, and it did not disappoint. The staff are absolutely amazing, and the food is top notch. Thank you for the milo and cookies after the meal, it was such a lovely gesture and a fun way to the end the meal!

    By far the best tasting menu we have ever had. This is our go-to restaurant for any special occasion. We were blessed with homemade jam from the kitchen as a gift when we left. Thank you.
