    Food: Bobotie was very dry, and spices not cooked through. I normally love bobotie. Ambience: We booked for outside but was placed inside as it was full. Not acceptable. We chose the place because we wanted to sit outside. Other tables also complained about it. Beautiful place inside. Service: Food took long, and waiter disappeared for long periods. Value: Think it was expensive for a below average experience

    This restaurant made its reputation on traditional Cape dishes and desserts There are only three mauncourses and possibly one dessert left on the menu. And while good, they are fairly pale imitations of the past.
