    The food was amazing. My German guest, who is 50-odd and well-travelled, even said it was the best meal he had ever had! The mix of flavours was original and exquisite, and the presentation was beautiful. Congratulations to the chief. We were also very impressed by the Naude White blend 2009, which was a wonderful wine. I’ve never had an 11-year old white before, and this one was complex and youthful at the same time. The food and the chefs, and their customers, deserve a bigger and better restaurant. The acoustics in this one are poor, pressing other customers to raise their voices and making it a strain to hear one’s friends. While impressed by the patron's passion, I, and my guests, did not want to hear a lecture about the food and the pairings. We wanted to savour the flavours and the artistry and enjoy each other’s company. Customers vary, and I hope that, in the future, there will be more empathy. For myself, I don’t like high chairs/tables, which belong in a bar, not a classy restaurant; nor do I like ‘banquet seats’, which sag very quickly. Plain tables and chairs are best. Actually, it was looking at the seating arrangement from the outside that had previously discouraged me from entering the restaurant. This is a shame, because the food really was incredible.

    The overall experience is very good. Thank you for a quality restaurant meal offering- all of the below suggestions are enhancements to a very good experience overall, one that stands out in the Joburg restaurant environment. * Many of the dishes are very accomplished. The ostrich tartare and squid ink risotto stand out as highlights. * I would omit the tasteless and rather ugly green cake from the mango and mint dessert. * The waiters need to be trained a little more thoroughly- on both my visits there I felt that they mumble too much, as if they are embarrassed or lack confidence, and it is hard to hear phrases like “Amuse Bouche” or any of the ingredients. They also know too little about the wines. * I would also suggest that the 4-course menu is too much food for women. Can you not have a 3-course menu and add a course as an additional supplement For those with bigger appetites. * I also don't want to be obliged to have a dessert, which is what the waiters make clear. I seldom eat dessert and would be happy with three savoury plates of food.
