We arrived here and were recommended that we eat at this restaurant. Our waitress Megan was a delight and the food was delicious. We truly had a good time next to the river and listening to the lovely music. Truly romantic and tasty.

We had a lovely Sunday Lunch next to the Vaal River whilst seated outside under trees. The restaurant waiters run up and down the embankment without complaining at all. Tranquility and good food at its best.
