Made a booking but came 15 minutes late and the owner says sorry. Will never ever return here. Absolutely no needs for customers maybe?

Baby lamb racks were really tender with great Sauvignon sauce. Lamb shoulder were crisp on the... More

The place is done wonderfully. Love the ambience and feel of it. Makes you forget you are in a bustling township. A definite sanctuary
