Food ok but service appalling. Completely ignored the whole lunch and even had to go and find glasses for ourselves.

From starters to deserts, including wines and service, everything was perfect. The ambiance in the restaurant was also really plaisant and prices are definitely cheap regarding the quality. Probably our best restaurant in South Africa during our 3 weeks trip. I recomand.
