Don’t get me wrong, service was good so was the food- but a lot of our choices were sold out already (line fish, starter and sparkling water!!) - so it was slightly disappointing. The air con was too cold. But altogether still nice.

After reading such great reviews of the place, we were excited for a delicious dining experience. Well, we were extremely disappointed and from the service to the food- it was nothing special. Our inexperienced waiter left us waiting 15 minutes before drink refills, the food...More

We managed to get a walk in reservation and was really pleased with the quality of the food and service. We both had fish meals both of which were presented well and tasted superb. The cocktails were definitely worth a try.

Classy. Excellent service! Beautiful views! The food is well presented and is very very good. It's certainly more affordable to have lunch here than dinner! I really don't understand why there food is so ridiculously expensive. This is not Joburg or Cape Town!
