A bizarre upstairs atmosphere with thick velvet curtains - reminiscent of a speakeasy - was a bit strange, but the food and wine selection were stunning. Steaks, seafood, salad and more prepared a thousand ways. We were particularly impressed by the wine selection. Recommended.

Margarita's owner George welcomes us every time we go. The service is consistently excellent and the food perfectly prepared every time. The wine list and the menus are extensive and will surely more than satisfy any diner. Definitely our favourite in Bloemfontein.
