We visited here as part of a college trip. We came for lunch first. There was a wide range of food available which everyone liked. We came back the next day for breakfast as we enjoyed it that much.

Haven't tried anything else, but the pizzas are definitely delicious! Vibe is really great too, love the atmosphere - great place to catch up with friends and bring your kiddos too as there is a play area for them.

Da Loose Mangoose is a family restaurant, the food was good and the waiters were friendly. Sundays they have live performances, which is quite nice.

Relaxed family country style restaurant with a wide variety of menu items for everyone to enjoy. Wonderful outside seating under the Acacia trees and large children's play area. There is a cosy pub with large TV that is a favorite with the locals and stylish indoor area with an open fireplace for those cold and rainy days.
