We had one of the best meals in southern cape town with great service and views. The prices are very fair and the food quality delivers in spades. Great Thai seafood curry and Fillet was sublime too. We will be back. Great job!

We booked a sunday brunch here for after my son's baptism. What a great choice we made. The manager and staff were incredibly accommodating and the views are just breathtaking. The food was great too. We would happily be back for another meal

There were some bad reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. Stunning views, nice calm atmosphere and a good variety on the menu. The waitress was not very confidant but still efficient. No Pimms or my next best choice and the creme brule on the menu...More
