It was a worthwhile visit and the food was good. Nicely decorated too. The downside is the set menu and I found the owner not too friendly. the restaurant came highly recommended and I therefore expected so much more and was a bit disappointed.

The menu never changes (soup or fish salad, roast lamb, bobotie, chicken pie and occasionally lamb and feta pie, malva pudding) and it's as if you are in someone's house. So small and quaint. But the food is always excellent and the hosts always welcoming....More
