    What a wonderful treat it was to eat at the Oyster Box Grill Room and be treated like 5 star guests. The food was absolutely delicious best meal I've enjoyed for a long time. Beautifully presented, impeccably balanced, perfection on a plate. The ambiance was perfect as well with a very soft, barely audible background music which allowed us to chat with our fellow guests (something that most modern restaurants forget is the reason for dining out!). We absolutely loved the hors d'oeuvre trolley which gave us the chance to sample a number of different starters and my dessert, Fruits of the Forest, was stunning!!

    The wine we have ordered was not good and the salmon dish was a little dry.

    Not a good experience. We made a reservation through the restaurant's website. This had not arrived in the restaurant. This can happen. We got told the restaurant was fully booked. After checking with the front desk for alternatives, the maitre'd came to tell us there was a cancellation and he arranged us a table. This sounded great, wouldn't it be that at the end of the evening more than 30% of the tables had not been used.
    We ordered the specially recommanded native oysters. These were not rinsed proparely and therefor full of sand. The dish was replaced correctly, but now my wife and myself had to eat separatly from eachother.
    As a main course we had the Chateau Briand, sliced at the table. Unfortunatly the nice tender meat was not sliced against the grain, which made the meat very tough. Something a restaurant of this level should clearly know. We did not comment on this.
    As a possitive note we have to mention the staff is very friendly and attentive in their service also the sommelier was very knowledgable. However this could not make up for the evening

    Absolutely amazing. The atmosphere, the music, the food, and most of all which was highly highly appreciated in the current South Africa was the service-Zama gave to us.
