Lovely food- helpful staff.
Good wine list.
Had to keep reminding them we wanted tap not bottled water

First visit - overall, a great experience. The location is a bit ho-hum and the restaurant is understated - a long thin room with a rather brown decor and the windows aren't large - so first impressions a bit off-putting. But the place is saved by attentive, cheerful and efficient staff; an interestingly varied menu; an exciting South African wine list ... and all the dishes were memorably good. Creme Brulee a highlight, but to be fair the potato-free salmon fishcake was outstanding too; and the king prawn and melon starter was delicious.

Unfortunately I was quite disappointed with the lunch and overall service. It felt very disjointed, with different people attending to us. There was a mix up with water and guests who had still water in their glass were topped up with sparkling water mixing the 2 and vice versa which is pretty basic in my view. There were not enough olives and bread brought to the table for all 7 guests. The aubergine starters were a little warm and didn't seem cooked through. The main was nice however. It's a shame when I brought clients to the venue as it can be a little embarrassing despite the clients politely saying they enjoyed it. I've been a number of times to this venue and am sorry to say that there has been a definite gradual decline in quality of food and service over the course of a couple of years so I won't be returning with or without clients.

Good food and good selection of nice Southafrican wines by the glass. Extra plus for the live music and the cheese room.
