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

    This is my first time at the restaurant and I definitely go back. Great service, and the food was excellent. I ordered the burger, it was delicious, although I would preferred it to be a little less salty and served on a plate, I'm personally not a fan of being served food on a wooden board. The waitress kindly brought me a plate when I asked for it. Can't fault the service at all really excellent staff.
