Enjoyed the vegetarian menu for FNB Restaurant week. Perhaps a little less salt on the risotto. 2 tone soup was excellent. Ideal portion sizes. Great service. Good beer selection.

Food of the highest quality, yet reasonably priced. All courses were perfectly balanced, vegetables perfectly cooked, and well seasoned. Service was friendly and professional. A great final dinner in Namibia, and the best of our trip.
