We are fast becoming regulars here - the food is consistently good and transports us back to Greece every time! White wine, tapas and a sunny afternoon is all you need! Service and food are both excellent!

The restaurant is spotlessly clean and the fact that it's well patronized, morning noon and night is testament to its quality. It may be called a wine bar but the menu has everything from sushi to lamb chops. Highly recommended

Most South African shops and restaurants are closed on Christmas Day, because it’s a holiday, few are open . Generally hotels are open for lunch and accept non residents for lunch.
