If you want a safe place for a meat place, it's not a bad option, just don't expect fireworks... the food is good but not outstanding.

This restaurant reminded me of the steakhouse in St. Peter burg. Seafood is good but meat is better. Wine selection is wide and value for money. Today the t-bone is on offer at 500 random for a 500 gym cut.

Had our last meal in SA and it was really nice. The restaurant was really busy with some large parties so getting the food was a little slow but nothing to really worry about. Good prices, great staff.

We had just gotten in from Kruger and were exhausted. The server was uninterested but available. The menu is odd...gives the price in multiple currencies but doesn’t describe the meals. The burger and fries were good.More
