good selection of bistro food, not too fancy, but a nice family restaurant with friendly service. Pasta and Grilled platter for two were popular with my family of 4 hungry children.

Very disappointed in this restaurant. Food was of less than stellar quality and the serving staff not interested in serving at all.

A great place for a lunch in the sun or just a place to stop for a coffee or a beer. I had the Club Sandwich which had an Indian slant and was stunning. Lovely place, with great service

Convenient when staying in the hotel, however the food and service is very much average. The Karoo Lamp of 3 large sumptious chops turned out to be 4 skinny ones
