A serious food and wine establishment. Superb cooking and fine wine list, in gracious surroundings. I was fortunate to be there during the annual offal festival, and had wonderful chicken liver parfait with port-soaked figs and equally delicious sweetbreads with mushrooms, capers and chives.

Southern Africa is certainly not the place to eat light meals. Very good food, and very good service, but, please, offer two portion sizes... Good for anywhere in the world!More

This restaurant is in a pleasantly converted old building - the atmosphere is chic however and well designed. The cuisine is excellent. I especially recommend the cheese souffle, and the roast duck. Of course it being the Cape the wine list is impressive. Go there,...More

Enjoy creative contemporary cooking in a visually exciting venue. With its historic Table Mountain stone and old brick that dates back to the 18th century, architect Leon Saven's design is complemented by glass, concrete and exposed ducting. Cabbage motif chandeliers and salt dishes, fine table appointments and impeccable service reflect outstanding attention to detail. The menu alters daily, using the freshest local produce and combines unusual flavours to excite the palate of the discerning diner. A boutique wine list which is very reasonably priced.
