Small, intimate and a great menu with lots of fish and meat - the South Africans love meat!. Best and biggest oysters I have ever had. Hendrick, our waiter was brilliant with a great line in humour.

Food was excellent and the portions more than what we could handle. The waiter was very passionate about his job and provided really great service. I'll recommend this to anyone who appreciates good sea food.
