Prices are steep, it must be said, but portions are above average and quality is exremely consistent. So it's a case of asking yourself if you're willing to pay R120 for a seafood pasta packed with fresh clams and linefish or if you would rather pay R80 down the road and get some recycled marinara sauce. The beef tagliata (sirloin strips, flash-fried and served rare) with chilli, garlic and olive oil (R115) is a personal favourite and the penne arrabiata (R95) is also a winner. Also, watch out for little "freebies" that they like to throw in. In winter, they will often bring you a decent portion of their soup of the day for a taste and in summer homemade nougat and ice-cream or fresh watermelon is brought with the bill. These little touches, along with piping-hot homemade bread on the tables, make a big difference in my opinion.
As you would expect, their wine list is top-notch with some big names sitting comfortably alongside boutique estates. There are plenty of options available by the glass.
It's a good spot, aimed at locals and businessmen. They have lots of regulars which is always a good sign. Check it out.
