    Food was fresh and tasty. Unfortunately they did not have our preference of wine available as set out on the menu. We had to settle for our third choice. They also ran out of mayonnaise for my sushi. Sushi was fresh and amazingly tasty. Very well prepared. VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF. AMAZING PLAY AREA FOR KIDS.

    Must say it was a bit of a disappointment coming back to eat. Was here on my birthday and everything was awesome. Had sushi tonight and it's a 10/10 for me but then i asked for their Tomahawk 750g and sadly not available (again) and decided on the T-Bone 500g. Took ages to get to the table but had to send it back as it was med rare and i asked for a med. Then the basting had this very weird taste.. couldn't place it. After it came back i enjoyed the steak. As for was seriously lacking. Waited for ages for her to come around. Nonetheless it was an enjoyable evening with a perfect Stella draught. Please pay some attention to service as this makes or breaks an evening out

    We stopped for dinner and it was an excellent choice! The steak was cooked to perfection. The chicken schnitzel was tender and juicy. The Greek salad was delicious.. The portions were huge, even by American standards! Beer was very cold. Wait staff was very attentive and friendly. A+

    We ALWAYS have an awesome time here! The staff is welcoming and friendly. The service is excellent. This is the local get-together place of Swellendam. If you're passing through - you have to try their T-bone steak or pizzas!
