    Great food, wines and live music. There are no tips to leave. It has to be one of the greatest success stories in the entertainment / dining out for foreigners in South Africa .

    Waitress advised the deal was no longer available and didn't seem at all apologetic, but instead very 'matter of fact' about it. Wait staff seems arrogant. Let's see what the food tastes like.

    Special doesn't exist - I was told it had 'expired'. Have suggested strongly that they remove it ASAP

    If you get here, you have to try the Zimbabwean Dovi - chicken and vegetables in a peanut sauce served over rice.

    Service was better than Tripadvisor reviews led us to believe and the food was good (if spendy.) The Foursquare wine special is a lie, however.

    Don't bother trying to claim the special. "it was only valid last year..."
