I was told that South African cuisine is served but there are also lots of Italian menu options. From the appetizers, I really liked the octopus on bread.
Amazing wine, great food list (the lamb chops were to die for), but watch the price! Haha you can walk away shell shocked
Awesome intimate restaurant with great wine selection
The octopus starter was an oral delight (& who doesn't like that?)!
Avocado lobster salad.
South African cuisine and excellent wine bar
Love the staff! Introduce yourself and make yourself at home.Keep your shoes off the table, though.
Great place for a glass of wine with a good friend or on a date.
The Durban mango mousse is light yet intense, a refreshing treat.
$1 oysters are delish but make sure you get 'em before 7!
$1 oysters before 7. Mmmm
The South African wine bar offers something for every drinker.
Romantical, tons of wine, and they take credit cards.
Seems to have no idea about wine at all. Asked about a shiraz and he said it's fruity. That's all. Sigh.
Cute place. But, have never really found a wine that I love.
Got a bottle of wine ($50), 5 tapas for 4 ppl & they said that 5 tapas is min for 2 ppl. Really?? Once we asked to speak to the manager they backed off, but felt like they were trying to rip us off.
South African restaurant and wine bar with surprisingly affordable food from the many ethnicities that influenced the country's cuisine.
Lovely Mozambique tapas style resto
Really delicious good. One of a kind. A gem in the city. Service is frustrating!
The Bon Cap Cabernet and the Gorgonzola stuffed dates are excellent. Definitely good choices.
The wine is good but the service is terrible. The server was rude and rushed us through our drinks. When we asked for change for our bill he rolled his eyes!
Avocado & Rock Lobster Salad is my favourite. Also I reccomend you to try Traditional Malva Pudding. It is apricot sponge cake in a bed of Amarula cream. Yummy...
Reviewers be bitchin', but I've had a pretty exceptional meal! Tuna tartare was perfect, as was grilled eggplant w goat cheese and my carafe of Cab. Also the hostess is beautiful and looks chic.
Do not go here. The worst service/experience I have ever had at a restaurant in NYC. Ever!
My friend's hair caught fire on the way to the restroom while the owner could do in response is laugh/be rude about it. Be careful!
service is horrible and would it kill you to give a real glass for water !
Fantastic after work spot. Great happy hour and appetizers! I mean, bacon-wrapped avocado?! Def need to try the white sangria next time.
Well that was a fail. This place truly does have abysmal service.
Food wasn't great. Not impressed
Incredible! This is a dance in the aisle type of musical. Absolutely loved it
Pretty terrible service. Tonight was our first trip and to add insult to injury, our server added gratuity to the check without telling us. Such a shady move. Save your $$$ and god somewhere else.
Hostess acted like we were intruding. Waitress gave us a pen and asked us to circle what we wanted on the menu. Ordered the mussels, 75% were empty. Octopus was fatty and rubbery. Avoid at all costs!!
Food is terrible...wait staff is horrendous. Except for the woman who seated us. She was exceptional.
Great service!! Nice Happy Hour margaritas and desserts were wonderful. I Recommend the Malva Pudding
Come here for the dollar oysters and lamb shank empanadas! Love the sauce that comes with it too
Terrible service. Hostess is a bi&%*
Coconut sorbet is a must! :)
Just eat biltong and drink wine
An amazing happy hour deal - a glass of viognier and a half dozen of perfectly briny, plump oysters for $13, including tax!
Quite literally the worst food I've ever had. Fish bad, octopus over-cooked... I'm not sure how they're still open. Wine was ok & ambiance was pleasant. Waitress was forgetful and gave poor service.
Aside from the $1 oysters, there is no good reason to come here. The little plates are pretty bad, and the waitress is always miserable.
ordered pineapple juice, got guava. ordered pickled veggies, got banana pepper juice drenched veggies. ordered truffle Mac n cheese (vegetarian), got regular Mac n cheese with bacon bits.
Don't get the truffle Mac and cheese (Kraft Mac covered in bacon bits and tomato paste), or pickled veggies ( just soaked in bell pepper jars)
$1 oysters after 10:30pm every night. big ones, too. couple with a crisp south african white still or sparkling. I'm in heaven.
Try the Tapas
Don't have the seven sisters merlot...awful. But, in general I love this place
Great service. Definitely a great place to unwind after work.
