Foursquare Tips

  • Very eclectic international food in an old biscuit mill, in the shabby-chic district of Woodstock, Cape Town. Great selection of SA wines. Tasting Menu is a good option.
  • Comparable with the best of NY, HK and London, at a fifth of the price, even though expensive for South Africa. Made with intelligence, love, audacity and creativity!
  • Book at least three months in advance!! Although there's always a table available for lunch. Best place in Cape Town!! 100%
  • Have the chocolate for dessert. It's what chocolate aspires to be when it grows up.
  • If you're on the Pot Luck Club side of the restaurant, the Asian Tartare and the Asian Beef Fillet come HIGHLY recommended! Yummmm!!!
  • The crew worked in complete synergy and with a smile on their faces, simply excellent service.
  • Quite small and packed so a reservation is required for dinner, you might be lucky at lunch time.
  • One of The best Restaurant in Cape Town. You cant MISS IT! Dinner is diferent than lunch. But two are amazing. You Need to take the luxury of good food when you are in holidays.
  • Mad food! Take the smoked beef, you'll be amazed. Very, very nice wine list as well. Love the crew, vibe and venue.
  • Absolutely perfect meal. Wow.
  • Everything was fantastic. Be sure to book well in advance and if you can't get a table keep calling to see if anyone cancels...and maybe just show up to see if there is space :)
  • Try the lunch. It's easier to get a reservation and it's only two dishes smaller. I suspect the dinner might be too filling though.
  • Creative tasting menu. Lovely atmosphere. Excelent service. Got a table for one, tuesday for lunch, no previous booking, just went in and asked. Many thanks to the manager!
  • Wonderful experience! I did the 10 course tasting with the wine pairing! It was awesome.
  • Set course menu amazing
  • Food that in itself is worth a trip to SA. Go for the wine menu with the tasting menu
  • This feedback is not positive unfortunately. There are many restaurants in the world and there are many good ones. As these guys found a bit of success they become very snob. This could kill them.
  • Yonke into........
