Fodor's Review

Chef-owner Marc Friederich is a foodie with an instinctive feel for what will work. And work his restaurant does. It's consistently full, consistently interesting, and always a pleasure to eat in. What to choose from? There's a Lebanese mezze for starters made up of mouthwatering dips, bite-size spinach and feta pies, and warm pitas for scooping, or you could opt for Marc's fish soup with a dash of ouzo and aioli crostini. For entrées there's organic beef done on a lava-stone

grill, paella, or Franschoek trout with vegetables and a lemony sauce. Children are also well looked after—there's spaghetti with tomato sauce, a choice of burgers with fries and vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce as part of the deal for a very reasonable R50. Marc also serves as a sommelier, so the wine list is comprehensive and he can help you with food-and-wine pairings.
