Fodor's Review

It's hard to believe this unassuming stone cottage serves some of the best food in town. The menu focuses on seafood, but don't let that put you off the non-seafood options like smoked pork belly and seafood curry with freshly made roti. There's also a chalkboard, which displays daily specials, devised according to what's fresh and in-season. Need something to wash down your meal? The wine list has some excellent wines, including options from the nearby Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, like the Ataraxia Sauvignon Blanc, a fresh and zesty wine. The building which dates back to around 1870 has an understated interior with simple tables and chairs and whitewashed walls.
