The starters absolutely blew us away and created a big expectation around the mains. Sadly the mains did not meat up to the expectation, the short rib could have done with a little more time and the salmon wasnt so great.. But wow those starters! The service wasn't bad just a really long wait between starters and mains, we were actually so hungry by the time mains eventually came out that we dug right in forgetting to take pics. All together a good restaurant

A business hotel restaurant so bring an Easter weekend - it was quiet. Great wine recommendation - Altima from Cape of Good Hope. Food was great. Short rib was the least preferred. My veg option was really good.
