  • This is a special haven for those who appreciate warm jazzy vibes, dim lighting and a cozy atmosphere. I feel like I'm in a good friend's home rather than a restaurant. Their alcohol menu is quite vast but the food is limited to light snacks and boards, with one hot meal of the day. The food I've tried is simple yet delicious, and the staff are warm and pleasant. I intend on being a regular guest.
  • Friendly bar service, a fab buzzing outside area, though it could be a tad bigger but security person is friendly enough, and an adequate intimate theatre space upstairs where I watched a funny & relative play- Five Women Wearing The Same Dress. Will definitely revisit when I'm back in The Cape.
