Had the pan fried scallops appetizer and pork chop for main course... both were very, very good.

Located in the middle of Lawyersville, with Lovells situated above it, this place serves not only genuine South African fare, but the selection of wines is Mind Boggling.

I had a roast loin of Springbok and it was superb. As my guest was having fish, we decided on a white wine the...more
