“Come and taste our Sea Bass and Haloumi Salad,” says proprietor Nomzoli Cwane. Who exudes the patient resilience, and tolerance of a people’s person, and of a successful restaurateur. She further explains that you need to understand your customers and to be aware of the dynamics of a restaurant. Nomzoli says she's always had the entrepreneurial spirit and love for food. She is a wife, a mother of three, and a businesswoman, who grew up in the village of Engcobo in the Eastern Cape. They started the business as a family, and have been involved in a franchise for five years now, their business employs 25 people. The restaurant is huge, with a cool interior and regal gold light fittings, lots of glass and a pleasing airiness.
This is a family restaurant where attentive service and elegant décor combine in a busy hum of happy staff and clientele. The experience comes together over awesome food, a sense of style and warmth, for families, parents and children, romantic dates, business networkers, and old friends.
Seafood-based the restaurant is fast becoming famous for its fabulous platters and combos. How does Moorish skewers sound? Chicken skewers rubbed with Middle Eastern spice and served with a dipping sauce. I am already hungry just thinking about it.
Meat lovers will definitely go mad over those succulent rib eye stakes grilled to customer's specifications, and fabulous prawn tacos. With a wide variety of sides to choose from. The seafood pasta is the best ever made, don't believe us? Go taste it for yourself!
