Outstanding "Chicken Peri Peri" with fries and spinach salad for 20€. Excellent beer. They have two kinds of beer with scents of fruits (watermelon and orange, respectively, afaik), both of which taste fresh but not sweet -- awesome. The owner is a great host, very hospital, made us feel welcome.

Maybe the 5 for the food isn't fair. But I came for the best chicken in the country. But with the change of the chef apparently, that was no longer the case. They changed the recipe completely. They just poored some hot sauce and that was that. Even put koriander on my chicken!!!

I ordered the beef stew, and it was really average... very fatty meat! But the people were SO nice and loved the beer and ambiance. I think I just had a bad plate.

The food unfortunately was quite mediocre. Could include even more SA classics on the menu.
