What pleasure this was…certainly a good place to visit after work on a lazy Thursday evening. We arrived a little early and was shown to the upstairs bar area to enjoy a refreshing drink before we commence with dinner.
For an establishment which only opened its doors at the end of November, they certainly were busy. An eclectic mix of Greek, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern Cuisine, there is something for everyone, and I personally loved the large selection of vegetarian options.
The idea is to order a few options from the too share menu and then select your protein, but we just did our own thing and they didn’t frown upon it.
From a menu we choose the following dishes.
TAHINI CAULIFLOWER (V) – Baharat spice, herby lemon dressing, hummus, almonds slithers – R 95
FIRE ROASTED BABY GEM LETTUCE – parmesan, white anchovy, capers, lemon vinaigrette – R 85
BREAD BASKET & OLIVES – R 25
COAL FIRED ROTISSERIE
100 grams per portion
ROASTED LAMB SHOULDER WITH PITA – tzatziki, tomato, cured onion – R105 100g / R175 200g
CHICKEN THIGHS WITH PITA – carrot hummus, tomato, cured onion – R95 100g / R165 200g
MEAT & FISH
CRISPY MEDITERRANEAN SARDINES & AIOLI – R 90
Its very hard to decide on a clear favourite, everything was amazing, even the Sardines which is not my favourite but one of Jason’s and according to him one of the best…
We were not surprised to find out who the chef was part of the Springbok Team, they have some serious skills with the open flames. The portions are large, very good value for money. Presentation of each dish was impeccable.
The bar has a very large selection of whiskey and of course no whiskey bar would be complete without a cigar selection and they have that box ticked too. I must add they have some yummy cocktails and I already have a favourite “The Diamond Ring”, because after all, “diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”
Waitstaff, Managers and Hostess were all very attentive and you felt looked after even though the restaurant was filled.
We already planning our next visit, hope you will too…Let us know what your thoughts are.
We are planning a giveaway for the best feedback and pic received, remember to #jarphotoct to be in the running.
