The fusion Chef, Shane Sauvage, has even made his legacy known in Stellenbosch. I have been told this by my daughter who currently studies there, and aparantly it is a favourite among students when on holiday in Pretoria.

As for my own experience, I was firstly baffled by the friendly welcome we received as my wife and I entered the door. This was then followed by a refreshing welcome drink and the menu practically performed for us.
after deciding on the Afro Parision salad for my wife, and the Aztec Mushrooms for myself, the great service continued by keeping our glasses full and the conversation flowing.
Before we knew it, the startes were on the table, accompanied by fresh home made bread.These delicious startes were followed by an intermediate sorbet, which I was told by our waiter, is used to cleanse the palette.
Then came the main course of my perfecly prepared San Antonio Fillet(flamed at the table and served with a pepper sauce), and my wifes Lobster tails, which were purely orgasmic.

All in all, I must say that it was one of the most memorable and tasteful meals I have ever had!
Sadly, we could not find space for dessert as the portions are very generous, but we have already made a date to return and have the dessert first.

Thank You La Pentola for making our wedding anniversary a night to remember and relive."
