Just a short note to say “Thank you”. What a wonderful experience we had at your restaurant. We expected 100 guests and 136 pitched.
Your manager, Titch, and staff were an absolute pleasure to work with - they had to set up 3 extra tables and not once complained. The food was great, our international guests complimented us on the choice of the menu and restaurant. The location of the restaurant was perfect, the doctors could just walk across the street from the hotel to the restaurant, no hassle with transfers etc.
A special thank you to the band, they were incredible. I can definitely recommend your restaurant to anyone. We will come back for more

Words cannot begin to express the gratitude for the event we hosted for the Jazz Festival. I will be honest and say, this is the best event I have done for the company since I joined them in 2005 and the best part is that this is the best event that Group level have experienced.
A special thank you to Kurt, Mabs , Titch, Pumla, the band and DJ for the special treatment and hospitality. They really went out of their way to ensure we had an experience like no other. I even got a fresh plate of Sushi made when all was done after registration - that was very special. Thank you Kurt! The staff were efficient, friendly and very polite. The security at the entrance were great. The food was delicious and more than enough, the drinks were well received. The whole event was just superb. We have set very high standards for the event. It will only get better.
You out did yourself. Thank you for your exceptional hospitality. Looking forward to hosting more events there.
