Sunday afternoon wine and jazz in the courtyard is great! Chill in summer or winter and enjoy the food and good company!

Popped inf or a quick dessert, cake and coffee. Top class desserts and cakes. The atmosphere was cozy especially next to the fireplace.

We had such a super lunch at Possums today. The food was excellently prepared and beautifully served. I had the duck and my husband had the calamari, which we both loved. The portions are generous and very tasty with great flavours. Our waitress was fantastic too, and was there every time we needed anything without being overbearing. We sat in the outdoor area under the canvas umbrellas as it was a perfect day, and it was so relaxing and almost felt like we were in the country somewhere. We are so impressed with Possums and will definitely be back.

Service was attentive and charming. The setting much improved compared with that of a few years back.
2 of us enjoyed the excellent duck with a sauce that enhanced, not overwhelmed, the bird: could have done with a little bit more of the sauce!
Good wine list, although as often the case in South Africa, the mark-up on the retail price of the Haute Cabriere seemed excessive.

The outside area is lovely and a fine mist cools you off of a hot day.
The service was slow but polite.
We had small meals but somehow the bill was too large! Still a great spot!
