Their website does state:

Dress Code: Smart Casual. Right of admission is at discretion of management.

Is showing your belly button considered "Smart Casual"?
IMO no.

Wasn't that another restaurant/incident with the chick in the bikini top?


Fck knows, it's a non story anyway. She was probably loud which was why she was thrown out, going on the video.

Going on the video... she is very far from loud for me.

You must be one of those 2/10 would not bang dudes

The steak wasn’t great at all. To add insult to injury, my wife was told she could not enter so we had to leave to go to Paranga where the service was significantly better.

No where does it state a dress code. Not on your social media pages or at your venue. Front of house staff were really rude regarding letting us eat at their establishment wearing a bikini top and jeans. Firstly you're situated at a beach what do you expect people to wear. Extremely rude and will never recommend this place to anyone. Go next door, much better staff, ambiance and food.

I didn't call her ugly, she looks like she'd be good for a night (the first one that is, the second one I wouldn't piss on), she does come across as a bit loud. You're a moffie though, you're all loud so you wouldn't understand.

I'm really not seeing it. Maybe someone else can comment

I think these latest cases has more to do with the influencer trend which is happening all over Cape Town and the farms. Ever since the day people realised that they could monetise social media, these self-esteemed social celebrities regard themselves as product ambassadors. They go to places to sell themselves, and the venue. I am sure that there are some photo-opportunistic pics, and advantages being taken which are being frowned upon.

Look, there sure is a market for this, and it does work as a marketing vehicle, but in there are cases where these influencers just abuse it for their own gain, and for a free lunch.

None of these latest two cases are racism, though, that argument is malicious.
