Notably the food was exquisite, I so enjoyed the eco friendly, non wasting attitude that is so nonchalant in most other restaurants…Not here though; at Wildebeest they pride themselves on utilizing the most creative and culinary centric, enticing ways the entire animal which indeed is farm fresh and LOCAL.

I was told by the marvellous Christine that often the owners head to the island to choose the daily “catch”.

The atmosphere in this place rocked; everything from the edgy brick interior, the up cycled Pantages Theater lights, to the Alt Pop playing.
