Closing Dinner

The Stardust Theatrical Dining restaurant is no ordinary restaurant - as can be seen in this extract from their website: "It is the home of the singing waiter! Not only will you enjoy the wholesome, sumptuous taste of their designer tagine menu and the buzz of their wine bar’s best and brightest, but you’ll also be served and entertained by the shining stars of Cape Town’s immense pool of talented young performers. Make sure you get your waiter’s name – it’ll be written in lights one day!
The cellars are open and so is the bar! Pump up the volume, kick back, relax and prepare yourself for an evening you won’t soon forget. 
Unless you have a little too much wine…
Who are we kidding? There’s no such thing."
