Loadshedding rescue as they have a generator and WIFI Pizza and salads are absolutely fantabulous and generous. Nachos are enough for a generous man sized meal.

Its a large open eating place both inside and outside seating. Children are encouraged to play in the play-ground. There is a bar room for those who want to get away and enjoy a conversation with adults. great all-round.

One of the favorite spot to treat the family especially the kids. Child friendly environment coupled with excellent dishes. Kids are entertained by preparing their own pizza.

I would say this is more of a family restaurant. The food was good and the service was also good. I would put it just above average.
