Great atmosphere

This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and great service, however I was really disappointed in my food that the floor manager recommended. It was dry and tasteless. But overall a good night with great cheesecake

Always nice to go there, be it lunch or dinner. Good for a formal business lunch in one of the private rooms or just lunch or dinner with friends. Very good wine list. Nice to sit outside or inside.

Situated in a tranquil area near the heart of Waterkloof. The restaurant can be very busy so book well in advance. Parking is a bit of a problem as it is on the grounds of the Pretoria Country Club.

As part of the Pretoria country club, they have a vast amount of out-door sitting overlooking lush green gardens of the club. A comprehensive wine list, with a well prepared menu - I had a sirloin steak - which of good quality and well prepared - all came together with great effect.

Everything was perfect. The food, the wine, the service and the atmosphere was excellent. The outside area is lovely for summer nights in Pretoria. Truly has become one of my favorite restaurants in the city.

always of a high standard - not a matter of style over substance as is the case with so many newer restaurants. Lovely views over the country club and good value for money. We return here often

We were a group of four who had dinner here on a Saturday evening. It was a perfect summer evening to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The food was just delicious, as were the cocktails. There was quite significant overcharge error on our bill, but this was easily sorted out in an apologetic and professional manner. Look forward...
