Great place. So chilled. Nice music, good drinks, great food. And the view is also not too shabby. Service is average.

Staff were amazing - so good we ate there twice. Second time told waiter that the tuna on our health bread (obviously our favorite) was half that appeared on our first visit. Advised that they were out of tuna but immediately purchased two tins and presented to us soon thereafter. Could teach Johannesburg restaurants a thing or two
