“Really Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Had dinner with old friends here the other night on their recommendation, my friends wanted to see what I thought, as we own a similar restaurant where we come from.
Well,we were not dissappointed. The food was excellent, our starters of oysters wrapped in smoked salmon were just beautiful. The main course was also great, a 400g sirloin steak, not easy to be tender, melted in my mouth. Even a simple, smoked salmon salad was great.
The wine list, is well thought out with some excellent wines at good prices to suit anyone and the ambiance was perfect.
You will enjoy your meal at this place, the fact that it is so busy is the testimony

“Nice food, shame about the service!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

We booked a table for nine people on Saturday evening, as usual the restaurant was heaving with nowhere to park, which is not very good considering a member of our party needs a wheelchair. We ended up parking over the very busy road.
(With all the renovations and extending of the restaurant, you would think that the parking situation would be addressed)

Inside it was extremely loud, and it was a struggle to hear anyone speak. Having visited many busy restaurants over the years, I can only blame the volume on poor acoustics.

Food was pretty hit and miss... Some starters were very over cooked, while others were sensational. One starter, prawns, took so long to come that when we enquiried they brought two (which they tried to charge for).

The main course took and hour and a half to arrive, again the food was hit and miss. The ribs were over cooked and tough, one of the fillet steaks was cold,and the sliced fillet was also over cooked and rubbery!! The rest of the mains were good (33% failure rate)

NOTE: about the wait for the food, and the poor service, the excuse given to us, was that "the restaurant was extremely busy".
Nonsense... When tables roughly the same size as ours were seated after us, and were on their puddings before we had our mains could only mean that food was coming out of the kitchen, just not to us.
Also should you choose to extend your restaurant to the extremely large number of covers, you should be able to cope!!!! Otherwise don't take so many bookings.

We were looking forward to going, ended up looking forward to leaving, and are looking forward to never going again!!!

“A Good Day Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Excellent food with a wide range of selection on the menu. I particularly like the seafood skewers and the seafood platter. Both options are done very well. Try their chicken livers which are to die for.

“All round fanstastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

There are very few restaurants in JHB that are run as well as this. Firstly, the restaurant is massive and extremely well designed. Have you ever been to large restaurant with terrible service and them complaining that they are "busy"? Hahaha... this could never happen here as they are so organized in so many ways even though they are probably larger than most restaurants by far! This restaurant can be seen as a family restaurant which is child friendly (there is a whole section for children and jungle gyms outside to entertain them), couples would love this place and it is a great environment for business as well. It seems they have the formula right! Besides from the ambiance, best of all is the food - which brings me to my second point. You cannot really go wrong with anything on the menu as their chefs are very good in all-round. Vegetarians won't goo hungry here. Thirdly, don't forget to book otherwise you won't get in that easily on a weekend, come rain or shine.
