“No nonsense good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

No booking - just pop in but be sure to get there early. Simple uncomplicated dishes done well. Small menu. Most regulars have their favourites. Do not miss the crumbed olives as a starter and the best baked potatoes ever. Busy and vibey. Service can be slow

“Upmarket, with upmarket prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

Not too bad. Food average and expensive. There are better places in JHB. I do like sitting at the bar inside with a friend for a drink or too. The spot has a snobbish element to it, and I dont feel downright comfy/cosy like I have done elsewhere.

“The vibe rolls on decade after decade”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

Simple food, well prepared, consistent quality, year after year. Attracts young, and not so young, trendy crowd. Best frites in Johannesburg
