“Cool Local Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012 via mobile

Giles is the place that young Joburgers go for a drink after work. It has a great buzz and sure to meet some friends there. The service and attention to detail leaves some work, but in general a great vibe and a nice crowd .

“Great for a drink”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

Giles in a trendy after work drink spot filled with locals. Great for that after work drink, networking or to watch the Sunday afternoon game. The restaurant service is good but i find the food to be a bit unimaginative and sometimes lacking in consistency. Pop in on a Thursday or Friday after work to experience the after work drinks vibe.
