The restaurant was fairly empty seeing it was middle of the week and just before lunch time. The waiter had to be "found" on numerous occasions and the service seemed slow and impersonal. The food was that of a... More

Changed name now but still great food for the whole family and we had friends with little ones, who played the whole time and were well looked after by the very competent staff in the playground. Service and portions excellent, a great place to go.

Food was on par to the Fourways branch Papachinos and did not have to wait to long for food. Good venue to visit but very busy. Bookings essential over weekends. Kids love the play area and pizza making area

Went with a group of friends, been a few times but won't go back anytime soon, the food was not great, we booked but still had to wait for them to pull a table together for us which could have done with a good wipe and the floor underneath was covered in food not a great experience.
