“Downtown Boksburg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

Don't be put off by the area when visiting this restaurant it has character(s) in plenty and a good draft beer to accompany your meal. The menu is not the most extensive but it is always worth asking if there are any specials. Sometimes good old pub grub 'liver and onions' or an old favourite of many is casseroled rabbit. Chicken dishes are generously portioned as is a firm favourite chicken livers taken either as a starter or main. Prawns are not only large and well cooked but compared with other more fashionable eateries quite affordable as is King Clip and Sole. Finish lunch or supper with a competetively priced Dom Pedro in this well worth a visit family run restaurant.

“Dinner with family.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

What more do you want when you go out for supper than being treated as family. Regulars dont even use the menu anymore, just tell them what you up for and it will be served. Service is so so, the food and makes up for that. Once you go there you will go back, time and time again.
