“excellent, honest food, with cool people around”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

I eat here frequently - at least once per week, and the consistency is fantastic. Love the prego rolls and the carrot cake is the best in town. Vibe is always good and the food simple but delicious. One of my favourites in Johannesburg

“whats the fuss .......”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

It seems to me that this place is one of the restaurant that has earned its name by being a place where it is more important to be seen there then to have dinner or lunch there. I have eaten in this restaurant several times since i have started flying to Johannesburg for my work and this for the past several years . I have still not understood what the fuss is about this restaurant just of rivonia or is t already called oxford road there . Restaurant is not realy nice or comfortable and terras on street side can surely not be nice as cars keep pasing by . Menu is not large and blackboard wich is supposed to have specials of today seems never to change . Salmon and steaks the only decent food i ever ate here but nothing i ever ate here was something out of the ordinary so just very simple food for an average price . Conclusion this is not a gourmet restaurant just an average bistrot serving average food.

“Pavement cafe”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

The food is good, has great atmosphere but the location is poor. Parking means you have to get from the Thrupps shopping centre. eating on the pavement can be good or bad if a car alarm is going off as on my last visit.

“worth a visit”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We went on a Saturday night with no reservation but they made every effort to organize a table. The food is always delicious and the service is also very good.
