During a fantastic trip on the hop on, hop off bus around Johannesburg we stopped at Gold Reef city. Coffee and toasted sandwiches took forever!! What was supposed to be a quick stop turned out to be a long, boring and frustrating experience. Stay on the bus next time!

We came here after a morning at the Apartheid museum. My friend had recommended it for their eggs benedict.
The atmosphere is horrible, as the restaurant is inside the casino the noise of the poker machines was overwhelming and awful. The waitress sat us inside because outside was for smokers only, which we aren't, the noise was so loud that three people could not carry on a conversation.
The waitress forgot half our order, when our food was brought out it was the wrong order and had to be sent back, we waited at least 30 minutes in a cafe for a simple eggs benedict.

The food itself was good, once it came out.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend at all.

Stopped by for a quick bite to eat and a cognac after a show. High level of service.

Cognac was superbly presented.

In the middle of the Casino floor, high on top, overlooking the play area. It's where breakfast is held, nice stave, good service.
