We wanted something different for the kids, thought they had found a balance of good food and a play area. The service was very slow, only got offered 1 drink, had to go to the fridge and help myself to water, no was even clearing the table! Ordered crumbed chicken fingers, got uncrumbed chicken kebabs. For myself I asked for the humus burger, for R92, see picture, really bad value for money, horribly small portions. The small patty didn't taste bad but I couldn't taste the humus at all. Very dissapponting.

Had a great lunch here. Organic and healthy food. Very tasty. They are great with their marketing, you can join their mailing list and be kept informed of upcoming events. You can also join their cooking classes if you want. Will definately be back

This is a perfect example of restaurants that you do not find in Africa. I struggle to find a restaurant that has 5 vegetarian dishes, let alone an entire menu!

The waitrons are friendly and easy to deal with, albeit a bit absent at times. The food is healthy and tasty, with an á la carte menu as well as a buffet. The buffet (weighed) is tastefully laid out and good value for money (R60-R80 per meal). I got the feeling of a country garden even though I was in the heart of suburban Johannesburg.

I highly recommend the halva smoothie!
