We picked this place at random for dinner. The menu is an odd jumble of different styles of food, which is normally a bad sign in a restaurant. But the food turned out to be surprisingly good. I see that some other reviewers mention that it is expensive - maybe so by Johannesburg standards, but it's very reasonable compared to prices in the rest of the world.

I don't like eating in malls, but it is sometimes difficult to avoid it in a city like Johannesburg. This is a chic place in a chic mall, actually a very nice place for lunch. Not cheap, but the food is rather good, and the atmosphere is great.

One of the best places in Hyde Park for visiting with friends - all my visits here over the years and last week did not disappoint - overall good ratings but definitely a little tooooo pricey. Highly recommended for visits with friends.

Had breakfast here one Saturday morning. We were drawn in by the décor and the overall feel of the place which we liked most of the restaurants at Hyde Park Corner. Ended up being a good choice. The food was really good - eggs poached to perfection. The service was excellent both from the waiters and the managers/owners. The coffee was ok…probably a little weaker than I would like for a double-shot latte. Their foam-work on the latte, however, adds a nice touch. It is a little pricey, but probably competitively priced compared to other establishments in the centre. Will definitely keep it in mind for a lunch/dinner to see what the rest of the menu is like. But I can recommend the breakfast at least.

Excellent, fresh, create-your-own salad options. Above average pricing but fair value nonetheless.

Also some innovative and carefully crafted deli food are on the menu.
