“A nice casual suburban cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

A typical suburban shopping centre café/bistro in a Sandton suburb, with indoor and outdoor seating onto the car park - very common in South Africa!
Good for breakfasts, lunch or dinner.
The waitron was attentive and it was average value for money.
I had an excellent salad there and would go back.

“Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

Bryanston Riverside shops.
Dinner for 2, June 2013.

You can sit outside or in, we sat inside as it was winter.
Good welcome, prompt service.
I had a pizza which was good, tomato and mozzarella salad - way too big, they will not do it as a "side salad" - shame, and nobody wants to have this as a main!

Nice cold Windhoek beer, good quality juice.

Just sort out a few nice side salads, and we will be back!

“Relaxed Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

The personal and professional attention by Dino and Renee as well as the good service, the tasty, good value-for-money food and the ambiance made the Saturday morning brunch a pleasure - we could chat in a relaxed atmosphere and have quality food and service.

“Friendly, attentive service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

Arrived at this restaurant unexpectedly and found a gem! The pastas and pizza are divine and full of flavor! Leftovers were savored the next day and plans are thought of to visit again! Great vibe for a Thursday evening with friends or as a couple.
