“Nice location, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

Great for on-the-go eating, when you're shopping in Menlyn mall. Nice meeting place with friend/family. Good service and a wide variety of affordable food to be enjoyed from a restaurant with stunning views!

“Packed on a weeknight - we can see why!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

Just the fact that this restaurant was packed on a weeknight in the middle of the month should tell you something. Great, fast and friendly service. Manager very visible and when we wanted to decide on a main course before ordering wine, even other waiters than ours stopped to check if we had ordered drinks or wanted to. Very nice African-inspired decor and ambience. Delicious food (try the sweet chilli chicken wrapped in crispy bacon!), wine list not that extensive but a good variety and balance between everyday quaffers and some special wines.
All in all, a great experience from the moment the smiling hostess greeted us at the entrance on arrival to her goodbye as we were leaving.

Just love going there, especially for dinner or mid-afternoon cocktails in the summer. Great view, amazing decor & delicious food :) Keep it up - truly one of my all time fav restaurants in Pretoria!
