“Great views of Sandton”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

I think this must have one of the best views of Sandton, so it's great to take visitors to. The kids are also accommodated with food options, and there is a large sports field below to play on (as long as St Stitians isn't using it). The food is decent but not gourmet, the service sometimes a little slow.

“Amazing view, food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

We regularly go there for breakfast or lunch.
It is worth the trip for the stunning view alone!

Food is excellent, always well presented, and service not rushed

The manager Mark, always makes the effort to make sure that everything was satisfactory
Will going there again this weekend!

“Far from the madding crowd”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Little known nice place to try out - but as the service is a bit on the slow side you will need to sit and mull for a whle while you wait for the food to arrive. But as I will be going back there again soon it can't be that bad. Worthwhile trying it anyway.

“What a pity”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

I come to this restaurant weekly. I never eat there anymore. The food has always been awful and still is. The service is frustrating beyond words. The views are of course what pulls us in and the fact we are parents of children at the school so it's convenient as a mtg place. As for the decor they need a skip to throw those ridiculous pink trees in. They just can't seen to decide whether they are a cheap Indian rest a bistro or what. The manager tries very hard and is aware of the failings of his cook.

“Hidden gem!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

With its wonderful views of Sandton and joburg, this is a must visit for anyone wanting to sit outdoors! The food is good with selections of toasted sarmies to salads to more upmarket twiddly food! Not cheap but will not break the bank! I have been here numerous times and service never good- but who cares just drink in the views and fresh air. Safe secure parking.
