Restaurant details
Reviewed April 21, 2014

The a riffs bar and grill is a restaurant inside of the Garden Court Sandton City Hotel. The food and atmosphere are not what I would expect from a nice hotel as it is the Garden Court. Very good location, near Sandton Convention Center and the Nelson Mandela Sq and Sandton City malls. The service is poor and slow. Food option is relatively limited and not tasty. Employees are not well trained and not so friendly. The RIFFS BAR has everything to be a great place but It needs some restyling in my modest opinion.

The decor is lovely and the atmosphere is good. It has a very sports-bar feel to it, with a tv within your vision, no matter where you look. The food is average to say the least. We ordered burgers and I didn't think one could mess up a burger too badly, but it was tasteless, dry and not very exciting for my tastebuds. It seems their was a tour bus docking at the hotel, so expect to be surrounded by tourists. I don't say this as a bad thing, we welcome our tourists, but if you looking for something different just be aware of the fact. The evening was saved by great company and a lovely waitress with a super sense of humour.

Good place for rewinding over a good beer in the evening along with typical Sports Bar Food. Nice and tasty Burgers, also good selection of other foods and snacks.
