So many better places to go. Fillet was ordered medium but over-cooked. Fries good. Most disappointing was the roasted vegetables - more boiled than roasted and tasteless. Wince selection by glass very limited. Just not good enough to justify price.

We ate here as we were staying at the hotel. At least four of the items we tried to order weren't available. What we did order was actually very good but service was a bit patchy.

Food was ok--nothing spectacular. Priced higher than much better restaurants in the Rosebank neighborhood. Better choices are within easy walking distance.

The food here is amazing and I will come back again, without doubt. Though I wouldn't fancy coming here as a veggie and there aren't many lighter meals on the menu. However, there are some problems. Stock Control, now I understand that things sell out or aren't available, but when the same things have been off the menu for 4... More

My friends and I decided to go here for a special evening. It was absolutely wonderful, the service was friendly, the steaks were amazing! and the wine selection was great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Normally avoid hotel restaurants but this was a good one. Prices were up there for Johannesburg but food was well presented and cooked to perfection.

They advertise that you will get R 100 of your next meal if you sign up online for their newsletter. They send you a voucher that then says t's and c's apply but they don't tell you what they are. You have to phone or email them to find out that the table must order 4 main courses go qualify.... More

We were around 50 people so we had the place for ourselves - however the waiters did struggle with our requests and we had to keep on repeating - even though each table had been assigned one specific waiter.

great food, super steaks, but the waiter did just increase the tip as apparently my 9% was not enough, so he did put in 10% - which I find not acceptable.

We had some of the local dishes (potjes) and enjoyed them very much. We also had a bottle of pinotage, the true south African grape. It was reasonably priced and tasted great. Our waiter was very personable and gave us more information about the dishes and where to get some of the ingredients. Very enjoyable evening
