Check in was quick. Early check in was appreciated, although it was Christmas season and was not busy. Room was clean on the surface and the upper part of wardrobe was so dusty that I just could not believe it. Found medication on the floor.

Classy restaurant by day but transforms into a nightclub after the sun goes down. Casual yet smart patrons, mostly young professionals from Midrand and surrounding areas. Very cosmopolitan atmosphere. Worth a visit when you are around Midrand.

Its one of my faves when in Johannesbirg. The service is fast and the food is always fresh, especially their barbecue ribs with potatos and the cocktails.

The food is good but the waiters disappear for long periods of time! this happens all the time, even during quiet times, 17:00 - 19:00 on a Saturday. That is the cold breeze.

Nice and cozy, delicious food and fruit juice! We spilled a whole glass of pulpy orange juice on the floor and the waiter was so nice about it and all smiles. The manager was also very friendly and came to our table with much appreciated common pleasantries. They made us feel welcome! Absolutely in love, will definitely go there again.
