A great Sunday brunch experience! Lovely setting with great views of Johannesburg. Great variety of food - tasty and well prepared. A true colonial decadent meal! And a great way to spend a Sunday morning. Service is not the best and staff could do with some training but it does not distract from the experience. Highly recommended!

We had brunch on a Sunday with friends and family. The food is amazing, the view even better - what better place to see the surrounding areas, than up there. Unfortunately the live music, which was very good, was at times too load. Highly recommended all in all

Went to the brunch and when I had to pay the bill the waiter tried to score the lunch buffet money by insisting that I should "e-wallet" send him the 1,5k as it was initially omitted on their bill. If they do that to everyone surely it will kill the business ! Great place but the outside dining area needs... More

We were invited here by close friends and were thrilled to have found this priceless gem of a venue. The setting overlooking Johannesburg's leafy suburbs made for a perfect al fresco luncheon. The buffet luncheon was spectacular and the service attentive though not intrusive. We will definitely return in 2016.
