The service was excellent and the food was great. Well prepared and they have a wide selection of Cape wines and well worth a visit when you are in Sandton.

I had lunch with friends here and it was pleasant; we all had meat dishes and we liked them. My fillet was tender and tasty; service is fine. Good option if you are staying at the Balalaika hotel
