A wonderful eating experience. The restaurant looks out onto the apron of the airport and can, at times, get a bit noisy. The food was well prepared and tasty. Waiters were friendly and accommodating.

Having been to Harvard Cafe in midrand I was really disappointed. Yes, it was live music but so loud and just had the feeling that it needs an uplift. Seems a bit grubby...

I'm still can't comprehend the taste of their food. The is nothing wow about their food. We like the play ground though for our kid and watching planes.

Really enjoy this place watch the sun go down watch planes helicopters whilst having a bite to eat or a drink. Reasonably priced food and drink. Also play area for small children. Plenty of safe parking.

Service was slow, food average. Nice place to just be with friends, but surely not for the culinary expert.

Outside seating was fine with enough shade. Not noisy despite many parties with kids. Food was almost exactly as expected. Service was fine. The only negative was I found the service slow considering it was a Thursday midday and very few tables were occupied.
