First time I've been back since their move and they have notched it up a few on the scale of amazingness. Service was SUPERB and we couldn't fault the food. One thing is for sure, their kitchen handles a full house, and handles it well!!

As soon as you enter you can feel the buzz of this place. Booking essential. Terrific wine list and also sell by glass. Menu catered for all tastes. 2 of us had steak and 2 fish. Both beautifully served with good veggies.

This is easily the best steakhouse that I visited in Johannesburg this year. The ambiance is wonderful with a sophisticated Africa feel. Very competent staff and fluent in the menu. Make sure to book. Really enjoyed this and hope to visit soon

A party of us attended a dinner evening in a fully booked Thursday evening. They put us at a table with mismatched chairs, the service was poor and the food was not up to standard. I suppose it was silly of me to order Duck...More

Dinner was to be a special family affair at reputedly one of Johannesburg's perennial finest restaurants, and in parts it was, but for the price and expectations a couple of not-quite-up-to-scratch parts tarnished the whole experience.
