The food was average. The waiter tried to palm off a R400 bottle of red wine by saying it was the most popular wine. Won't be going back.

Slightly hidden away, this gem of a restaurant offers some of the best grill meat dishes in Johannesburg at a reasonable price. Their fillet Dianne is an all time favourite, and we love their shoe string fries. Great ambiance and very attentive waiters. It is...More

Steak prices reasonable. Very good steak done to perfection. Good wine selection. Good ambiance we booked for 6.30 and were a little disappointed in the seating. Next time will book a few days in advance and ask for a window seating. Great evening out.

We had a very good dinner with attentive staff and excellent food. All our food was well cooked and very tasty. The menu has something for all tastes and the wine list is very good. Always a good choice for a fine dining experience.

So pleased we found this fantastic 'hidden' steakhouse in Sandton. It's elegant, yet totally unpretentious. The steaks are really, really good and the side dishes are delicious - and probably generous enough for 2 to share. The staff are also genuinely warm and friendly. We'll...More

Hi This restaurant is listed as Halaal but one of the reviews mentioned a good wine selection which means you aren't certified halaal. Can you clarify? Thanks!

We serve halal meat and grill on separate grill. So Halal friendly. We are not a Halal restaurant. Call us if you have any other queries.

Sorry, our Speedpoint's only take credit cards when you are present. We can't do it like a travel agency. I think it's a security issue for restaurants.
