Had a lovely time with my family. Food was very nice and good ambience. Service was a little slow, I suppose because there were many customers. On the whole we enjoyed it.

Situated in Illovo Square in Sandton - the restaurant is designed to make the best use of wonderful weather. The food is always good, and even during the week was fairly full over lunch time.
