We were invited here by close friends and were thrilled to have found this priceless gem of a venue. The setting overlooking Johannesburg's leafy suburbs made for a perfect al fresco luncheon. The buffet luncheon was spectacular and the service attentive though not intrusive. We will definitely return in 2016.
