We had an amazing night here doing The Beef Appreciation. Most of the night was in the kitchen and it was not just a dinner but a complete evening experience. If you are at all a steak eater make time for this dining option!

The good is gold standard for sure. If it's meat you want then this is the place to get it and more. The deserts are stunning, try the home made cookies and cream ice cream.

I had a good evening with my son enjoying refreshing service and very good steak. The steak ageing tour was especially surprising and informative

We had the grass fed rumps which were perfectly cooked and very tasty. The variety of sides offered were good and the Bernaise sauce very tasty. Worth a repeat visit.

My favorite in Johannesburg. Good quality meat, personalized service. And always something special to offer on meat sourced somewhere, a different cut.

Don't forget to reserve at the local grill. Also before ordering your food, ask your waiter for a tour in the kitchen and the fridge where meat is aged... so they would explain about the difference in the meat they offer/aging process.
