Late extended hours bring flexibility to night life. We relaxed to a drink with shooters after fine dining. Excellent and prompt service

Very noisy after 7. Prices are not cheap. Food average. Friendly staff. Clean bathrooms could do with a revamp

The best cocktails in town with a cozy and comfortable setting, great location and easy to find. Everything on the menu is delicious and worth the price. I have never been disappointed when visiting this news cafe.

We decided to have breakfast. Ordered three toasted sandwiches and a Banting breakfast. The food took very long to arrive. Even after the waiter informed us it would only be another two minutes.

This is a vibey restaurant situated in Boksburg. The food was generally good as was the service. Patrons have the choice of sitting inside or outside. We have visited this restaurant on various occasions in the past and service and food have generally been acceptable on those occasions as well.

We decided to go for an afternoon cocktail and will never return! all outside seating is smoking with apparently no regard for the smoking legislation! Service is clearly aimed at a younger demographic, music overly loud and just an unpleasant atmosphere.

The service is good and friendly, but my steak was not what I asked for. If you ask for medium rare, then it is not welldone. More for drinking not so good for food.
