Took family out for Mother's Day lunch. What a disappointment. No one front of house to greet and seat us. I eventually located someone who advised other people sitting at our table. It was a buffet starter, dessert with choice of 3 mains. There was...More

We were welcomed by a friendly waiter and shown to our table. The wine took 10mins to arrive and we still weren't handed a food menu. We ordered the special grilled salmon and veg and waited another 20 mins before being told that there was...More

My family and I booked my dad's 75th birthday lunch at this restaurant and it was extremely disappointing! I should have read all these reviews before I booked because i am clearly not the only person frustrated with this venue. Don't get me wrong -...More

Spent a lovely afternoon relaxing in the sun. When we received the bill we were horrified. R110 for a kiddies penne Napoletana!!! Soup was cold, mains delicious and dessert very mediocre -especially for the R280pp price tag. A pity as the environment is really nice....More

The Other Side Restaurant on Monaghan Farm, Johannesburg, is a beautiful setting and has lots of play areas for children. However, the food (a buffet) was not up to standard - at R255 per person, I expected a lot better and tastier food. The beef...More

We were a large crowd - 14 people, however there were not many others there so not really a reason for such poor service. The food took forever, the service was shocking. No effective management presence whatsoever. On the plus side - it is a...More

So this is not local to anyone unless you are a resident of the farm. Still worth a drive out there for lunch. We had the buffet and, although I hate standing in line for food, it was efficient and I really enjoyed feasting my...More
