A very nice restaurant with friendly staff and a menu which gives you not the "normal" food but something special. We had salads which were just excellent - we have not had such a good salad in a very long time. Very recommendable!

Prepare for both beautiful and delicious food. The duck was exceptional... as were the pork belly, fillet and lamb terrine the rest of our party ordered. Desserts were as delectable as mains - try the milk tart just for the honeycomb garnish!

We have just eaten again at young multi-restaurant owner Jame's Coobs in Parkhurst. Our favourite restaurant in Johannesburg. Service was impeccable as usual. We both found that the reincarnation of the octopus starter was disappointing - too much deep fried stuff and not enough grilled...More

Enjoyed an evening with friends. I had the pork belly which was superb, but still was jealous of the line fish on the one side of me and the duck leg on the other side. The duck leg included a delicious scotch egg. Would definitely...More
