OK. Was my favorite fish restaurant in Joburg. No more. They renovating so builders rubble and noise. The inside of the restaurant looking VERY old fashioned. The food order was incorrect. The presentation left a LOT to be desired. The staff very noisy. I’ll wait...until this restaurant is back to its former glory before I return.More

It is in a small shopping complex, but has seating inside and outside. They've put in a lot of effort to create a lovely family atmosphere, but it isn't in a "green space" as we'd say in the UK. I hope that helps.
