I took my family there wearing my favorite team jersey, my team lost but I left with a smile, the compassion and humor from the staff was welcomed, the patronage and service was homely and the kiddie entertainment had ticked all boxes, the bacon on...the pizza ain't too shabby eitherMore

Very impressed with the service, all the staff are friendly and help each other out with ensuring the table is clean and you are attended to. The manager/owner is also friendly and helpful and she ensures you are comfortable. The food was great and are...generously portioned! My new favorite restaurant!More

A spur of the moment suggestion to out for lunch on 24 December. As we walked in there were our friends, so so they moved to a larger table. Bearing in mind that the restaurant was not that busy, maybe 60% full, to now have...to get up to call a waiter to bring menus and a wine list is not acceptable. To again have to get up and look for a waiter to replenish the wine is not acceptable. There were a number of waiters just drifting around - far too many waiters, far too little organisation. This is so typical of South African restaurants. A waiter assigned to certain tables, result ends up in poor service. The solution? Get rid of 50% of the waiters and make the rest responsible to look after all the tables. The tips can then be shared. It works in Europe. The food here has always been good, meals ordered as follows:- Zucchini & feta fritters R85.00 Arrabiata pasta with chicken R105.00 Pollo Rosso R95.00 Grilled hake and chips R95.00 I had the grilled hake and it was really well done and tasty. The chips also very good. Would order it again but have it without butter sauce and rather some tartar sauce on the side.More

Particularly popular for family outings because of the kids entertainment and menu, but with quality food and generous portions that make it equally attractive to a broader audience. The pizzas are great, the seafood pasta is a winner and the breakfast pasta sound intriguing enough...to warrant a return visit. Note that the fusilli pasta is only available in gluten free.More

Sunday afternoon visit for a nice lunch with good service. Enjoyable craft draught beer on tap and a menu with enough to choose from and reasonably priced.

Ideal place to take a toddler and the food is great! There are two play areas, one for babies and toddlers and the other for older kids. There is a push bike track, a variety of jungle gyms and slides so the kids are kept...busy. The food is reasonably priced and is value for money. The best part of the meal was the decadent milkshake, which was the best milkshake I’ve ever had! Do try them but be warned, you’ll struggle to finish your mains if you start with this.More

A child friendly restaurant. Went for a family breakfast and an interesting menu and all enjoyed their food. I loved the Mama Mia breakfast option. Good value for money and waiters were considerate. Although the restaurant was not full service was a little slow. Recommended...for family meals especially for those with young children.More
