Positioned in a villa like setting, feels like you out of the city. Love the village like vibe. Service is good and the vegetarian bunless burger was the best.

This spot in the industrial but leafy courtyard is so good. A wonderful change from the usual joburg restaurants that are in shopping malls with a view of parked cars. The food and coffee is delicious and the service is good.

we come after covid trying to get some nice place and went to 44 stanley. We knew salvation is very nice but this time was awesome. I order gorgonzola burger and was amazing. My friends order pork belly and chiken noodles...you can think..normal but it...is not. It is really good, well presented and tasty. You must try and enjoy the place. Worth the wait..More

Met a friend there for lunch. Big selection to choose from. Ordered drinks and then food. Both arrived within minutes. Pleasantly surprised because they were full and turning tables. With that in mind we were not rushed. Sat in the courtyard. Could hear one another...without having to shout. I personally think the kitchen could have done the playing of the food better.More
