Clients accompanied me to the Flame Restaurant at the formerly known Westcliff. It was such a wonderful morning enjoying the scenery overlooking the Zoo and catching a glimpse of the resident elephant. The brunch that was on offer was indeed delicious and catered for all...More

You would think that a top notch restaurant in Johannesburg with such a spectacular view would do it justice with reasonably good service but that couldn’t be further from the truth. We couldn’t merge 2 tables to accommodate our guests. We had to wait 30...More

Warm beer, slow service, untrained waiters - book now if that is what you are looking for. Just remember that tables are uncleaned, four sets of patrons used the table next to ours and still the same mess is left uncleaned. Can't comment about the...More

Don’t go for sundowners. Tables with a view are kept for guests, even if they remain empty and you can’t book either. The potted plants obscure the view from the tables at the back and the loud music spoils the atmosphere. What a pity.
