Great decor and ambience. Perfect for big groups. They also have an extensive menu and you'll be spoilt for choice. Whatever we ordered from the menu all tasted great ranging from Lamp chops to lasagne to avo on toast!

Came here for dinner with friends. The service was very friendly. Very limited options on the menu for vegans but I managed to find a vegan pizza which was delicious. I very much enjoyed the chilled ambience in JB’s corner.

I ate here twice on a trip to Johannesburg in October 2016. The food was consistently of a high quality and the service was tops. If you're an carnivore, I would recommend you try one of the steaks. Delicious.
