Great place to eat attached to the Protea balalaika hotel. Good value for money and for those who smoke, you can smoke outside.

I was staying at the attached Protea hotel in Sandton and ventured here for lunch. Excellent and fresh food, good wine selection, large portion sizes. Courteous staff and quick service. I sat in the outdoor patio for lunch and found it to be lovely.
