This resturant is well located near Marriot, holiday inn and other hotels in sandton. The ambience is good... You can even sit in the open also. The food is ok... We had our conference dinner here yesterday. Even a vegetarian like me could survive... Greek salad, vegetable platter etc.

Rather skip this - overrated and bland food. Portions are ample but if food is not good why bother. They do not cater for vegans and only have very limited choice for vegetarians.

We believe that all efforts were done by the TEAM to assist and rectify any shortcomings. Our apologies, if you felt that this had not been enough. Due to us being a steak restaurant, we regretably do not offer... More

If you love a good piece of meat. This place is awesome. Ribeye was my choice on the day and the sides where just as awesome. Well done bull run. Way to a mans heart is with a great piece of medium rare steak.
