If you large eating large portions of food insist on more positions of the main dish. The drinks are ok as well.

Great atmosphere and friendly staff. The ability to order any size of steak made up for anything lacking - of which there was none. Oh and the steak was properly cooked like I asked. All-round goodness!More

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.

a little too pricey for what is provided, do not pay in USD, pay in Rand only. The meals were small and overpriced for what is up the road
