Ribs and wings was a sad attempt at one of SA's favorite foods. The outside area looks rundown and in need of some TLC. Service not too bad. Staff friendly and helpful

The food is the worst in Secunda. They can't even make a lettuce here. Forget about service it's a mystery and at large. If you need a drink it's a place to go. If you need to smoke other peoples smoke pull in.

Bad service right through the night. The menu is standard and there is nothing that sets it apart from the generic theme of these restaurants

Food is good here, very generous helpings. The portion of mushrooms as a starter would have fed 2. I had a pizza for main course and it was decent. Not the best then again it's not a pizza joint. I'd eat here again and go for a meat dish as The steaks / meat dishes I saw coming out looked... More

My daughter in law reserved 12 seats for 12:00 on 10 May 2015 to celebrate Mother's Day. What should have been a happy celebration turned out to be a nightmare. We were seated outside and due to the change in weather conditions, moved to the inside of the restaurant, still appreciated but ended up in the smokers section! Waited more... More

Service is excellent, selection is OK,food is average, no dry Cava yet but only been asking for 3 months, location next to the lake is romantic and has nice views over the stacks from the neighbors burning waste gas, all in all and given the competition for a beer after work it is fine, its not Antwerp, but where is???
