Nice ambience. Pity the view is of a street and cars as usual in Jhb. I ordered maple bacon,caramelised onion and gorgonzola sourdough pizza and it was delicious. My friends also enjoyed their meals of bone marrow and ribs and a chorizo pizza.
Small menu selection. Craft beers available starting at about R40-R50. Service was good. No complaints.

Both with open air and closed door seating, the ambience is very good. The service is good and friendly. The food was good. The mussels steamed with herb and wine was very nicely done, right amount of cooking and mussels were fresh. The music was nice and not loud thus allowed you to have conversation.

Lively, trendy place but a bit dark for my aging eyes when it came to reading the menu. The sesame seed tuna was fantastic. My salmon was good after I sent it back for a little more cooking. I wasn't mad about what it rested on - too oniony for my taste. Service was friendly. Corkage wasn't cheap at R150 but the wine was worth it: Newton Johnson pinot noir 2010.
I actually really like this restaurant. I've been here a good few time since it opened a couple of years back. It's nice for lunch too. Then try to get a table on the patio on the pavement and you can watch the pedestrians walk on by.
Good selection of craft beers.

Sat at one of he outdid and tables on one of those beautiful Johannesburg summer early evenings.
Service was on point and friendly.
My partner really enjoyed her mushroom ravioli saying it was unique and very flavorful. My pizza was very tidy and way too much.
Great selection of craft beers
