it is very weird sitting in a loo to have dinner, but they have turned it around spectacularly. the setting and ambiance is wonderful as was the welcome cocktail. the 6 course meal looks extravagant but didn't do it for me on taste. the whole restaurant eats together, so go there with an open mind and with plenty of time. mains only comes out after 9pm! the experience starts at 7pm - but they were late. the dessert is to die for!

The food was interesting and good the highlight for me personally was the desert-would I go back, yes, straight away no...would give it a two to three month wait again, but would highly recommend to all to give it a bash-you would not be sorry

Loved the space inside. Steeped in history and looks fantastic. We enjoyed the meal with different experiences! Toffee spheres, smoking cocktails, caramel melting chocolate desert to make a few. Beef Wellington with a twist on presentation was delicious. The team were amazing and very attentive.
Date night win!

"A Hidden Gem"

It was refreshing to find a little historical gem being put to great use! The food was divine, the entertainment - top class! The staff very attentive. Definitely Johannesburg's best kept secret.

"Food had no taste"
6.0 Cuisine 2 | Service 6 | Atmosphere 10

I have been to this venue before. The venue is great, and the presentation of the food is interesting. However, it really had no taste. The last time I went, I felt the food was not quite as I expected, but this time was completely tasteless. I will not give them a 3rd try.
