Small, unassuming place in heart of Melville. The food is good - great burgers that taste as good as they look. Decent selection of beers. Don't be put off by slightly shabby looks. Nice street vibe...

Vibey fun and friendly restaurant that is a firm favourite whenever we're in Joburg. Prawns are excellent - large, tasty and juicy, steak is fantastic and service is very good!
