Restaurant
“Quite simply the best value-for-money and most stylish restaurant in Johannesburg, set at the bottom the University of the Witwatersrand West campus. It brims with great cooking, Cape Dutch wine-farm styling (think great lunch and wine underneath ancient oaks), and wonderful service”

Bar
“This is a fairly new bar which has opened up in the area. I have only been inside but never had any drinks or food. It is popular at the moment. It is like a speakeasy bar, the entrance you have to go through a laundry shop which is quite cool. I think they have a very extensive tequila menu”
