If you live in the Modderfontein area, this food and function venue, which is also home to the all-girl Oakes Brew House (hand-crafted beer as well as coffee, that is) is a safe standard.
The restaurant caters for all tastes - offering everything from calamari rings (battered or grilled), carpaccio, prego rolls and wings for starters and light eating; to Mozambiquan-style seafood dishes, steaks, Portuguese-style pork (espetada), chicken and craft burgers, South Indian curries, pasta and bubble bread (flatbread pizza made with garlic and origanum).
The kids have also been catered for with options of bubble bread, 150g of tender pork ribs, mac and cheese and a cheese burger.
For dessert, have the waffles and ice cream or chocolate and nut brownie with ice cream or the decadent Modderfontein Mud Slice made with cardamom coffee chocolate mud cake and 85% dark Lindt chocolate.
Plenty of cocktail specials and craft beer as well as coffee freshly brewed on the premises to treat yourself on the menu.
Is friendly but patience is necessary. A large restaurant with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, unless you’re looking for a quiet evening, it’s best experienced on weekends when live entertainment has been booked.
Best for …
A slow Saturday or Sunday lunch with friends and family where kids can run around freely.

Our first encounter with this establishment was the weekend before last 14/3/15. We just arrived Sunday 8/3/15 and was promptly advised by the manager that they were full. No apology, no offer to have a seat at the bar and wait until a table opens up. Just "we are full". Then went again this Saturday after booking. What a let down.
Service was poor and our waiter was seriously not interested. No personality whatsoever. Two of the meals arrived at the same time and as we were about finished, my husband's bubblebread/pizza arrived. Topping only in the middle, bare on the outside of the crust. My chicken salad was more a deconstructed salad as all the elements were on the plate, I had to mix it all together to make it a salad. Very dry and seriously over priced for what I got. In general the food is over priced.
The one man band we have encountered at another establishment before. He is terrible and out of tune. He made our ears bleed. We will never be back again and dont waste your time and money by going as well. The staff have no idea what customer service is but with a manager like that, what is expected.
