Had a fantastic time at News Rivonia. Went with a group of guys and had such a lekker time. We had ice cold drafts and then some great whisky. The service was attentive and quick.

We loved the platters - they were excellent! Just snacked away and drank for hours. The owner, Gerry, walks around and chats to people - not often that you see this.

Keep it up Rivonia.

A great spot for watching sport while enjoying an ice cold draft beer. The snack baskets are very good.

This is a very nice restaurant and is in a great location. It sits on a hill above the shopping center and has a great vibe. Great for lunch or an evening meeting after work.

We had great cocktails out on the patio while listening to live music. The waiter was friendly and quick. The whole patio feel adds life to Rivonia - very nice.

The best of the Rivonia Bars - had a great time sitting on the couches on the deck area yesterday afternoon (before the clouds rolled in). The guys had icy cold draft beers and we had cocktails. Nibbled on a snack basket - was tasty but too much. We had a very friendly waiteress who was on the ball.
What a lekker relaxing time. Thanks guys.
