Reviewed 2 September 2013

I had the burger with pepper sauce on the side and thought it was great. I'm glad I got the sauce on the side though because it was a bit thick (little goes a long way). Best was definitely the flavorful burger, tasty bread used for bun. Fancy presentation in a chic environment elevates the normally humble burger. I had dinner fairly early the night i went (weeknight) so service was quick, if a bit abrupt/cursory. But, that didn't ruin a great meal.

My first comment is don't be totally put off by the normally empty chairs - especially in contrast to the three neighboring eateries which fill up much quicker (or I should say, fill up which this one doesn't).

Despite changing the menu to generic "continental" (which the staff claim is Portuguese - trust me, it isn't), the name of the place is still Greek. So, set your expectations properly. One benefit of few customers is the abundance of staff who, sadly, are trained to repeat every order back to you as you make it (like an echo chamber). Well, at least you get what you order . . . The food is tasty and fresh - if unremarkable. Certainly one for the occasional meal, but not a "regular".

Having failed to get any service or a decent table at the nearby Koi, I walked across to Kuzina and got really good service and a fantastic steak, cooked to perfection. Recommended

Finally I have found a restaurant in Joburg where everything works.

The decor, smiles, music, clean linen, service and food all working together to make a great restaurant.

The best part of the experience is when the owner/chef Paul himself makes his way to the table to find out if we have enjoyed the meal.

10 Points every time.
