Customer Reviews

Just like Jock, the pizza is stuff legends are made off. Thin crust, smokey wood-fire pizza with a selection of drinks to choose from...what's not to love.

It was fantastic. The owner came to our table and had a chat with us and asked if we had any recomendations and made sure we were sorted at our table. Highly Recommended!

Awesome atmosphere, live music, good food, reasonable prices, friendly staff. One of the cool spots in Mbombela, must visit!
