I needed s restaurant where I could have an extended business lunch with a valued client. Thomas Maxwell provided the perfect venue, excellent low-key service and top notch food. They had no problem with us staying until 5pm and kept serving water and coffee long after everyone else had left. The lunch was a great business success and I have... More

This is a small perfectly formed restaurant in Johannesburg. It is a stones throw away from Benmore Gardens Mall. Food is good (French) and the service is nice. Worth a visit.

Great welcome at the restaurant by the Chef and Staff.The food is decidedly contemporary French with a New York style ambience. The restaurant is really cozy and so a great choice for special occasions. I was celebrating my 31st Wedding Anniversary, it was an ideal choice. Wide assortment of wines and the chef usually has a four course menu of... More

We recently dined at Thomas Maxwell which was about our 7th dinner with them. I certainly think it deserves its high reputation that Trip Advisor has in the past shown. You won't find better mussels in many places in the world and they have an impressive wine list to match. Another big plus is the different ambiance you get with... More

Thomas Maxwell Restaurant is a definite for a special dining experience. Just by the bookings at this restaurant one can see that this is not your ordinary restaurant, and definitely in another class. The menu is absolutely superb with great wines on the wine menu. I can recommend any dish on the menu! From the minute you are greeted at... More

I loved the decor, very fashionable and trendy - ambiance in the restaurant is really special. Every time we've gone it was fully booked and had to book a couple of days before our night out. Clearly very popular. The food was interesting and delicious. Beautifully plated. Really a great night out for fine dining and special celebrations.

Food was nice and so was the wine. The setting was fashionable and the service was right on. We had a few whiskies after the meal and they were good enough too. I was a little confused about what all the fuss was about really, but again, I have to recognise that this we're not in London, UK but Johannesburg,... More

There seem to be so few French restaurants in Jhb these days, so it was good to find a place that fits the bill. Food and service was excellent. Prices were in line with any fine dining establishment. Even have a selection of reading glasses for those that forget to bring their own ! I would highly recommend it

We booked for 6 on a Sunday for lunch with the expectation that it would be very busy. It was not, but that didn't effect the quality and service. On both accounts, the restaurant did very well. The food was tasty and had fare that is not always found in Johannesburg restaurants. The service was attentive and we had an... More

The eclectic decor and placement of the restaurant make it a "find" in a rather obscure part of Sandton. The menu is "considered" and smallish, but the quality of the fare, its presentation and flavour is on a par with any other top class Sandton restaurant. Prices are fair and the staff and waiters are well mannered and helpful. When... More
