My wife and I had an amazing dinner. To be fair throw truffle on it and we are happy. Iain had to help us through the menu, we could have ordered it all but the fillet and mussels won. We'll be back just hope it will be available.

My wife and I love French cuisine and are very finicky about our food. For my birthday, I wanted to treat myself with an exceptional dining experience. We had a great Bordeaux wine off their extensive wine list, my wife enjoyed the seafood bisque and I had duck livers. Love the rustic style, excellent service and delicious food. Planning to...

From the outside it doesn't look like much, but as you walk inside you have a sense of something special. It was a warm evening that we went and with the doors open it created a great feel. The food was good, and everyone had a good evening. Although they were fully booked that night, with the different rooms the... More

We had dinner at Thomas Maxwell last night with friends of our - including their 3 sons. We had very attentive servers and great food. A number of folks at our table went for the evening specials - Lottie's Hats (a fabulous pasta starter with spinach and blue cheese in a very light and dainty ravioli - yummy!), then on... More

Thomas and his wonderful team really know how to make great food and treat their customers. You will be made to feel welcome and be treated to such a great restaurant. I have been going to this place for ages with my customers and then family at night and will continue to do of ages.

It has a European feel to it yet you are in the heart of Sandton. I Like this place. The food is really good and varied, the service excellent and they have a great wine list! This restaurant is in my top 10 Jo'burg venues. A lovely place that cater well for larger groups.

I rarely rate restaurants as excellent but I love this place. The first time I visited it was great but that was a few years ago. I visited more recently and I love it even more. I love the laid-back atmostphere, the service was great - the way they tell you about tonight's specials is great :). I had the... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Johannesburg. Their service is impeccable, the food in amazing and the ambience is ideal for a romantic night out. Both my wife and I had the Lobster pasta - It was cooked to perfection and the bacon bits added a whole new dimension to the dish. It was not on the standard... More

We joined friends for an early mid-week meal at Thomas Maxwell's in Benmore. My husband ordered the tuna carpaccio which arrived with plastic still in some of the fish pieces. The chef apologized & said he would talk to the kitchen staff - we were seated right next to the kitchen & saw very little interaction between the 3 "chefs"... More
