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

The owner was very rude to us and our Spanish guests and the only reason I didn't get up and walk out was out of respect for my host. The food was pretentious and tasteless. I won't be going back, there are far better places to eat in Joburg.

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
