It is about the food

The place is hard to find. The menu is only available on line. The décor is nothing to write home about. The food is some of the best I have ever had, in 5 continents No alcohol licence BYOBs No corkage. If you appreciate good food, this is the place to go in Johannesburg. Booking... read more

Simply one of the best culinary extravaganzas in Johannesburg. The taste and sight experience must be sampled at least once in your life. A changing menu makes repeat visits a must. To my mind the best option is the food and wine pairing. Make sure you come hungry and book Uber.

We really enjoyed the fine dining experience. Some dishes took us out of our comfort zone and introduced us to new flavours and ingredients. Overall the food was beautifully prepared, delicious and well pared with home made drinks. Staff were very friendly and passionate about their restaurant. Who knew so many small dishes can make you so full!!! Loved it

The food and atmosphere are tremendously enjoyable. The staff is attentive and the chefs explain each dish thoroughly. The team also caters to allergy concerns quite nicely...we had a wonderful evening!

Fantastic concept with 10 small courses- each done to perfection with some exciting flavour combinations. You can tell care and thought is put behind each months menu. The food is fun and beautifully presented by the chef that made the dish. You feel special. However not the most romantic Atmosphere, as it's quite noisy, but doesn't matter when the food... More

1. The food was amazing! 2. The service 3. The setting - it's quite a small restaurant with about 5 tables it so so it's very intimate. The only thing I didn't quite like is that you bring your own wine - the establishment is not licensed for wine. I'm not sure why

Visited Cube a few weeks ago and found it splendid. Easy to find but parking is a hassle on the roadside. You have to bring your own wine, which we did, I preferred this to having to pay for overpriced wine like it is at most places these days! The service was great, the food fabulous and having the opportunity... More

Every dish is an art work and a taste explosion. Atmosphere is loud and relaxed. Setting is practical and makes it all about the food and nothing else. The wine experience is what you want it to be

The unprepossessing façade of the restaurant belies the culinary magic that is Cube. Degustation menus have become de rieuger at fine dining establishments. If this what you like, this one is not to be missed. Prepare for a three or four hour evening. This is perfect for an occasion with people who you like, as you are there for the... More

Really enjoyed the experience that Cube brought to the table (literally and figuratively). A real Masterchef experience with food so beautiful it is almost a shame to eat. A must for all foodies.
