It was our third time here. We usually reserve it for special occasions. The hostess (Robin was her name I think) was lovely and warm. She checked on us many times during the night. We had the quail and stuffed squid for starters, the duck and pork belly for mains, and the pumpkin cheesecake... read more

We saw it on Celebrity Master Chef South Africa and found it to be where we were going in a couple of weeks time and managed to get a booking in. The tasting menu with paired wines was excellent. Some of it, the best we have ever tasted. Also not expensive compared to anything like it (in Sweden). The atmosphere... More

Amazing food coupled with great service, is an extremely rare find. Service - our waitress was so attentive and friendly, not hesitating to assist us, no matter the request - yes she even took about 10 photos of my friends and I and explained the name of the restaurant to me, as I was quite curious about it :) Food...

I took my wife there for her birthday. Very good 5 course "tasting" menu and while expensive was worth it. We will go again and not necessarily to celebrate a birthday or anniversary.

Our party of 4 opted for the Set menu which consisted of a 6 course meal with wine pairing. Not only was the food well prepared and tasty, but the sommelier was particularly attentive and conveyed his choice of wine and gave us some interesting background to each wine pairing. Watch out though - it's not cheap (but then it... More

When we first drove up to DW11-13, we knew we were in the right spot by the signed awning over the property, but would never have expected to find fine dining on the back side of a strip mall on the lower level. Once you walk into the place though, the outside location evaporates. We made a booking for Sunday... More

I came here for a business lunch. It was brilliant; without doubt one of the best meals I've had in Jo'burg. Every mouthful, even of the complimentary hors d'ouevres, was heavenly.

A place to save and go to if you a foodie! We were unable to have the tasting menu, as everybody at the table had to be apart of the process. Was slightly disappointed by that. However the food was different was excellent. Very expensive all round you eat here to experience a take on food and to enjoy flavors... More
