We went for the 3 course option. The food was very good - some of the best I've had in JHB. I had a sliced duck starter, followed by an amazing beef fillet and a chocolate and caramel dessert. The restaurant is small so booking ahead is important.

Had a quick 2 course Sunday lunch at Winehouse restaurant. Love the colours of the restaurant and the relaxed setting. Menu is well balanced and the food was really well presented and tasted fresh with confident flavours. Food just lacked a bit of seasoning overall but otherwise great.

What an awesome place for a three course Sunday Lunch with Jazz. Food was really impeccable, outdoors with a large group. Very relaxed venue, out in the garden with good food, wine and service. Definitely worth a visit especially on Jazz Sundays!

I tried the pork belly and hock and was blown away. The lamb was also spectacular. The wine list is extraordinary and I will definitely keep coming back here. I could spend all day in the gardens relaxing

Living in the area, we have been regular patrons of the Ten Bompas restaurant. Huge fans of the original Sides restaurant, we endured the decline through the failed steakhouse exercise, as well as the initially disappointing relaunch of Winehouse. We recently tried again for a Sunday lunch, with news of a promising young chef from nearby Cube at the helm.... More

The restaurant is really crisp and looks like a place where you want to be - clean and classy. The service is very good too.

We'd been here a few years ago and were only moderately satisfied. It's now called the Winehouse at Ten Bompas. This visit was altogether enjoyable.
