I recently went for dinner at The Saxon's Qunu Grill and the first word that springs to mind, although not particularly imaginative, is "WOW". To start, I ordered half a dozen oysters. Quite possibly the best I've had in Johannesburg. For mains, the choice was between the Steak Diane and a fillet with mushroom sauce. I went with the fillet.... More

A girlfriend of ours decided to take a sabattical so we decided to treat her to a lunch - our choice Qunu couldn't have been better chosen to make her feel that much special. We started off in the beautiful setting at the outdoor seating. But it proved a bit nippy so we decided to take a table indoors. You... More

Qunu is an excellent choice for a brunch or lunch in Johannesburg. Limited much menu but excellent burgers, and great service. Good value for money, beautiful setting!

If you want to spoil yourself or friend the Sunday brunch at Qunu restaurant at the Saxon is a must and should be on everyone's bucket list.

We had breakfast and dinner here while staying at the Saxon for the weekend. The breakfast selection is lavish (although I have had Sunday brunch here in the past and that takes the cake) and you linger at the restaurant just to savour the tastes and the gorgeous room. The dinner menu is an all-rounder and the food did not... More

This was our first visit to Qunu for the Sunday brunch, and it certainly won't be the last. The cold buffet was outstanding and, being the fish lover that I am, I was overjoyed at the selection of crayfish tails, oysters, salmon, etc that was available. I didn't even make it for the remaining pastries, quiches, cold meats and cheeses... More

We visited for lunch on a warm Johannesburg summer day. We specifically wanted to have lunch somewhere outside, so we booked on the Terrace. From the moment you arrive, you're transported to a world of wonder and opulence. The security guards at the gate had a note of our booking. Once we parked our car, our chauffeur was ready to...

We started our two week trip of South Africa at Qunu, and we weren't let down at all. It was superb, and we got great service (which isn't a given in South African we were to find out over the next few weeks!). The food was spot on, as were the wine recommendations. It comes highly recommended from us, and... More
