I Used to love this restaurant. Then the glamorous sister restaurant , 500, opened and we fell under her spell. Recently I visited Qunu again and I realized that this is a mistake- everything about Qunu is great. The service, wine list, ambience and then- my favourite thing- steak Diane. More than food- it's an experience. I will be back!

I must admit, it was not at all what i expected. The ambience, service, food and food presentation blew me away. I did not have a reservation but was fortunate to meet staff who sorted that out for me in a heartbeat. They toured me around the place and really made me feel welcomed. The food was absolutely delish, great... More

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

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
