Everything in this glamorous restaurant is average... Apart from the prices and the decor. The food is really not worth what you pay, the service is slow and not friendly and everything about this restaurant is underwhelming. I won't be back.

This restaurant shouldn't be charging what it does! Not when your waiter has a very bad attitude and your food takes forever to arrive. Then my fish was dry :-( To top it off, half of the desserts on the menu were not available, no chocolate fondant, no choc mousse, no choc brownie etc etc. Really??? A rip off in... More

First restaurant meal in Jo'burg, and what a treat. Our waiter was fantastic, and we were a big table, and the menu was a feast for the eyes. The food was fantastic, and very reasonably priced for a good quality restaurant. The wine menu is also excellent, and we were all thanked for our custom by the manager on the... More

I just love the elegance and style of Pigalle in Sandton and indulge in the memoriy of many wonderful and indeed romantic moments there (although I also had business dinners there - just because it has the right style). It is popular with celebrities, politicians, business people. And with me. I believe there are two ways to prepare food: to... More

The food was served at the same time but the fish was still frozen inside. By the time my husband finished eating his prawns which he thoroughly enjoyed my fish finally came. By than my appetite had gone. For such a grand restaurant it's unfortunate that the experience was so miserable

There is really nothing to dislike in this restaurant! From the moment we stepped in - the owner Johnny, the manager the waiters are at your service! The food is top grade- their fish/seafood/ oysters always super fresh! Highly recommend the ostrich and duck too..Great selection of wines..On each of our visits to Jhb we return to eat there and...

The seafood is fantastic and the mood of the restaurant is super. I do think they can greatly improve their service. To me this restaurant is not consistent in standard. What I mean by that is the food seems to set one standard while the rest of the establishment doesn't quite match up. Small details such as being stretched over... More

It was a very good experience dining in this restaurant. Excellent menu and very friendly service. We were a team of eight and everybody ordered different dishes and all turned out to be excellent.

I was invited by a good freind and associate to a business dinner. It had been some time since my last visit to Pigalles and I have forgotten how good this place is. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. Every move was read with careful precision and no mistake was made with a wine list for... More
