Description: Located in the Michelangelo Towers at the Nelson Mandela Square, Pigalle...
Located in the Michelangelo Towers at the Nelson Mandela Square, Pigalle Sandton has become a benchmark in urban-chic dining where government and business men and women swarm to wine and dine like kings and queens. The venue reflects the Goncalves brother's Mediterranean flair for life with its sumptuous vibe, specializing in exceptional seafood and superb international cuisine. There is something extraordinary for every palate at Pigalle with a sensational menu including impeccably prepared meat, fish and poultry dishes. Pigalle Sandton showcases elegant decor which sets a chic, up market ambience as well as successfully exhibiting and almost decadent yet exceptionally impressive urban-Baroque flavour. Lavish imported Italian fabrics, rich timber and gilded frames complete the opulent look and feel, while the smoking section boasts a breezy balcony with panoramic vistas of the Sandton CBD skyline.

The dinner was slighty delayed or we were too hungry. you always need a booking because the restaurant is highly preferred. The price was OK for such delightful dinner.

The caramelized pear and almond salad is to die for! And can be eaten as a main course! be sure to make a reservation as this its very... More

We attended a business dinner. Because we were so many people (60-80), we had a set menu, but that did not detract from the experience. The starter options were really nice. Mains (I had steak) were fantastic and the malva pudding dessert is a winner. Good wine selection, although our specific choice on the set menu was limited. Great restaurant.

This high quality restaurant, close to Sandton City Mall and the business hotels, is a perfect place to take business contacts. The menu is extensive, with a good selection of both shellfish, fish and red meat. The service is very professional, and rather fast, which I appreciate. It is a little bit pricey by South African standards, but still a... More

The hotel concierge said he would take his girlfriend there to eat:) The place itself is a little bit around the corner and not very visible. But the food was very good. For Europeans, who are not used to big meals, 3 courses might be a little too much. It was for us at least:) Price level next to European... More
