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.

I was so glad to spend Mother's Day lunch at my favourite restaurant. The ambiance as always was amazing. Service was great! And as always the Pigalle Platter is PERFECT! The kingklip was very dry and spoiled the lunch. Even though our meal was replaced, it was disappointing that my favourite restaurant could make a colossal mistake such as that... More

We Discovered by chance Pigalle thanks to a friend who was installed there. Very clean, very nice place, select by pricing. Staff very professional. Everything you order with be good. My preferred choice is the seafood plate without fish and with additional calamari; the sausage is excellent and the rise is Perfect. You can enjoy a lot variety of shrimps.... More

We have been to this restaurant once and I will not be going back. We ordered oysters and the one that I had was not good and I was sick the next day. Also between my husband and I we ordered a seafood platter for 2. We specifically asked them not to spice it and just to add lemon butter... More

Oh just remembered when I had a wonderful lunch during my weekend stay at the Michelangelo. Me and my partner decided to have lunch In the Sophisticated Pigalle. The decor and atmosphere is definitely calming and beautiful. We were seated in the smoking area next to the window and the view was quite beautiful. The welcome was great, friendly staff.... More

I can't say that I was impressed, its really dressed up to portray a high class restaurant but I was disappointed with my food. I had a salad and I usually judge these by the ratio of lettuce to the other ingredients. The lettuce far outweighed the rest! This is something that really drives me mad! If you serve such... More

We took my mom to Pigalle Sandton for Mother's day lunch, once you step into the restaurant you think you're in a different country... the food was beyond what we expected, I think for the quality of food it's well worth the price.

This is a nice fresh seafood restaurant with good service. I usually have the grilled shellfish platter with a nice (and large) salad. Colleagues had lobster and line fish and all were enjoyed. The wine list is not extenisve, but some good options.
