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.

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.

Very traditional white tablecloth dining in a mall...but excellent service, food and bar. Shared the seafood plate for two which was superb. Peri peri chicken livers were also great.

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

My wife and I visited Pigalle Sandton tonight and had an overall excellent experience. From the tasty complimentary amous bouchée to the comprehensive menu and good service, there was nothing really to fault. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her black mussel starter as did I the Camanbert Croquettes, and the lamb in phyllo pastry which we both had for main course... More

I attended the restaurant on Saturday. We asked the waiter for the specials and she said they did not have any. We eventually coaxed four specials out of her. He left the table only taking half the drinks orders. I ordered the chicken with param ham the Dijon mustard sauce was overpowering. My friend ordered the line fish which was... More

I first saw this restaurant in Chennai, India...well same name...lol. I had lunch at this place on a Sunday and was advised that any other day you would need to book a table. The service was awesome. The waiter knew all of the food and his recommendations was awesome. The food was good but not true value for money. If... More

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
