Scrumptious Spoil!

Having read and heard so much about Wombles, I was obviously delighted to celebrate a special occasion here with my hubby. We were not disappointed. Attentive service. Great food. Setting is stunning. A great night out!

goof food, good service and ambience. In Johannesburg security is key, and at this restaurant they have guards outside looking after your car

We visited Wombles for my husbands birthday. It had been recommended by friends. The moment we walked in we were impressed by the decor, welcome and staff. We had booked a table which is necessary as it is fully booked every night of the week! Which shows it popularity. The atmosphere was great as we were guided through the restaurant,... More

Absolutely my favorite Jhb restaurant Booking essential 011 880 2470 Charm atmosphere professionalism in abundance I believe that it is in the nature of business for something to go wrong occasionally Our table experienced a small problem which was promptly well taken care of Delicious food is a constant at Wombles.

Wombles Restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and ambiance and I can honestly recommend you to eat here! I have had the opportunity to eat here for business dinner, a couple dinner and will always go back there. The food is amazing and one of the best steaks I ever had. Wombles should be on your bucket list for restaurants!

Enjoyed a wonderful business dinner for a party of 5. Excellent wine selection, excellent service and great tasting steaks. I was not 100% happy with the trip of carpaccio starter...the condiments didn't compliment the meet and overpowered a delightful John X in my wine glass. And the bread could be better. All in all an excellent choice - I will... More

It's THAT kind of restaurant when you are looking to impress, romance or feel special. Ambiance is warm and welcoming, service is great and the food a cut above, overall a great experience.

You will be attentively served fabulous food at this classic JHB restaurant. Parking a bit dodgy in the street so we normally park in the centre next door. Enjoy!
