The walnut, bacon and truffle pasta is to die for ! The décor is trendy and interesting . The service is a bit slow at times, but believe me the food is worth the wait !

Walnut Grove is my absolute favorite place to grab a coffee after an afternoon of shopping. Last night I decided to try out something to eat on the menu! The house white wine is pretty decent and the wraps are really good too. Waiters are friendly and the venue also has free WiFi

We used to be regulars at Walnut Grove, but with their literally bad food and don't-care attitude regarding customer complaints, we will NEVER eat there again and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to stay away. We were a party of 4 and waited over 40 minutes for our food to arrive even though it was a... More

Though I did have some initial problem connecting to the free wifi.Everything else seem to be very well organised.I had a glass of hot chocolate, and it came with a freebie-yummy tiny velvet cupcake. I love the ambience of the place.Very well done interior... More

We’re been there a few times, and each time the portions seem to be getting bigger and bigger. There is sometimes a small cue, but they quickly arrange a seat for you which is great. The staff are friendly, never seen the management, not entirely a bad thing though.

Walnut Grove was actually our second choice when it came to picking a restaurant, we had originally wanted to go to JB's but they tried to squeeze 5 of us into a tiny 4-seater table so we decided to try something else. Walnut Grove was option 2 and in the end we were actually thankful we hadn't stayed at the... More

Great ambience, perfect place for a break when shopping. I had a fancy hot chocolate, my husband had a cappuccino, and it was a great way to recharge.

The Walnut Grove is a feast for all senses! For the eye: beautiful, uncluttered decor, attention to details and stunning dishes presentation. The cakes table is amazing! For the mouth: fresh tasting dishes, with just the right combination of ingredients. The cakes are to die for. For the nose: no kitchen smell and very clean toilets. For the soul: prompt... More

We were up in Johannesburg for the weekend and stumbled across the Walnut Grove. For any lover of cake, this is the place to go. The cakes are enormous, the variety is good and they are very, very fresh. We had the carrot cake and the cheesecake and both were amazing! The cheesecake was my favourite, one of the best... More
