Definitely one of the best resturants in Sandton City... their portion sizes are huge! so if you have a small appetitie best to share. Their salads and pizzas are really tasty. But what is even better are their amazing cakes... I have had their red velvet, rainbow and chocolate cake slices and they were all sensational! A bit expensive... but... More

Do yourself a favour and order the muesli and fruit honey pot. Delicious! The waiters are really friendly and well-trained and the new extended restaurant is beautiful. We could have been in a posh restaurant in Europe! Even though our order took a long time to come, the waiter came to explain that the pawpaw (papaya) they had in the... More

The staff are always willing to please and are friendly with a smile. The breakfast we had today was outstanding as usual being presented in fine dining tradition. I had the healthy option which did... More

On a flying visit to Sandton City we fancied a quick bite and were taken by the look of Walnut Grove, so decided to give it a try. What a lovely surprise it was ! Classy, smart and clean interior with fantastic displays of cakes and pastries as you enter. Seating was comfortable and private, service with a smile, food... More

In the space of 3 days we came here for breakfast and several times for coffee. The decor is beautiful and the service friendly and efficient. The ladies toilets immaculate and very nicely decorated. The coffee is fantastic and they serve it with fresh pouring cream rather than the awful UHT prewhip you usually get. Along with a baby sized... More

Some say that you can tell a lot about a place by the look of their restroom- and the Walnut Grove's ladies' room is exquisite!! I usually find pleasure in new and unique things which is represented by the Walnut Grove's location and through its interior decor and atmosphere. Their range of sweet treats are attractive to the eye and... More
