My goodness what a treat this restaurant was - I can truly say that I have never eaten such a beautifully presented and cooked meal either in South Africa or abroad! It was outstanding from the time we arrived - a bit flustered from being late as we got a tad lost! Chef Chantel came and welcomed us personally in... More

This is a very special restaurant to visit and not your usual. With interior that blows your mind, a menu out of this world and a well known chef not only in South-Africa but also abroad, you can be sure that you will experience something very different and special. Each course of food is meticulously planned and prepared by this... More

What an outstanding restaurant. Every time you visit is an experience. The food, the wine, the ambience. Chantal has the most beautiful smile when she tells you about the food and its preparation. You can see that this absolute passion just spells success - even the staff breathe it. You have to experience it!!!!!!!

Mosaic is an absolute gem if you can afford the prices. Yes, in terms of world prices, the cost of a meal at the Mosaic is within limits, in terms of affordability for the average South African it is totally out of bounds. We used to visit Mosaic but have decided that it is no longer an option. It is... More

Dear MadforitalyPretoria Thank you for your compliments, although it seems like you have chosen our most extensive Degustation menu consisting of nine courses with international wine pairing. We do have three smaller menu options as well for a third of the price mentioned and an option for non-alcoholic beverage pairing for the designated drivers. Hopefully when you read this, you...

We celebrated a friend's 50th and were treated to an incredible culinary adventure. Chef Chantel Dartnall deserves every bit of praise as well as all the accolades for the beautiful art and taste sensations that that she presents on every plate. This was our best meal ever and neither photos nor descriptions would do justice to the experience we had.

A dream came true...to be fortunate enough to eat in Chef Chantel Dartnall's Mosaic and to able to stay in the Orient. A warm welcome by Marie, the owner and being surprised by a room upgrade. Our greatest expectations were met. An intriguing venue with lavish attention to detail. A non alcoholic aperitif and a glass of wine on arrival.... More

The Chef here is the best chef in South Africa. She is very popular and has won some of the best awards given to Chefs. The food was the best i have ever had. And the grounds you can walk on after your meal are so so beautiful.
