Wasting words that could never do Chantal's creating justice is not what I am going to do. All I can say is that Mosaic is an absolute must do for anyone who professes to love food. Thank you for sharing your talent with our taste buds.

Restaurant Mosaic is excellent in every way from the fabulous food by the Top Chef - (each dish was beautifully presented and delicious) to the wonderful service to the fabulous buildings, decor and sumptuous comfort - it was a total surprise to us and a really unsurpassable treat if you are looking for something incredibly special - it couldn't have...

Rising like an Oriental folly in the midst of a lush nature reserve, the Mosaic could be an Indian palace or a Balinese temple. Massive outside doors, hewn from glowing slabs of hardwood, swing open to reveal a cool, eclectic interior furnished with carved wooden chests, art nouveau sculpture, carefully chosen paintings and, rather incongruously, a battered old valise from...

Wow, what a wonderful experience - again. My third trip to Mosaic did not disappoint. The food was in one word AMAZING. The sheer attention to detail, from the plate on which the food is served, up to detailed information on the actual dish and ingredients, was an experience on its own. To add to this, we stayed over at... More

I think it only would be fair to start with the surroundings and the tranquility this place has to offer. It exceeds all expectations, beautiful buildings, lush gardens, art gallery and beautiful decorated hotel rooms. It is superb. Then we can start with the fine dining and the "Wine Bible". This is true fine dining at its best. The personal... More

We were invited by a good friend to this fine restaurant for his 50th birthday. All my expectations were exceeded in every possible way. The food was incredible. Not only was it presented exceptionally creatively but it also tasted superb! Personal attention from chef Chantel Dartnell was also a bonus as well as the fantastic wines presented by the well...

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
