TripAdvisor is saying I should add more words but I'm totally speechless. This has by far been my best experience with food. From beginning to end everything was to perfection.

Probably one of THE best restaurants I have been to. From the service, the ambiance, and especially the food, and the way it is served and presented, everything was perfect. An absolute must visit, we also had a few vegetarians with us and they were well accomodated with food. The wine pairing was amazing, as was the non alcoholic pairing... More

This was one of the most exciting and mouth teasing meals I have ever had. We were fortunate to be able to take a long time and savour all the elements of the dishes as they were presented. A memorable meal indeed

This is a true, and extraordinary, fine dining experience. The experience begins when you enter the Orient Hotel on your way to the restaurant. The gardens, building, decor and atmosphere is Eastern - Indian, Turkish and/or Middle Eastern. The dining experience starts with the bread trolley - we were offered a number of different choices (about 10 I think) of... More

Delicious food and wine, beautiful presentation from a decadent light lunch, to an awe-inspiring five course dinner and ending with a superb breakfast. Dining at the Restaurant Mosaic is a culinary experience of high note nothing like I have ever experienced. Excellent, knowledgeable, friendly service. If you are into fine dining visiting Restaurant Mosaic is a must-do.

Exquisite food, lovely surroundings and great staff. Ask management for a visit to the wine cellar. It is unbelievable.

We spent an extraordinary Sunday lunch at Mosaic restaurant. Rated as the number 1 restaurant in the Greater Pretoria area on Tripadvisor, we were keen to find out more :-) And what a special place it is! From the moment you arrive, you are welcomed warmly, and while sipping on a glass of Madeira, you are taken to your table.... More

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.
