Have eaten here several times and have always been impressed. one of the top restaurants in South Africa. Chantell is a highly commendable chef and if we had Michelin starts in this country there definately be one or two awarded here.

I took my dad to Mosaic for fathers day and we had the most incredible meal. Service was exemplary and for a Sunday lunch it's a delight of a place as you get to see the craziness that is The Orient. We had the set menu and it was a beautiful balance of food that satisfied without overfilling you. The... More

Although we have heard a lot of good things about the restaurant, we have only visited this March as it was a a bit further from Johannesburg. Not only did we have one of our best meals in and around Johannesburg in a long time, the unique venue, the great service and the way everything comes together just make the... More

Restaurant Mosaic is situated on the premises of the Orient Hotel, a truly luxurious Middle Eastern gem situated in the bushveld at the base of the Magaliesberg Mountains. Just entering the grounds of the hotel was an experience all of its own which heightened our excitement for the meal to follow. We were greeted by our wait staff and shown... More

Hosted a dinner for 20 guests at this exclusive restaurant and was blown away. The whole experience was world class. It started from the moment one arrived. Being early I spent time in the Tienie Pritchard Museum which showcases his extensive work. A hidden gem, tastefully done and very informative. Germain the sommelier gave us a tour of the extensive... More

One can write pages singing the virtue of this establishment. But nothing will prepare you for what you about experience. As an experience frequenter of the finest dining establishments in Europe. This is the restaurant that blew me away. A definite 2 Michelin star contender and nor far away from that prestigious 3rd star. Stop pining. Just go there and... More

This restaurant concentrates food tasting and wine pairing menu's. Their cuisine is usually a 5 or 7 course meal with almost perfect wine pairings. Whilst really good they could add a bit more food to each dish, besides that wonderful food.

After our first visit in January we returned for another fantastic stay. The wine pairing with the outstanding cuisine was amazing. The friendly warm efficient service was as superb as our first visit and the breakfast next morning was also of the highest standard. Mari and Chantel run a remarkable hotel & restaurant that has to be seen to be... More
