We were invited by friends to share in their 70th birthday celebration. Excellent service and a lovely atmosphere. The food was very good and the desserts were to die for!! Thoroughy enjoyable and will certainly visit again. The only complaint is that there is no paring available from Aries street (parking on the pavement) and only once inside were told... More

I was treated to Brasserie de Paris for my birthday this year and it was a real treat. French Onion Soup was very good (but le Souffle in Fourways is better), shared Chateaubriand as a main was more than sufficient and done to perfection for a fillet. Wine selection is extensive but not intimidating (except for some prices). Remember to... More

We were there on two evenings, once just as a couple trying their menu de degustation including the recommended wine selection and once as a part of a group with a set dinner. Overall good quality French-style food with mostly South African wines. During the winter months heating is only partly effective, and some guests wore a coat during dinner.

superb ambience - classically modern residence with restaurant. great service. had the 5 course meal - each course was perfection but miniscule. great for ladies, but men will starve... but as I say, the perfect treat for a lady. thanks to my two good friends that treated me to this delight!!

On the eve of winter 2014, we had the most WONDERFUL dinner at Brasserie de paris. Accommodating, friendly staff and of course exceptional food. Dished out a hefty R360 for the set menu. Worth every penny. If you do visit, notice the beautiful architecture of the house. 5 star all the way

All the hype, very little of everything else. Staff is not up to par and for the price of the food one could get better at other upmarket restaurants.

This is the first time we have been back to Brassier de Paris in 10 years. How disappointing. We waited at least an hour for each course. Rossi was oily, I had a sole which was over cooked and soaked in oil. At R 180,00 a plate I would of expected something better. The best was the chocolate fondant which... More

This is a great dining experience, everything just right from the time you walk in. Very polite greeting, great table service, not crowded, limited but very good menu and the server was fantastic. We had specials of French Onion soup and Sole, both very well prepared, well presented and extremely tasty, we enjoyed it.

I chose this restaurant a year ago, to celebrate our engagement and my wife's birthday. We did the 5 course degustation menu with wine pairing and enjoyed it so, that we repeated it a year later in April 2014. We were happy to find that there have been no price increases since last year. Its an intimate setting, with a... More

Set in a residential house built of concrete (which was modern 30 years ago) this French Restaurant has been serving excellent French inspired food for 21 years. Not romantic or intimate setting unfortunately. But always fabulous food. The wines and service just as good. We were there for lunch and I believe dinner is more intimate and romantic.
