Brilliant

Food was brilliant (worth the price), great selection of wine and waiters were best I have seen in a long time. Was there on a Friday night, had a very romantic/elegant feel with soft live music in the background.

An impressively delicious dining experience. I had the confit of duck which was very tender and flavourfull and the cheese platter for 2, easily fed the 4 of us. Excellent service. The live music did not add to the dining experience though.

This place would easily qualify for a two star Michelin rating. Superb service and exceptionally presented food that tastes sublime. A definite place to spend a long lunch or evening if you are in the Sandton area. Pricey, but superb value in ZAR, in $'s, E's or GBP's a joke, as this quality would be 3 to 4 times the... More

My husband and I were here not long ago for dinner. We both ordered salad starters followed by steak and duck. The salads were really big and I could have eaten that on its own. If you are going to order a starter, probably best to share it. The mains are also really generous portions which we couldn't finish. Desserts... More

After experiencing the quiet and cosy Signature in Brooklyn (Pretoria), we were curious to visit the Morningside one. Nothing to say about the food, which was as good ans somehow original as the other one, but insonorization is insufficient and it was a pain to sustain a friendly conversation. And we had to wait almost one hour to get our... More

This Restuarant ticks the expected boxes. Fine dining, with service and food as expected. And yet something is missing. Our experience was just ok. I found it overpriced and overrated.

The atmosphere was fantastic, with music in the background and enough privacy for every table in the restaurant. However, the food is a bit overrated, with expensive dishes but not so good quality and quantity. The meat that we ordered was dry and not as shown in the pictures of the menu. We expected better quality for the price charged... More

Booked well in advance and specifically asked for a table with a view. Instead got a table in the corner with no view and no legroom. The wine list is exactly what you would expect to see at tourist trap like the square at Santon City (with local wines all overpriced). The food was pretty average and overpriced too. Will... More
