To celebrate a special occasion I spoilt my wife with a visit to this long standing fine dining venue. I fully expected it to be expensive and in this I was not disappointed. The meal and service was good and I have no complaints. But I question whether it delivered the same 'wow" dining experience as in the past. It... More

This is an extremely good restaurant tucked away in a suburban centre that is worth finding. The reception was welcoming and warm, the service very friendly without becoming invasive, the menu was impressive and we really needed at least three visits to try all the choices we wanted. Alas our visit was short but we really enjoyed the meal. The... More

I celebrated mothers day at 9th Avenue Bistro with my folks, wife and inlaws. Six people in attendance and six people impressed beyond words. 3 course meal at R250 per head was such fantastic value and scrumptious. My fourth time here. Im an ADDICT and do not want to be cured.

We came here for dinner and the service was great! It's a very traditional restaurant, quiet, nice food and good service! I found the menu a little boring but maybe I have just been spoilt for choice at other places! I had the steak frites and my fillet was cooked beautifully! However I was a little disappointed that for the... More

Ninth Avenue is our go-to when it comes to date night. Incredible adventurous meals with attentive service. The menu is always changing to accommodate what is in season. You wont find any run-of-the-mill meals here - expect gastronomical delights!

For a table of 16 people, we could not have wished for better service and the meal served to perfection. This quaint and delightful restaurant offers a personal service with excellent food. We had starters, main and dessert of which all was of exceptional standards.
