We recently experienced the outstanding 5 course wine pairing menu at the Test Kitchen. It was so refreshing to get excellent service that at no time imposed on what was a superb and very relaxed meal. What a delight! Each course was exceptional - both the food and the wine. A unique experience of what is possible.

After our visit in April we were fortunate enough to return to the Test Kitchen again. The menu has continued to evolve with new dishes being added (two new dishes that night alone). Clever use of smoke in some of the dishes (the new Fois Gras dish was worth the trip alone). To maintain the level of excellence and at... More

The food was outstanding. We had the Dinner Gourmand, 10 course option with wine pairing. The menu currently on the web isn't the up to date version, which had changed the day we went. It is innovative and almost every dish blew us away. I've eaten in a few really top class joints and this can compete with the best.... More

Had a fantastic lunch with our 2 daughters - enjoyed the tasting menu. Great fun to watch the chef's prepare the food and absolutely everything was delightful. Highly recommend! Service was outstanding as well.

This has to have been the finest culinary experience I have ever had. We could not get a table for dinner (booked up for 6 months), nor could we get a table for lunch. They said we could sit at the counter if that was ok with us. We accepted. If you are seriously interested in cooking. As to sit... More

The food quality is really good you look at least at 700 R per person including drinks. The food is latest fusion style european type. very fresh ingredients and tasty. So why not a 5 star... on the food end there is nothing new and amazing on an international scale. You can find this cuisine in other major cities. The... More
