“Excellent... but am I worthy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We were staying in the area for business and found this place. Atmosphere is top notch. Not too bright with a ambiance of quality. Variety of dishes are endless. Poultry, Fish, Sushi, Beef, Pasta and Pizza. Everything is there. They have a vast amount of wine choices, albeit on the pricier side. Food is prepared quickly and exactly as per your requirements. Waitrons are extremely well trained and can tell you the details of each dish and recommend the most appropriate wine to match.

One small thing I don't like in a restaurant is when you are left feeling like a cheap skate. Not everyone South Africa can afford a R300 bottle of wine and a R200 meal. Even if we are there on business, we are limited by our allowances. In some instances during the evening, I felt like the expensive items were too strongly pushed. Waitrons should be careful on how they maintain a balance of being very helpful without pushing for the pricy stuff too hard risking leaving the customer with a feeling of not being worthy of eating there.

In spite of this, I would still recommend them highly. A very classy establishment.

“Good value and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

This restaurant has been around for several years in an area where so many change or close down. The food is really good and well worth the price - good value.

“delicious prawns”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

We went for a family outing to Villa Bianca. Their starter special with mushrooms and asparagus was delicious. The prawns (queen) were very good but someone else at our table had the kings, I preferred them and will go for kings next time. Food was delicious just ask them to pls make sure they serve the veggys hot as all our veggys were ice cold. Steak flambéed was also delicious and its flambeed at the table which is nice. All in all lovely would go back
