“Great bistro!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Fantastic restaurant - great service and very interesting menu, including rabbit dishes which are relatively rare in JHB. Chef always makes a point of checking on his guests which is a nice touch!

“Always enticing food - slightly quirky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Whenever you need a business dinner venue - Thomas Maxwell delivers. Love the fries, steak is reliably great, and some of the deserts ate dangerously good

“Really a great choice for a romantic dinner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

A very classy restaurant experience without being pretentious. The menu is simple yet perfectly executed. The flavours are well thought out and complement each other very well. The ambience is great and one feels that a lot of care has been taken to ensure that it is right. The service is top. For a romantic meal this should be your first choice. Just make sure you book.

“Great place in Parkmore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

The food is always good, love the mussels and always have a good selection of wine. Kevin's rocky road dessert is to die for and to share for sure
