“Culinary innovation in Sandton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Had a tasting menu with the family here. It's great to see restaurants such as five hundred coming up in Joburg, the food was beautifully presented and full of subtle flavours and textures. What really made the meal stand out was the wine pairings, which included outstanding wine from vineyards that I had never even heard of! The sommelier is seriously keeping up with the chefs here!

“Blown Away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We were the chef's first Chef's table. It felt like the well-oiled machine had been running for years. David Higgs and his team were delightful. Book this restaurant now! It is truly world- class. The Michelin guide should come and take a turn here.
