“Villa Bianca offers it all!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

I was a first timer at Villa Bianca. Have heard many great reviews as such I had my graduation dinner their with my family. Super impressed with how extensive the menu is as well as the service. On arrival you get a little amuse bouche which just sets the scene for the evening ahead. Arthur (Owner) has the boys (& Girls) well trained. Keep it up. I will be sure to return!

“Continued greatness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We live in Francistown Botswana and there are no restaurants to write home about. When travelling to RSA we like to indulge in some fine dining. Vila Bianca provides this with great food, ambiance and service

“Has potential”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Our first visit to this restaurant was for a mothers day buffet and found the staff to be very friendly but obviously overwhelmed by the large mothers day crowd. Thus service was very hit and miss and the buffet line did not flow very well as it was obviously not designed for such large numbers. The food however, made up for a lot of the inconveniences. Starters were a bit light on options but what there was was very nice (with the exception of the tinned asparagus). Mains were REALLY good with a large selection for the carnivores and sea food lovers, though not really very Mediterranean. However, do not bother with dessert, the most inedible Tiramisu I have ever encountered and the rest was bland and only slightly better prepared.
I would like to try this restaurant on a 'normal' day as it has great potential.

“Great food, service and atmosphere - full recommendation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Villa Bianca is an excellent place: outside terrace for your pre-dinner drink, and either open air or inside dining. The staff is very friendly and looks very well after its guests, the menu is extensive, and the lobster I enjoyed was bigger than ever with great taste. I recommend you to book in advance, since when we were there, the place was packed on a Monday night... I will for sure return to this excellent restaurant.
