“Best burger in Joburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

We had lunch by the pool after spa treatments, great view over the garden, good wine list and great food. The naan bread was somewhat unusual, but my burger was excellent, prepared as ordered. Service is a bit basic, but the smile makes up for that. We saw one of SA's best chefs, David Higgs there, he has started at the Saxon and will make it even better!

“Most relaxing and elegant enjoyment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

We have enjoyed breakfast and dinner in the Saxon restaurant and the wine cellar and every single experience has been an elegant affair! Our favourite Sunday afternoon venue however is the pool deck. The menu is varied,offering light snacks or more filling meals. Service is typical Saxon - attentive and caring. One of three very knowledgeable sommeliers hover to enhance the experience. The main feature is the back ground jazz music provided by a very entertaining saxophonist. The music is never intrusive, but highly enjoyable! Add the sprawling views and the fact you feel you are in the bush, far away from the city; and a Sunday afternoon at the Saxon is like a (too) short holiday!
