“Great city restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Situated in the huge Sandton Cty shopping complex this restaurant is a joy to visit. It is very busy so recommend booking. The food is excellent and beautifully presented. I always have the shellfish which is fresh and well cooked. The creme brulee for desert is a picture on a plate. Great evening out especially for special occasion.

“Saves this in your list”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

Nice restaurant in the Mandela Square area, close to the fowngown Sandton hotels. Service very good, food suslity good, wines bit pricy bug overall vslue for money. Do see this in an SA context. Globally this would be average. I know better restaurants in Sandton but nog in the downtown area. Ask fof a table away from the kitchen exit, because of waiter traffic. Seafood good, oysters fresh, but not the finesse you want. The mew zealand pinot noir is expensive but good, ask fof 2009 vintage. Once is enougj. Next time other restaurants need a visit

“Uber chic in Jhb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Pigalle is one of Sandton's premier dining destinations, hosting elite, government and captains of industry. Food is traditionally Portuguese. I usually only indulge in the seafood. Shellfish is fresh and traditionally prepared. A must is the ice cream biscuit cake as dessert. Dress to impress. Perfect for special occasions.
