Such a pity as the the hosts were welcoming. We had very average food that was actually bland. I didn’t enjoy the mushroom risotto at all. Dirty bathrooms as well.

Cannot praise this restaurant enough. Five stars for everything. Recommend the bar for a pre-dinner drink. If you like whiskey you must have the Centre of the Table Cocktail.

The most expensive cappucino I've ever had in Joburg. The food was nice but some menu items weren't available. Some attention to detail lacking. The butter had previously been melted. The waiter failed to offer the different sizes of coffee and just served the larger...More

Top quality dining in the popular Posthouse in Bryanston. Italian-inspired menu leaves you spoilt for choice - and food envy inevitable when all the beautifully presented dishes are served. Premium food at premium prices, so prepare to pay for the experience. The pork belly is...More

This place offers the best of Italian cuisine has to offer. There's a variety of international n locally brewed craft beers to choose from. Be sure to book a table as it's a very popular spot amongst Joburgs northerners.

Once again I note a previous respondents comment that - it seems that only replies are received to positive questions - and that the negative ones are ignored! Sad!
