This is a wonderful place to grab a bite and a drink on your weekend evenings. There is a live DJ so the music and ambience is wonderful and it is located right in the middle of where you want to be on a Friday night

We were a group of 12 people staying in Melville whilst participating at World Masters' Squash Championships. We dined out on all of our 9 nights, and chose Poppy's twice On entry we were immediately accommodated at a rearranged table with no fuss. A drink waiter appeared magically, and had us all on side, with or without alcohol. The menu... More

Service is okay, but the strong drinks make up for that. It's a very popular place and it can be difficult to find a place to sit so go early.

THIS is the 4th time at this Melville restaurant. A nice animated place frequented be a large cross section of people. Visitors (like me ) would walk past because it looks like a diner. If it is a diner then it's one of those with excellent faire. Whatever I've eaten today or past visits and the food of my friends... More

We went there for a quick lunch, food was really nice! I had the Alfredo pasta. Friendly staff and cozy atmosphere. Defiantly a wonderful place to go for supper!! The cakes was a bit of a let down.

Wow. What am incredible place. I went on a Sunday evening with a friend. It had loud sing along music and was packed with happy people so we tried our luck for a table. Waiter was helpful and seated us in the side room until a table opened. Our drinks were served quickly and shortly thereafter we had a table... More

I'm an American student who went to Poppy's earlier tonight for dinner with my fellow students, and it was incredibly uncomfortable. We came on comedy improv night, which is Monday nights, and the MC called us out of the crowd a bit to ask us where we were visiting from (and all was well with that, of course!) but that... More

This place looks from the outside to be a brunchy type bakery with cakes and pastries. Don't be fooled. We went in for dinner last night, and had the most fantastic grilled hake, followed by a sublime sticky toffee pudding. We had planned to go back tonight (Sunday), but there was live music on and it was extremely loud, so... More

On a recent visit to Johannesburg we ate here on several occasions. The pizza on the last night was lovely but the fillet steak was amazing - cooked just right! A slightly odd choice of rice to go with it but the homemade chili sauce made up for this. Bought several bottles to take home and it's a firm favourite... More
