Daniel and Anne Catherine become one of the best team around. great Belgian influence, good selection of wines, strong owner/chef personality, something not found elsewhere. if you want to eat real food like kidners crème brullèe , it is the place to go. I have been so many times there, but everytime, Daniel creates something to remember.

Run by a Belgian this is restaurant above the level of a lot of others. In Europe it would have one or even two Michelin stars. The food is exceptional delicious and the service outstanding. The chef regularly joins his customers for a chat and also the wine list is of a high level. A place not to miss when... More

Being married for less than a day we were treated to lunch at this lovely restaurant by a friend. Staff are friendly. The food is amazing. However the day we went there was only one pescatarian main meal available (fish) which limited our choice tremendously. We were too full to try dessert which was a bit of a shame since... More

I have been visiting la madeleine since its early days in Sunnyside. I have never been disappointed by the ambience, service and cuisine.

Out of the way (hard to find unless you go with someone who knows it), incredibly lovely old farmhouse in beautiful grounds with charming indoors and outdoor seating. The fixed price Sunday three-course menu is amazingly good value. Food is supposed to be Belgian but is more French. The head chef and patron, Daniel, comes to your table to tell... More

Having heard many people praise La Madeleine, we thought it ideal for a charming Sunday lunch. This was, however, not the case. Not taken by the style and decor of the restaurant, we skeptically sat down hoping the food would make up for the lack of quality we immediately sensed walking up to the cylex walls and green pool. To... More

Whenever we are in Pretoria for work, we love going to La Madeleine. The food is absolutely fantastic, tasteful, beautifully presented and you can't resist not going back! With no menu, every dish is prepared to perfection on the evening. Wine list is also very promising. Thank you once again for a wonderful dinner. See you again soon!

On 28 April 2016, my fiancé and I went to La Madeleine for the first time. We arrived and was welcomed by the great staff and owner of the restaurant. The food was out of this world and the service spectacular. My starter was the Crab soup and my fiancé ordered the Mushroom with puff pastry, I have never tasted... More
