We visited the hotel for afternoon tea to celebrate a birthday. The savoury selection are perhaps not classical afternoon tea fare but was amazing and especially the sushi lovers in our group were treated with a feast. The chocolate cake served was out of this world! Highly recommended for a special occasion.

I came to Michelangelo's three times in two days; once for a meal and twice for a drink. It is a great alternative to the busy restaurants on Nelson Mandela square. The food here was excellent, and the service top notch. There is also a closed courtyard/lounge/bar area which is great to enjoy a drink. If you're lucky, someone will... More

For me, this place was overrated. It is not very romantic and the waiters are not very attentive. The food was average and over priced. We left very quickly. I wouldn't go back.

It was one of the most amazing evenings. We had a great menu, well trained professional staff, the service was excellent, the wine pairings accompanied each dish very well. I will recommend this to everyone. Keep it up. I cannot wait for our next gourmet dinner!
