I was pleasantly impressed by my visit to the Restaurant Pigalle as soon as I walked in to this establishment. The atmosphere was one of elegance and, at the same time, cosiness. I got the immediate feeling of reassurance that we were going to have a nice evening meal here. My local hosts had chosen this restaurant for our company... More

Went there for a business lunch, beautiful setting, suburb service, excellent wine list and fantastic food. If you're ever scared of being embarrassed with mediocre service and or food for a special occasion this is the place to visit for a 100% WOW.

Pigalle Bedfordview must be one of the finest restaurants in Johannesburg. Everything, including the setting, furnishings, cutlery, waitron uniforms and even the food, just speaks class. I tried the Pork Belly and my partner the Greek Salad with a salmon side dish. We both found our meals delicious, although my pork was slightly on the fatty side and I found... More

Great for quality and just nothing to point from service to food quality. It is a pleasure to have a waiter that has full knowledge of all dishes in detail. It makes it real value for money.

We had dinner and enjoyed very much. Really good food with fresh ingredients and excellent value for money. We will rather pay slightly a little bit more, but get good quality. The service was also great and very friendly. The waiter knew his menu very well and did great recommendations. This restaurant will see us again.

This is one of the restaurants had had always wanted to visit and when I finally did, it stood up to its reputation. From the very well crafted decor which really stood out for me to the professional waiters. Our food was great, the presentation was everything sophisticated. My favorite was the chocolate fondant dessert which was baked to order,... More

We visit Pigalle every now and then and service is always excellent, the food is of a very high quality and the presentation always good. I love their prawn curry and they serve an amazing Creme Brulee. The perfect dining spot for date nite or a family dinner... I will recommend any time.

The restaurant is in a safe location. It looks really posh and I liked the decoration and the atmosphere. My food however was terrible, and I think it's overpriced for what you get.
