Description: Cantare is situated in Johannesburg's Premier Entertainment venue, Montecasino in Fourways. Cantare is the place for great food, cabaret shows and a party atmosphere, live the Cantare Experience. Dine in our pin-up styled Dining area underneath the watchful gaze of our pin-up girls. Our dishes are Mediterranean inspired, we have a touch of Mediterranean in all our plates. Let us entertain you with our Cabaret styled shows, we have something for everyone. From a little naughty to something nice, our Varga girls will be your entertainers for the night, but your evening is not over yet! The Cantare experience ends in the early hours of the morning let your hair down and dance your shoes off. Enjoy your nightcap at the Vintage Varga Bar where your thirst for life will be quenched. Our Varga girls enjoy dressing up, and so do we. A venue suited for large parties and intimate enough for your special moments, that is the Cantare experience.

I booked the occasions package for my wife for a special birthday treat. The service (online and on the night) was first class. Thank you Victoria!! Our table had a fantastic view of the show, as promised. the flowers on the table were stunning, our waiter could not have been more helpful, the sparkling wine was chilled and waiting. The menu offered some very good offers. The starters were chicken livers - the best ever tasted - and carpaccio. The mains were an excellent beef rump with green pepper sauce and a wonderful veal dish.

And the show was great - go and see the Varga Girls! This is a high energy cabaret / burlesque - a non-stop action routine. Roxy can really sing and all these girls can dance!! All for R770!! serious value for money.

A fun evening out, especially for larger groups - it gets a bit boisterous (as you would expect from a dinner-dance venue) so not ideal as a romantic dinner venue but perfect if you take along a few fun-loving friends.

Great wine list with an extremely comprehensive selection sure to tempt every taste bud and/or wallet.

Food was good and menu also quite extensive - nice veal and duck options for those wanting something a bit different from the usual JHB fare.

The show was entertaining, and the service good and efficient - overall highly recommended.

For our 25th anniversery, I was looking for a "dinner & dance" venue and was quite surprised at how few of these are around. We got excellent service and management went full out to make our celebration special. The selection on the menu is very good and food is of a high standard. The show was ok, not great but quite enjoyable. The only negative for us was that the dance music after the show was extremely loud which made good conversation in between dancing difficult.

The food was good and the menu options excellent. The review was only average - local dancing school standard - and the dance floor/satge quite small. Fun if you want someting between a disco and a decent dance venue. I recommend it for parties but not first dates or romatic outings - too noisy
