“Yummm!! Time and Again....”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This is our second visit to this superb restaurant and I just wanted to assure you that all is on track for this culinary extravaganza to continue unabated. The number of guests has grown with the growth of a new separate section but our concern that the quality would suffer was soon dispelled. The menu had changed too (liked the approach to change) and the dishes were less "alternate" - I hope this is not the trend as the chefs need to challenge the boundaries to retain the core of their ethos (as I understand and like it). The delight is in enjoying previously unthought of combinations and concoctions. Visit this place else you have missed a unique tasting experienced - and how often can one say that?

“Exceptional food and service”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

A nice change from the tedium of eating in chain restaurants in malls. The food is excellent as was the service and BYO to boot. It is a pity there are not more restaurants like this in JHB

“A special feast”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

A small, nondescript entrance in 4th Ave Parktown North belies a fantastic evening of superbly prepared dishes, each presented by one of the three chefs responsible for crafting the masterpieces. We were also placed in the second venue, but had the pleasure of Dario himself, owner of Cube attending to us. Both venues, are bare of any decor, with the emphasis clearly on the food.

The fixed menu was ten courses long, amazingly, no one at our table felt over full at the end but there was certainly no risk of needing to stop for a quick takeaway burger after the meal. The restaurant has no license so you can take your own alcoholic drinks. Do yourself a favour and discuss wine paring with the chefs when making your booking. Our party of ten had ten different wines to compliment the dishes perfectly.

You could go as a couple, but the food is best shared with a group of good friends. At R550 per person without drinks, Cube is in the upper price range of restaurants in Johannesburg, but the meal is worth it and I'd happily pay it again. This is definitely a taste experience too good to miss.
