This place only seats about 25-30 and is very popular, so advance booking is essential. Not licenced, so bring your own drinks.
We had only had South African dining experiences like this in Cape Town, so were completely bowled over by the imagination of the chefs. Faultless, everything was perfect, from Salmon ice cream to Springbok. There are 10 tasting courses, created by artists, and changed on a regular basis.
We arrived at 7pm as guests, and left at 10.30pm as friends. Everyone applauded as the last dish was served.
Well done, Joburg, finally on the culinary map, and in the top 10 of best meals outside Europe.

My second visit to Cube, and again I was not disappointed by the food that was served. I love that the menu changes based on the seasonal offerings. Dinner was an affair with food and the wine that we paired with it. Each mouthful an experience! Well done on an amazing production - I have no other words for it. I definitely would suggest a table in the new venue, the air flow makes a big difference.

Cube is less of a restaurant and more of an experimental, experiential, taste sensation. Hyperbole? No, hardly. Cube is a phenomenal dining experience that combines flair, science, taste and presentation into an experience that has to be seen to believed.

In a tiny, intimate dining space, you're exposed to anything upwards of 10 superb, interesting, exciting courses ranging from liquid nitrogen poached starters to triple cooked duck. Each course is artfully presented and explained by one of the chefs, and brims with taste, colour, flavour and vitality.

It's an eating experience that has to be tried for anyone who is passionate about food.

The 10 course meal on Valentine's Day was outstanding! I also sent my boss for a dinner there the day before and said "The best fun I've had in a very long time" The hospitality is amazing too! Keep it up Del!
