“Simply brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

Frankly I'm amazed that no Joburgers I've met have heard of Cube. They ought to.

A 14 course tasting menu, as Joburgers love to say " to die for". Clever combinations, great variety, most sensuous tastes and calm and friendly service all combined to make this a truly memorable meal. Both our dietary requirements - my companion is a vegetarian and I do not eat pig - were efficiently catered for. And the icing on the cake is that the restaurant is not licensed, so you can bring your own alcohol without charge.

A wonderful wonderful experience. You must go!

“Two Out of Two”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

Another fantastic meal at Cube - Dario and team do not disappoint. The whole concept of a restaurant serving only a tasting menu works really well, allowing the chefs to showcase their skills (literally, as you watch them doing final cooking and plating up), plus being innovative and challenging our taste-buds. Highlights for us were the seafood and duck dishes, on the new July menu. Having said that, we were more than happy with the other courses too - in fact, the salmon dish (with the smoked salmon ice-cream) was my wife's favourite. Fortunately we had brought along a good selection of some good wines which complemented the dishes perfectly, where the BYOB policy really works.

“Never disappoints!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

As a patron, I am always impressed by the levels of creativity demonstrated by the Cube team. The multi-course menu provides an opportunity for the chefs to demonstrate their considerable skill, to the delight of guests. Fantastic dinner with a focus on spice, allowing the opportunity to BYO which in many respects outshines the typical wine offering in most commercial establishments. Dario is once again gaining cult following at this amazing venue.

“Cube continues to delight......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

Cube is an interesting dining experience, easily one of the best cultured places around the area. The restaurant is just big enough, simple décor and neat table arrangement. Service and hospitality is top notch (from the bookings, waiters, and chefs - very professional to deal with. It makes for a warm, friendly vibe and fun night out. Well, the main part is the food. The creativity on the periodical menu never ceases to amaze. Array of dishes for the May/June menu was great. Thought the paella and Liver & fava dishes were too good not to be mentioned. All the 10 courses kept delighting all night through, and very quick intervals. Chefs explaining each dish adds to the pleasant experience. Liked that vegetarians catered for as well.. There is no licence, bring own at no charge.For the cost, its real value for money…..highly recommended. Booking in advance essential.
