“Awesome dining experience”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great food, excellent service and pleasant atmosphere. The pasta is highly recommended, especially the daily handmade dishes. Early booking is a must! We have never been disappointed by the quality of food.

We had lunch at Cafe Del Sol, the food was amazing, the staff is very nice. We like the atmosphere and the service. The seafood risotto is just yumi!
They will see us again, thanks Cafe Del Sol!

“Yum yum!!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

No complaints - this place is excellent. Service is attentive but not intrusive, the food is exquisitely prepared and beautifully presented. Decor is modern yet the setting is homely - a very clever balance. The lamb cutlets on risotto was to die for. Risotto is usually a pretty good gauge of a chef’s capability – this chef is very, very good. Fairly priced for what you get - not quite the cheapest, but there are many vastly more expensive places that don't come even close. Highly recommended. Try it - you won't be disappointed.

“Great service, great food”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

We went here for a special occasion, the restaurant is a bit noisy but that would be my only complaint. The food was fantastic, really good quality, fresh ingredients. I am a big fan of pasta, and this was the first JHB restaurant which I've been to that actually serves you freshly made pasta - Yum!! Good wine list. And the service was great. The waiter was able to recommend some great dishes and even allowed us to swop out our dessert when we thought his recommendation wasn't as good as the others chosen dessert. I'll be going there again!
