There are so many dubious Italian restaurants around that one tends to be a little mistrusting but not in the case of Cafe Del Sol - this place is authentic. We were a party of 5 and had a fantastic lunch there. Service was sharp and professional and the food VERY tasty and well plated. Portions excellent and the prices for both food and wine is reasonable.
this is a "proper" restaurant. Will visit again on our next trip. Highly recommended.

THIS IS NOT "ONE" OF THE BEST MEALS I HAVE EVER HAD IN A RESTAURANT - IT IS 'THE BEST'. This is without doubt an eating experience which is second to none - there are NO other restaurants that I have visited in Johannesburg that come even close - well done - don't ever allow it to change. I actually did NOT want to write a review because I wanted to keep this secret to myself............

The menu (though rather large and pricy) is filled with interesting meals. The pastas are delicious and the deserts are incredible!
A truly enjoyable treat. I will definitely be returning.

Relaxed modern setting with a great vibe. Perfect for special occasions with family and friends or a romantic dinner for two.

Bookings in advance are essential in order to avoid disappointment.

A varied menu with a great selection of food and wine, including wine by the glass.
Dish recommendations; Porcini Mushroom Risotto, Seafood Risotto, The Bacon & Brie Matured Beef Fillet, Calamari Limoncello, Carbonara or Gnocchi with Gorgonzola Sauce, followed by dessert; Seasonal Sorbet, Pavlova or Cheesecake. Excellent!

"Café Del Sol Olivedale specializes in crisp, fresh luncheons and ambient, gourmet dinners."
