“A cut above the rest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

Had a birthday celebration last night and whilst I am a regular the overall quality of food, service and attention to detail was superb. My thanks to Alex who as usual made the night special - not to be missed for the "foodies" out there, but booking essential.

“Proper”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

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.

“LUCIANA AND FAMILY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

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............

“Awesome!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

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.
