“Truly exceptional - would give a 6th star for this special place.”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Truly, this is one of the best meals I've ever had. The food was beyond fabulous - the chef Chantel comes out and explains the menu. The service is extremely good - special "bread server", etc. Presentation of food on plates was truly a work of art. I've never seen such detailed arrangement of edible flowers and game "footprints". Additionally, special courses/adjustments were made for my gluten free/dairy free diet - all elaborate and sumptuous. Add to this an unbelievably beautiful setting with unbelievable works of art (famous artists!) and you are guaranteed one magical experience. There is also a boutique hotel - we would love to return and stay here for a special celebration. Out of this world! One of the best memories of our incredible trip to South Africa.

“The best restaurant experience possible”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

What an exceptional fine dining experience. There are a few very good restaurants in Pretoria, but this restaurant is great. The cuisine crafted by Chantel is itself art, and the international wine pairings by top international sommelier Germain will take you on a taste journey which is thrilling. We found everything to be meticulously prepared, fresh and exquisitely tasty and matched by friendly and superb service. If they don't have a Michelin star, they should.

“Something special”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We shared a family lunch with our daughters and what an amazing culinary experience! The reception, service and food was 5 star. A special mention for the Chef because our taste buds were enticed through out the courses.

I thought no experience could surpass The Roots(Forum Homini) but Restaurant Mosaic has raised our bar.

Thank you for a special afternoon.
