Staying just down the road from this "shopping centre" in Sandton/Johannesburg for business over the past two weeks, I ended up driving by this place at least twice a day. Most North Americans wouldn't expect to find a 5 star fine dining restaurant with live music in a shopping centre...but don't look past this place when in Sandton. I have eaten at a few other high end places in Sandton and this one is by far the best for atmosphere, food and of course value given the Dollar and Sterling against the Rand.
The service was very attentive, but like most places in Africa you simply have to lower your expectations just a bit. Overall though the service was the best so far here - compared to Butcher Shop and Picolo Mondo. The food is the highlight here. They have an overwhelmingly extensive menu, all of which sound succulent. My dinner companions had filet of beef, the pork belly and the prawn and saffron risotto amongst them. All of which were good choices. I had the calamari, which was copious. The highlight of everyone's meal was the "sumo fries" which were the potatoes served with the mains. Notable starters included the pumpkin soup and the chicken livers. We passed on dessert, but the menu looked good.
Everyone should try to make it here. The decor and live music added to the ambiance.
