It is a pleasure to be able to experience sofistication and that also includes from food, service, and everything about this restaurant is just perfect, but as everything good a price tag is attached. But it is worth every penny.

We were in a group of about 20 of us and normally with a large group you will get somebody who has a bad meal, well not with this restaurant , the food was amazing and the staff were really good. I would highly recommend it and I would definitely go back.

Our group of four are staying at The Michelangelo Hotel and just finished enjoying a great meal and outstanding service. Everything we ordered was delicious Two of us had the ostrich and we both loved it. We all had the apple fennel salad and we all ordered the spectacular creme brûlée dessert. We loved the fun and dramatic presentation but more importantly it tasted so good......great way to end a lovely evening I highly recommend.this restaurant for a great dining experience

Dear Linda Diane5

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your very positive comments on Trip Advisor.

Our main goal here is to delight all of our guests with great food and even better service so I am thrilled to hear that you experienced both, our creme brulee is probably the best in Africa and it usually creates what we like to call a "magic moment" for your dining experience.

We look forward to welcoming you back at some point, until then happy travels, and thanks again for your feedback it is very encouraging to my team and I.

Kind regards

If you are looking to relax this is probably one of the better places in Sandton to do so. You cannot go wrong with the drinks menu or selection of teas. When ordering a meal such as a simple sandwich it is usually quite good and not so expensive. However, the quality of meals and certain deserts are inconsistent. Do give their crème brûlée a chance as it is very well presented and pretty good.

I dined here for breakfast and for a catered lunch meeting. The food was solidly average but the service was really pleasant and attentive.
