Enjoyed excellent service and seared tuna salads in a stylish environment. The outdoor deck seating was perfect on a sunny autumn day. Great choice for Sandton business lunch.

We are currently staying at the Maslow for a few days, we have had breakfast at the Lacuna each morning and the variety, quality of food and the friendly efficient service has been very good.

We had some friends join us for drinks on Sunday afternoon and we enjoyed the live music and excellent finger food selection, we shared a variety including mini lamb pies, beef burgers, chicken drumettes and mini pork ribs - it was all very tasty. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine selection.

Dinner is also very good, at our waiters suggestion we shared some appetizers, prawn, calamari and pork belly - all delicious. The pasta and the steak main courses were excellent. The kitchen is open and you can see the care and attention the chefs use in the preparation and presentation of the food.

A special mention to our dinner waiter Ronny who is efficient, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and wine selection, and he knows how to pour a nice glass of wine.

Overall we found the atmosphere, staff and food to be of a very high standard and prices reasonable and would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

I recently surprised my boyfriend with a birthday lunch at Lacuna. They have a decent variety for their buffet menu. Guests even receive a yummy glass of champagne as a welcome drink.The excellent level of customer service which guests receive from the staff is a perfect 10. My special requests were happily accommodated and they go the extra mile in ensuring your experience there is delightful. There was a guest violinist playing soft jams in the lounge for guests (which added to the relaxed atmosphere). Everyone at The Malsow hotel and Lacuna greet you with a warm smile, from the security guards at the entrance to the cheerful waiters. My boyfriend truly enjoyed spending his birthday at the Maslow hotel's Lacuna Bistro. Thanks for making our day so special.

I hosted a Birthday Dinner Party for my Boss at Lacuna Bistro. The service was fantastic, food amazing and a great wine selection. The dinner was a huge success the guests had great fun.
There is one particular waiter who stood out for us, a gentleman by the name of Gift. He really made everyone feel special and he gave us the best service working hand in hand with his team.
Thank you for a great evening, keep up the good work, you live up to the good ratings about the South African Hospitality and service industry, nothing less than 6 star. Well done.
