We loved every minute of our evening here from the moment we arrived until the moment we left.
The food was so different what a change to try something you have never had before. Every dish was beautifully prepared with many different elements each one you could taste. The combination of flavours worked perfectly and every mouthful was a delight. So fresh and yet so tasty. Fabulous clever cooking probably my favourite meal for a long time.

Last time we were in town, we only managed lunch. This time we reserved, and dinner was excellent. The food is interesting and tasty, but what got me was the smoked cheesecake.

I do a bit of smoking myself, and this blew me away. I asked the server how they did it, and was told "it's smoked." I'd worked that out myself, but now I'm itching to know if it's actually cooked in the smoker, cold smoked with a smoke gun, or cooked then smoked... will have to come back and try again.

A lovely restaurant in two rooms, one of which overlooks the open-plan kitchen. The food is a combination of many unusual ingredients resulting in an explosion of flavours. The ingredients are also of different textures making the experience even more interesting.

Great dinner, not only for the food that was outstanding but for the treatment of the people, knowledgeable, nice and attentive.
We will include Foliage as one of the best restaurants in RSA.
THANK YOU GUYS!!!

We enjoyed a very nice meal here particularly the first and main courses but were disappointed that my peanut butter desert course was frozen on top but the waiter tried to convince me that it had to be like that to serve I would not have minded if he had been honest but the dish was inedible due to the top of it being frozen and a spoon wouldn’t penetrate it!otherwise are great meal
