Best steak I have had in many a year. Open kitchen is a great idea and chefs are truly there to ensure you have a great experience. Service staff are second to none. The whole concept is refreshing and pleasant to experience. Congratulations to Chef Jade and his team.

Being my maiden trip to Johannesburg, was worried on veg food. This has been my best experience as every chef and steward paying good attention to the guests. Chef on eggs section is worth special mention - multi handling the tasks of variants - omlette, sunny side, masala choice and vow. The spread of salads, fruits and nuts are too... More

We still rate as the best in the Montecasino complex. The staff are always friendly and attentive, nothing is too much, especially on a quite Friday evening when you want a romantic dinner for two. The menu had changed from our last visit, but still has a has a wide selection Mediterranean and local foods. I had the Springbok and... More

Beware, Punchinello's WILL have your kryptonite! I really wish I had a second, third and fourth stomach because I could not indulge the entire variety of the amazing spread of the buffet breakfast. As presented best by the wise words of Arnold, "I'll be back!"

I love this restaurant. They never fail to disappoint. It is a nice ambience; outstanding food prepared and presented with panache; and the service is absolutely world-class. My waiter, Shaddrack, REMEMBERED that he had been my waiter last year when I visited. For dinner I had the slow cooked lamb shank and it was honestly the best I have ever... More

We had the Springbok and Sole Thermidor - and a couple of good glasses of wine. The food is beautifully presented, tasty and good value for money. Will definitely stop by again when we return to the hotel.

A bit better than you usual hotel restaurant, and the fact that many locals who aren't hotel guests come here is testament to that. Food menu offers good choice, high quality and great service (which goes for the bar as well as the restaurant). One negative here is the space - when it is busy, there are not enough tables...
