This little restaurant is the perfect place in Joburg you consider yourself a "francophile!" We have eaten here quite a few times over the years and have never been disappointed. Its a true french bistro in every sense - chalkboard menus for the wine list (incl superb french wines) and daily specials, in a small setting reminiscent of Art Deco... More

Anyone who's lived or worked in Paris will know that a bistro's decor can be quite tacky. This is not like that at all, it's got classy classic French decor in an intimate setting with prompt and well-trained service. Atmosphere is great for a date night. The wine menu is good, with a short list of French wines included. The... More

Went their for valentines and the place was crowded for a small restaurant like that, the person sitting next to you could've literally eaten out of my plate that's how close the next table were to ours, also didn't like to walk through the kitchen to go to the ladies so it wasn't as nice as we expected for valentines...

One of the many on the Parkhurst strip, this small eatery offers something a cut above the rest - Classy, elegant, and with probably the best wine list (local and imported) - With a carefully crafted small menu catering to all tastes, and daily specials. From the table appointments to the tasty and interesting food and excellent service, you will... More

What a cozy evening! Fresh oysters, foie gras, perfectly cooked sirloin steak and fries with a creamy pepper sauce! Our dinner at Bistro Vine was wonderful, I really liked the warm and laid back atmosphere of the restaurant and that it was a small venue that felt authentic and not over decorated, the opposite of an impersonal concept restaurant. Next... More

Love this restaurant for excellent food and attentive service. Chef Daniel is a great host and his team switched on. Great spot for lunches on the sidewalk - and people watching on 4th Avenue. Also great for dinner. Best to book to ensure getting a table outside. Time for a bit of an interrior update though - everything is exactly... More

We've been to Bistro Vino twice and both times they were able to accommodate us despite being completely full within minutes of our arrival. Both times we were so impressed with the service, the food was outstanding and the price was more than fair for the experience. It's got a lovely ambiance, not too noisy and very friendly staff. We've... More

Early Dinner with Wife and young daughter. Although no kiddie menu, hosts more than happy to accommodate all requests we had. Chilled dinner and delicious food. Fantastic evening - the attitude of hosts made it especially enjoyable. Thanks for a great experience!

My wife and I visited Bistro Vine for the first time to celebrate her birthday. The booking experience and servicing staff were absolutely brilliant. (Always a good start) The menu and specials provided a decent selection of dishes to choose from. Whist the portions of both the starter and mains were generous, the food was a bit disappointing on the... More
