The food was really lovely and the service was excellent. The lamb main is outstanding and so was the sirloin. The reason I didn't give it 5 was because the wine pairing fell flat. The rose wine paired with one of the courses literally tasted like sand and the red wine served with the mains was ok but nothing I... More

The food was not very tasty. The best part about the experience was being able to see into the kitchen but I would not recommend.

Amazing place. You wouldn´t know it´s there. Very discreet on the outside. Once you get inside the place is beautiful, the service incredible and the food just amazing and truly delicious. Not sure why it doesn´t have Michelin stars! A must do if you are in Joburg!

This was our second visit and it was as perfect as the first one. The degustation menu was very tasty and well balanced. The wine pairing was perfect and always accompanied by an interesting explanation by Mario. Will be back.

Last night (31 March 2017) my husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with our son and daughter. WOW ! There were plenty of other marriages (of flavours) going on in our mouths during the most awesome meal in years! Being the daughter of a cordon bleu chef mother who was a member of the renowned Chaîne des Rôtisseurs... More

I visited the restaurant last night and had my doubts about the food. Often fine dining can leave you wanting. Many have mentioned the location, not the best, but the interior of the restaurant is smart, and looks good. I enjoyed all the courses on the Dégustation menu. Each dish was superbly presented, and the mixture of flavours and textures... More

Went to DW 11-13 to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. The decor is stunning and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The food is impeccable! Each dish was beautifully presented and full of flavour. We had the degustation menu with non alcoholic drinks pairing. I could not fault any course. All the dishes and drinks were unique. Truly enjoyable experience, lovely waiters... More

In 2015 I came 3 times. I returned today with a friend and it was as good as ever. The chef's menu is Superb and is on par (if not more creative) than Michelin star restaurants in Europe that I have been to. It is pricey but you get an experience - not only a meal. Look out for the... More

This restaurant just keeps on delivering. It's certainly amongst the best in Jozi for food. It's a good experience from the moment you arrive, with all staff very well trained.Had the 4 course menu. The confit chicken was fabulous, the Bonsmara sirloin succulent and tasty, while the Basil Sago is original and a piece of art. Loved almost everything (one... More
