We stayed at the Fairlawns for 3 nights so had the opportunity to dine at the Terrace for many of our meals, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. (There are not other restaurants in walking distance, but we had no reason to seek alternatives.) The breakfast buffet options were varied, fresh, and delicious. Dinner courses were all creative in the preparation,... More

We stayed at the hotel at the beginning of our trip to South Africa and ended up eating here in the hotel restaurant each night; it was so good we didn't want to miss a dinner. Salads were fresh, crisp, creative and terrific; I had an asparagus creation followed by absolutely wonderful fresh kingclip (fish) and my husband had lamb... More

This is my second visit to this restaurant, both for birthday celebrations. On both occasions the food has been very poor and I had to return it to the kitchen. On my most recent visit, my food was served cold. I sent it back and a few minutes later the same food was returned to me cold again. I sent... More

A very beautiful restaurant is nestled within Fairlawns Boutique Hotel just off Bowling Ave in Gallo Manor - Sandton called Amuse Bouche. Fine Dining at it's best. I would recommend the duck, very tasty with no fat, however the taste is really good. Also recommend the Chocolate Fondant for desert. Romantic place for a night out.

This was a lovely surprise. The hotel is beautifully laid out and the settings serene. The food is beyond delicious- we could not rave about this menu enough. We wished we had more time to be able to try breakfast and dinner here.

Breakfast buffet and menu items were all prepared, served and presented in a five star manner. Meals can be eaten on the outdoor terrace. Extensive wine selection with very reasonable bottle prices.

Coming from of a major "foodie" area of our country, I was delighted to taste the food in this restaurant. The best gazpacho I've ever had the pleasure of eating. I wished my bowl was bottomless! Salad greens were fresh and crisp, dressings well balanced. Recently we decided to add fish back into our diet after being strictly vegan for... More

We ate here once before for Valentines Day and it was very nice. However we were a bit disappointed this time as we felt the meal wasn't as nice. The food was above average but everything seemed very rushed. We arrived at 6.30pm and had finished eating by 7.30pm. Not really the special occasion I remembered from a few years... More
