Pigalle Sandton

Located in the Michelangelo Towers at the Nelson Mandela Square, Pigalle Sandton has become a benchmark in urban-chic dining where government and business men and women swarm to wine and dine like kings and queens. The venue reflects the Goncalves brother's Mediterranean flair for life with its sumptuous vibe, specializing in exceptional seafood and superb international cuisine. There is something extraordinary for every palate at Pigalle with a sensational menu including impeccably prepared meat, fish and poultry dishes. Pigalle Sandton showcases elegant decor which sets a chic, up market ambience as well as successfully exhibiting and almost decadent yet exceptionally impressive urban-Baroque flavour. Lavish imported Italian fabrics, rich timber and gilded frames complete the opulent look and feel, while the smoking section boasts a breezy balcony with panoramic vistas of the Sandton CBD skyline.

Thank Goodness! The hotel our tour group stayed at here was nothing to write home about, but...at least we splurged on dinner our last night in Johannesburg! Dinner was wonderful, dessert was delightful, everyone was very well pleased with everything that night. I loved the traditional decor, very elegant and pleasing to the eye. The staff were gracious and we were a large group to handle all at once, yet they handled it quite well. If you are looking for a very nice fine dining experience, do go and maybe celebrate a special occasion!

Perfect ambient, perfect service, perfect food!
Located in Bryanston, this restaurant shows the old colonial ambient. And it's huge. Outside you have a fireplace.
The service is extra ordinary. Three different waiters were responsible for our table. And each waiter was a specialist in his profession and high motivated.
We tried the Kudu-fillet, the ordinary beef and several types of carpaccio. Absolute perfect!
Good wine and a good whisky were offered too.
We will come back, definitely.

The Butcher Shop & Grill

In the heart of Sandton, on Nelson Mandela Square, is the flagship Johannesburg branch of The Butcher Shop & Grill: an institution in South African dining. For over 20 years, our unmatchable steakhouse has been as much a part of SA culture as Sunshine, red wine and red meat. You could say it is a landmark on the culinary landscape (and we're now in Cape Town and the Middle East). But The Butcher Shop is also about family - and the laughter, memories and conversations shared with special people over great food at a top steakhouse. Our family business, handed down over three generations, is famed for its quality produce, extensive menu, separate butchery & deli and 800 passionate staff globally. In Johannesburg we're able to seat up to 600 guests, plus 22 guests in our exclusive private dining room. In Cape Town, we can accommodate 250 guests, with capacity for an additional 40 guests in our private dining room.

Love this restaurant. A carnivores delight. The ribs are especially good as are the steaks naturally. Service is very good and the atmosphere good with a mix of business men and families. Never had a bad meal here and well worth the additional cost of the meal prices. If you like meat, you will not be disappointed.

Trumps Grillhouse and Butchery

Established in 1994, we have become a favorite amongst the locals and business people in and around the Sandton area. We've hosted many local and international guests— you may even spot local and international celebrities too. Trumps is popular with many tour operators and airlines; we are frequented by customers from British Airways, Qatar, Virgin, Lufthansa, and others. We are the number one seller of Karan Beef in Johannesburg and all our beef is aged on the premises in a cold room, for 21 days. What can our patrons expect? Affordability, consistency, excellent service and outstanding meals. We pride ourselves on being able to create the highest quality meals, all at affordable prices. We have an extensive menu that has taken years to develop. Our food can be described as top notch. At Trumps, "It's all about the meat." A variety of steaks, including Fillet, Rump, Sirloin, and Prime Rib are a must for meat lovers. Our famous BBQ ribs are another favorite amongst our customers. Otherwise we have a variety of seafood and chicken dishes to suit every customer's liking. With all the experience over the years and a great and competent team back and front of house, we have the ability to produce consistently excellent results, no matter how busy we may be. We have an extensive wine menu, to cater for all tastes. Our passion to bring new and exciting meals and wine to the world has driven us to source our wines from around the world. Our newly built cellar offers a host of local and international wines, impressive for even the most sophisticated palate. With a new in-house butchery opening at the end of October, many of our patrons will soon be able to take a piece of Trumps home with them. We have two Private rooms available for both corporate and personal functions. The Johnnie Walker Private Room, and our Glenfiddich Private Room. Whether it's a company meeting, year end, or even just a special occasion that needs to be celebrated, dine in comfort and style. Each room is customized to offer an experience worth remembering!

This place has it all. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, local game, great beef, nice wine, and wonderful desserts. It’s so popular that a quiet conversation may not be possible, but you’re not yelling at each other. By the way, it’s not connected to the current US president. Recommend.

Fishmonger Illovo

Reviewed By mark h

If you love good food you have arrived at the perfect place. Passion, consistency and value is what you will experience. Pedro runs the ultimate restaurant- service is impeccable, quality is outstanding, only the freshest seafood is plated. The best seafood with touch of Portuguese dishes are served. New addition is the great international wine list which is really well priced and have great varieties from all over the world. For beer lovers Peroni draught is fresh and cold.
Our favorite is the Fresh fish (Seabass flame grilled) and King prawns for main after the magnificent calamari starter. I have been going there for years and have never been disappointed.
World class restaurant with amazing ambience.
Well done Jonathan, Dennis, Chris Derrick! You guys go far beyond duties of a manager!

This is a very authentic Portuguese restaurant. The owner is omnipresent and makes a genuine attempt to ensure that the menu is explained to you. There are some very traditional Portuguese dishes such as goat, Bacalhau and various pork dishes. The best selection of Portuguese wines in South Africa. Recommended.
