We had booked this place months ago as our first dinner on our South African trip. After a long 12 hour flight from Frankfurt, a couple of hours clearing customs and a drive from the airport, it was a real pleasure to have found a place that met our expectations.

Food amazing but oh so pricey. Portions are a bit too small, most men I know would want more. But other than that first class.

The Café del Sol in Olivedale is still our favourite restaurant in Johannesburg for a gastro treat. Each dish was superb in presentation and taste. The service was impeccable. A little noisy but with that standard of food, I was not complaining.

One of the best restaurants I have eaten at over many years. Staff is always friendly, helpful and very professional. The food is always of the same standard and the portions are more than enough. Have to book well in advance though.
