We had planned to go to Les Delices a couple of times before and finally made it there for a birthday celebration. The venue is modest, has a bistro feel to it. But there was nothing modest about the rest of the experience. The service was some of the best I've experienced in Johannesburg and the food was exceptional.

We ordered starters (seafood bisque and fresh porcini), mains (hanger steak and chateaubriand) and dessert (lemon souffle and tarte tatin); among the 6 dishes there was not a single disappointment, including the side dishes. Absolutely fantastic. It's been less than a month and I'm already trying to find an excuse to go back.

The only minor downside is that they do not allow BYO wine at all, but the wine list is exceptional and not badly priced so it wasn't much of a downside at all.

Went to this restaurant on Friday 8th December. NEVER thought there would be a restaurant, let alone and excellent one in that area of busy streets, lorries and cars dashing by! Food and service was very good. We sat at entrance pat which is an enclosed "stoep" and was a little disappointed at the decor. The windows next to us (which is painted as it is not used and was part of the main house before stoep was enclosed) did not look very clean and definitely needs a lick of paint. I am quite fussy as we are picky when and where we eat out as it has become so expensive. And I noticed table legs and chairs all over needs a bit of sprucing u too. A lick of paint can do wonders - owners please note! Otherwise a very good experience!

I have fallen inlove with French cuisine now!
The food was amazing... from the starters we had the duck liver pate, the main I had rabbit and the dessert I had nougat ice cream! It was all soo scrumptious that I can’t wait to taste more other dishes.
The service was great and The waiters hosted well, very friendly and warm!
We had an amazing day spent there and look forward to our next visit!
