Il Giardino Degli Ulivi

Reviewed By ryamarim

This restaurant has a lovely dining area that's almost picture perfect and creates a sense of peace and tranquility. Service is very relaxed - I finally asked the chef if they're open after waiting 15 minutes for any assistance.The menu is extensive with a focus on Italian dishes and salads/grilled dishes are expensive and fairly limited. I opted for the chicken salad - a small meal that was tasty but not of the standard that I would have expected from this type of restaurant.All in all an average experience

Casual Cafe dining.

Our visit to Velo Cafe left a very sour taste in my mouth. We were there for Saturday morning brunch and almost nothing worked out.When our drinks arrived (coffee and hot chocolate) they were lukewarm. How? How do you bring lukewarm drinks to customers?Then when the breakfast arrived the mushrooms were cold, the poached eggs tasted like vinegar and the meal was generally unappetising. As we were sitting outside there was a whif of urine in the air that was hard to ignore.When the bill arrived there was a tip already included. Now for a table of 6 this is understandable... but there were four of us. When we enquired about this we were told that the waiters don't get a basic salary and so for all bills of R200 or more a tip is automatically included in the bill. I couldn't believe it! Surely an hourly rate should be standard in line with Labour Laws and secondly this is something that should be communicated to patrons in advance.Not cool Velo Cafe, not cool.

Reviewed By Stefano P

I used to go to Foundry but they changed the food menu.It’s still a nice pub with great atmosphere, good choice of beers and drinks but unfortunately they changed the food menu. While before was a great place for a dinner (I still remember the lamb shank + ostrich fillet), it now serves more tapas e finger food dishes with a relatively small option of main courses.

The hotel is not in greatest part of town so taxis are recommended to get about. The hotel was a great price and very central near many of the tourist attractions. The owner is very helpful and was full of good advice. The room was in good to fair condition but reflects the price. The restaurant is great and thoroughly recommended.

Reviewed By adventuressCA

Fun ambiance and service superb. That doesn’t make up for fact fish was rubbery and not properly cooked. Seasoning was uneventful. Hoped for more peri peri taste although they had sauce in table. Not the same as grilled with sauce. Liver starter excellent. Also excellent security getting in and out from street. Sketchy neighborhood way off the grid. Take taxi not safe.

A stalwart of the Rosebank scene. I've visited here on many occasions while visiting Joburg. Good mixed menu of burger/salad/grill type options, in a buzzy setting at the heart of the mall. A classic brunch spot too and great for people watching. Service always friendly, but can be a little slow, especially when busy.

Creative menu that will satisfy any foodie, making use of seasonal/local ingredients, presented beautifully by a chef who obviously takes pride in his work. He made a point of visiting our table when we arrived. We stayed at the hotel and liked the food so much we ate at the restaurant every night rather than venturing out. We couldn't imagine finding better elsewhere!Dear gmw725, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. It's lovely reading how you enjoyed your time and Clico and we proud to hear how you enjoyed the meals and that you got to meet our Chef. Who is indeed a very creative chef.

As part of our stay at the Four Seasons, we took the opportunity to dine at the View. We were not disappointed. The 5-course tasting menu with local wine pairing was exquisite. Each course was masterfully assembled and the combination of ingredients and textures was amazing. The service was very attentive and so friendly - we felt very well taken care of. We will no doubt visit here again and recommend this restaurant highly. Oh and the view was stunning.Dear georginah2,Thank you for taking the time to send us a review and I am so please to read that you had a fantastic time with us.We look forward to welcoming you back.Kind RegardsNataliePublic Relations Manager
