There is not much left to say about one of THE BEST restaurants in South Africa. From just arriving at this beautiful place you already know that your visit will be something special. An arrival glass of wine or MCC gives you time to marvel over the menu and to build up your excitement for what lies ahead. The whole... More

Oh, where do I start......We booked our reservation months before we visited South Africa. Just before leaving, i discovered that I had screwed up the dates and they graciously adjusted without fuss. The restaurant is outside the city on a private reserve. The drive can be a bit hairy to get there but it was worth it. We were treated... More

Be ready to be transported into a world far away from here. Restaurant Mosaic at The Orient Boutique Hotel should be on everyone's bucket list. If you are looking for elegance and class this will be your place to visit. The food never disappoint and it's probably the only place in Gauteng that have consistency in service, food and experience.... More

What a surprise, this amazing restaurant tucked away in a secluded setting. Like walking into an Aladdin's cave with its Moroccan theme. We had the nine course taster menu with wine pairing. Every course was a surprise, beautiful presentation and flavours with a surprise each time. Absolutely exceptional. Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable without being stuffy.

Set in the countryside; a beautiful restaurant with a very good menu which incorporates seasonal ingredients. Service of an exceptional level.Beautifully presented food. Good cuisine. Generous local wine pairing ( perhaps one should refrain from drinking it all, but who could resist?!) > Definitely worth regular visits.

This is without a doubt the best meal we have ever had. We had the full 9 courses with wine pairing. From the beautiful, fresh bread selection, to the frog legs (!!!), quail, eggs in a nest, langoustine and desserts, it was an absolutely magical experience!!

estaurant Mosaic at the Orient hotel, located near Pretoria in South Africa, is anything but ordinary. From the moment you arrive on their premises you are transported to a place where it feels like, fairy tales come alive. In the architecture of the hotel there is a clear combination of Oriental, Middle Eastern and Art Nouveau influences visible throughout the... More

Lunch with business friends and family in a private room. Everything just perfect. The food excellence, the presentation perfect and the wine divine. Need to make it a regular experience. Need to figure out transport there and back from home
