I booked a table at Pigalle as part of my beautiful wife's birthday celebrations and it was a very good decision! The service was friendly and professional. We ordered the Chateaubriand (for 2) and it was absolute delicious! Pigalle, located in the Michelangelo Towers, is a beautiful restaurant with a very relaxing atmosphere. The background music was stunning and just... More

Upmarket, well situated restaurant offering a great menu of various culinary delights although seafood is the speciality. Excellent wines on offer to compliment the food. Staff friendly and efficient.

Our grilled kingklip and Portuguese chicken were superb as were the pear/ almond salad, red rice, braised duck spring rolls and hot fudge ice cream sundae. Delicate flavors. Scrumptious food, excellent table service and restaurant ambience.

Pigalle overlooks a square and you can either sit inside or sit outside on the balcony . The service is discrete and fast with attention paid to detail . I have eaten here a number of times and...

It's always a pleasant treat here but maybe that's because of the company at the table more than anything else. Pigalle offers a traditional menu, no avant-garde/gourmet food but we all enjoyed the food. A majority of the table rushed towards the prawns and they were delighted, the peri-peri sauce was the clincher. Chicken, beef and fish dishes were fair.... More

We went to Pigalle in Sandton for the first time on Wednesday evening with cousins from New York. It is a more fine dining option than other fish restaurants in Johannesburg. The welcome and the service was excellent. I shared a greek salad with my cousin and then had teriyaki salmon. I asked one of the managers / owners ?... More

Decided to visit Pigalle on our third anniversary. The service and attention to detail was superb. The food was out of this world and really brilliant. We had the duck spring rolls and beef trichado as starters which was brilliantly made. Our mains was the seafood platter for 2, which was the highlight - fresh and brilliant. Definitely a place...

Took my wife for her birthday. We both liked the idea of seafood so Pigalle seemed to be a good choice. Overall a pleasant experience but sadly this place needs to drag its menu and presentation into the modern dining era. The venue is comfortable. The dining room is fairly well laid out - the restaurant is in the back... More
