“Cube continues to delight......”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Cube is an interesting dining experience, easily one of the best cultured places around the area. The restaurant is just big enough, simple décor and neat table arrangement. Service and hospitality is top notch (from the bookings, waiters, and chefs - very professional to deal with. It makes for a warm, friendly vibe and fun night out. Well, the main part is the food. The creativity on the periodical menu never ceases to amaze. Array of dishes for the May/June menu was great. Thought the paella and Liver & fava dishes were too good not to be mentioned. All the 10 courses kept delighting all night through, and very quick intervals. Chefs explaining each dish adds to the pleasant experience. Liked that vegetarians catered for as well.. There is no licence, bring own at no charge.For the cost, its real value for money…..highly recommended. Booking in advance essential.

“One of my Joburg favourites”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

This was my third visit and was part of a wine evening in which we took over the restaurant. Not only professional to deal with, but an exceptional 10 courses that just kept delighting. Some expats who attended on the night, couldn't believe experience vs. cost.

“Great meal! Great service! Great experience!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

From start to finish this place is a delight. Booking is simple through their online system. This is followed up with an email clearly explaining the process of the night. When you turn up (be on time) there is someone standing outside ready to direct you to which room you are to be seated in (they recently expanded). The process is explained to you clearly by the wait staff and the meat/seafood vs vegetarian is quickly worked out. If you've followed the wine/ food pairing suggestions the waiter already knows what order to serve them in. The Chefs explain each course to you as its being served. Each course comes at just the right pace for you to finish the matched wine. I can't say enough about this place! Simply it is a well oiled machine that serves up some very interesting dishes - not everything to my taste, but that would seem to be the point of a tasting kitchen!

If you want to do the full wine/food pairing, I'd suggest going as a group of 5 plus, they do cater for large groups - there was a table of about 10 ppl there the night we went. Unless you want to carry several half bottles of wine home with you (or be carried home yourself). It is 10 courses so don't expect to be out of there early.

Go and book now!

“The most fun, most memorable dining experience ever!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Only had 2 days in Johannesburg so we decided to go to the number one rated restaurant in the area. It is now my number one restaurant in the world so far. It was a fun, unique, well choreographed show. I felt like a judge in a cooking contest where the chefs came to each table to explain the 3-4 items on each of the 10 plates that came throughout the 3.5 hour dinner. Some people brought 5-6 different wines to pair with the food as suggested by the menu emailed in advance. They took their left over wine home. That would have been fun. No corkage fee. Place was plain, no sign outside. I guess they don't need one since they are booked every night.
