“The garden pleasure”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

Sitting in the garden at Gia's, having coffee! various forms of croissant! hearing the birds! smelling the adjoining garden is a pleasure of transport into a sanctuary in the midst of the bustle of Johannesburg. An enchanting place on all counts.

“Early breakfast at gia's”
Reviewed 28 December 2012

After a long break of not been at Gia's we went through on 28 Dec. Service was great and food equally. Nothing was too much effect as we have 2 small kids. This all at 08h00 in the morning after a run through the nursery to get plants. Issac was our waiter if I recall correctly. Will be back.

“Relaxing and fulfilling”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

If you just want to venture out and enjoy some sun and relax with a good lunch then this tea garden is a good choice. The vegetarian selection is very good and the food is consistent. Don't forget the bran muffins or cafe, even for a function.

“An outstanding afternoon!”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Fantastic food, fantastic service, fantastic live entertainment, fantastic setting! An all in one package for the old and young alike. All the waitors were super friendly and helpful, whether they were assigned to your table or not giving the restaurant a lovely warm, homely feel. Thanks tripadvisor for the recommendation to visit, thanks to the staff at Gia's for an excellent afternoon! We will definitely be back!
