The toughest fillet steak ever, tasteless sea bass, overcooked 'seared' tuna and the incorrect dessert delivered to our table were not helped by the manager's cavalier attitude. Pity because there is good ambience, a fabulous view and friendly service from our waitron. Nevertheless, I will not be returning.

Great view, great service. Deep fried calamari and prawns to start, simply delicious. The main course menu had a full page for Italian food and then another page for everything else. So I’m not sure if it’s an Italian restaurant or not, so for main i had spaghetti bolognaise, always a sure fire way of judging whether an Italian restaurant is good or not. I wasn’t disappointed, a very very tasty dish. We will be back for sure!

BiCE is truly in a class of its own. gorgeous ambiance. delightful and ever willing diligent waitrons - always service with a smile ( effective and efficient) . management crew very hands on . awesome chef - as he prepared a green tea infused icecream garnished with crush red beans - we just wanted to experiment on taste but was superbly impressed - definite wow!the sommelier - was excellent .the food from starters to dessert was delicious - the food is priced on the higher end of the scale and it depends what is ordered - the portions are a good size . seems booking/reservations are essential - we stayed at the hotel and was advised to book each day and we glad that we did. lovely fine dining to enjoy on special occasions. Staff who are exceptional: Diego( the manager), and the waitrons( Mandy, Sinethemba and Mthandazo)

Very disappointed with this meal experience. The food is really not good and all very expensive. I was embarrassed with the way the manager handled the situation and so we left and will not return.

with one exception, our party of four declared their mains and desert to be both well presented and delicious. our choices spread from the daily specials at this italian-oriented restaurant within the southern sun hotel at hyde park to fish and a particularly impressive tagliolini mare. views across the city from the picture windows were great - even better we were told when there is a good sunset (100% cloud cover meant we could not check that out). service was confident, there when required but not obtrusive. the desserts of hot chocolate soufle (very chocolaty) and house special apple pie were well worth the 15 minute wait while they were prepared from fresh. but the recommended deep fried ice cream - the most expensive - was a boring disappointment.
