You are only moments away

FFrom gourmet on 4th Avenue to genuine German fare in Randburg, as well as suggestions for where to eat on the cheap, if you want to impress, or are just looking for great service and value, why not go forth on a Jozi food adventure?

Eating out in Johannesburg means exploring the local restaurants and eateries, and finding all the delicious hidden delis, eateries, bistros and cafes. There are also plenty of great steakhouses, pizza parlours and fine dining restaurants – but if you really want to enjoy something different, try our range of African or South African eateries.

Did You Know?
TThe popular Sakhumzi Restaurant in Soweto is situated in the famous Vilakazi Street, opposite the Mandela House Museum.

EEating out in Johannesburg is not only a culinary event; it's a cultural experience too. For more than 100 years, people from all corners of the earth have flocked to Johannesburg to seek their fortunes in the City of Gold. This diversity of population is reflected in the eateries – whether your taste buds call for African, Asian, Italian, seafood, steaks, designer street food or anything in-between, you will be sure to find it on a Johannesburg plate.

SSimply wander along the restaurant strips of Parkhurst, Braamfontein, Maboneng, Cyrildene and Norwood, or the malls in Sandton, Hyde Park and Rosebank until you find something that takes your fancy. Of course, heading out to Soweto is an absolute must for township vibes and authentic African cuisine.

There are many notable dining experiences on offer: try the Avo Ritz at the Rand Club (built in 1886); enjoy tapas with a view of the city at Randlords in Braamfontein; sample the innovative cuisine on offer at DW eleven-13; Coobs’ modern design fits perfectly with the atmosphere of its hip 4th Avenue location; while, Cube Tasting Kitchen is not just a restaurant, it is a tasting kitchen offering an intimate and focused food experience.

If you're looking for a bit of jazz with your meal, try the Sophiatown Bar Lounge in Newtown; The Orbit in Braamfontein; Katzy's in Rosebank; or the Radium Beerhall for jazz and good Portuguese fare.
