This lovely little restaurant offers a variety of delicious and well-presented menu items. The service is excellent, and the staff go out of their way to make your evening very special for anniversaries and birthdays. The restaurant seems unassuming from outside, but exceeds expectations inside....More

By far the best Italian restaurant in Johannesburg and superior to the Bryanston and Parkhurst versions.

It's no wonder Café del Sol wins awards year after year. The food, presentation, service and attention to detail are what lies behind their continued success. The prices are not cheap, but match the quality. Last night my wife had fried calamari which was delicious,...More
