We choose the restaurant because of it's name after Amy Winehouse. It's a small intimate but elegant restaurant with friendly staff.

In our modern 21st century world, where fast food is ubiquitous, is is incredibly satisfying to find a restaurant which has managed to combine the elegance of fine dining with modern ideas about food combinations. We had a special occasion to celebrate and decided to go to the Winehouse, at 10 Bompas Rd in Dunkeld, Johannesburg. This restaurant has always received high praise from diners, so it was an experience to look forward to. Well from the time we arrived to the time we departed, the experience was exceptional. It is such a pleasure being served by a professional waiter, his name was Jackson. The ambience of the restaurant is calm and relaxing, and the background music unobtrusive, conversation is very easy in this space. If you are a love the noisy, buzzy place type of diner this establishment is not for you. Jackson brought the menu’s and obtained out drinks order, and left us to take in the menu. I have always believed that a sign of a great restaurant is usually an uncomplicated menu, with well considered dishes, and in this instance that is what we were presented with, nothing over complex and a limited range of offerings. I elected to have the Mussel Broth and my partner decided on the Butternut soup. Immediately we placed our orders, bread (Home cooked ciabatta) was served with Hummus, Olives and whipped butter. A wonderful way to start one’s meal. The hummus was very tasty and the bread was wonderful. When our first dishes arrived (At the same time – take note), one was presented with a wonderful choice of crockery, and the soup was added at the table. (Butternut soup | pumpkin seeds | cumin crème | lemon thyme (V/VG)) The sight of an intense orange liquid in the middle of a generous white dish was a beautiful thing to observe. It showed a touch of fine dining elegance. The Mussel broth was also spectacular, and served with a finger bowl and a side plate to hold the mussel shells. The taste of this dish was exceptional. (Smoked mussels | mussel broth | nori) As we finished our first course, Jackson enquired as to whether we would like our mains served immediately or would we like to wait a little. WE said that as soon as the dishes were ready, we would be happy to dine. Very shortly thereafter our mains arrived, and as before, both arrived at the table simultaneously. The Line fish | grilled red snapper | barley | parmesan was beautifully and elegantly presented and was reported to be superb, the Slow roasted pork | flatbread | rocket, was presented with a container of rough cut chips on the side. It was also very tasty. The meal was accompanied by a salad which was really tasty. What made this dining experience exceptional was a number of factors. Firstly the professional front of house staff, who demonstrated that they were not only very competent, but also warm and friendly. The Executive Chef | Ashley Murison – Johnson came out to chat with us as we were eating our mains and was enquiring about our experiences. He was friendly and unpretentious and spent some time discussing his ideas on modern food with us. All in all, a wonderful dining experience in a relaxing venue with fine fare and the most interesting part was the final bill. It was not over the top, it was exceptional value for money. So what can I say? If you wish to go out and have a fabulous meal in a space where you can converse with your fellow diners in comfort, with a very high level of professional service, then the Winehouse at 10 Bompas should be at the top of your list. If you have any visitor who you wish to impress then I feel with this venue you cannot go wrong.

Let me start off by saying that the menu is great and the food is outstanding. From that perspective alone, its great. I would recoomend it. The drawback for me was that its been very cold this winter in Jo'burg. We have been looking around for a nice cozy restaurant with a fireplace. Winehouse punt themselves as that. And its true that there is a gas fireplace burning but it gives off absolutely no heat at all. The restaurant was freezing. We spent the night with our coats on and, quite frankly, so did the other diners in the restaurant. Its not a warm, cozy venue. It was cold and uncomfortable. I think Cape Town restaurants get it right with their wood burning fireplaces. Jo'burg not. Pity. In relation to Winehouse, as an example, if had a lovely big woodburning fireplace it would be my number one place because the food is amazing.

Winehouse is such a great place to go to. I use it quite often for early morning coffee and breakfast meetings. It is quiet, discrete with excellent service. The breakfast is a very simple menu. Recently they prepared something for my guest that wasn't on the menu. The eggs benedict are the best in this city. Evening is a special treat for the special events in ones life and it is an expensive night out but worth it for the occasion.

As long-standing fans of this boutique hotel, it’s great to see the return of a consistent standard at the Winehouse restaurant. My favorite aspect is the cozy, intimate, yet elegant dining room setting. The chef was engaging, and proud of his creations! The wine list has a great selection. We had the six course menu, without wine pairing. It was tasty and well presented. The only feedback I might have is the fact that peas and pea shoots repeated in two courses, and every single dish was accompanied by a broth (beautiful taste, but again, maybe a bit repetitive?)

Really enkoyed the food. Pity about the non attentive staff. Expect better, especially on a special occasion such as a Mother's day lunch. It is not that it was busy.

If I lived in Joburg I’d be here very frequently as the food is at the standard I’ve had in some of the top restaurants in London, NYC and Hong Kong. The Executive Chef came out to deliver each dish in the 4 or 6 course menu personally and the wine pairing is very good value. Thank you Johannes and team for a superb dinner.

Had the privilege to do the 9 course tasting menu at Winehouse restaurant...what an experience! I don't know if everybody is normally stuffed after a fine dining experience, but we were and it was totally worth it. The food is absolutely incredible, the staff are friendly and professional and the atmosphere is relaxed. Is is expensive? Yes. Is it worth the money? YES! If you love food, you need to save some ching! Do it!
