We ate the The Grand Pavilion restaurant for three of our four nights in Johannesburg. The seafood was excellent and kept us coming back each night. We had wonderful service from Tebogo but the entire staff that we interacted with were lovely and attentive. If...we find ourselves in Sea Point again, we will absolutely come back.More

This restaurant was a short walk from our hotel and proved to be an absolute winner. Front of house, Alex and our server Alan were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble and the service was impeccable. We revisited a second time and it confirmed our...first experience. The calamari and our fish were stunning as was the trio of venison eaten on the 2nd visit. An outstanding place and if you’re staying in Sea Point put it on your must visit list.More

After calling 3 times on the day and waiting for someone to call back, we were finally able to confirm a booking for 2 people after insisting to hold on for assistance. When arriving we were taken to our seat where we waited 20 minutes...before we were asked for our drinks order then another 20 minutes before we received our drinks. My husband received his starter before mine arrived again, 29 minutes later. The waiter seemed overwhelmed and was taking care of too many tables. The place seems understaffed. The mains arrived and I was so disappointed by the baby kingklip as it was a bit dry and seemed like it was standing in the warmer waiting to be collected. The Mozambican sauce made up for the taste but this meal was not worth the price. Was really looking forward to the experience after hearing some good reviews on it! Unfortunately I won’t be back.More

We love Grand Pavilion! Harry’s Bar is our go to on a Saturday night … We get treated like royalty- the amazing bar staff take care of us so well, it makes us feel special. When we walk in we are always greeted warmly and...excitedly by the fabulous host Robin who goes out of his way to make us comfortable. Over at the bar - our favorite seating area, the fabulous bar men greet us with the biggest smiles and have our bottle of bubbles ready to pop, ice on the side and the menus ready as they know that a little later we will want to eat. Harry’s bar is vibrant and gives the feel of an exclusive bar and night club in an intimate setting. Here you feel that anything goes and what happens in Harry’s, stays in Harrys’s 😉. A big shout out to Ian and James at the bar! Professional, friendly and charming. Can’t wait to be back!More

Hi Nivag The restaurant has a big generator and inverters and can therefore run during loadshedding. You won't even notice load shedding has started :)
