Johnny's is the only consistently good restaurant I have been to in Joburg. It's always excellent and the service is always good, as the waiters are properly trained and interactive. I have never had a bad meal here and the food had been consistently excellent...whether it's prawns, chicken or a poke bowl. It's all delicious!More

Brilliant!! Went on a Wednesday evening and restaurant was packed. Food was great. You can see the owner is hands on.

Great service and incredible food! Love the blue cheese snails, seafood to steak to gourmet gin. The salmon is fresh and their tacos are worth it!

We've had three take-aways during Lockdown and they've been perfect and delicious. Just missing the atmosphere of the restaurant. Baby kingklip, generous portions; pasta loaded with content; crispy chips if you plan to arrive as they come out of the kitchen; the same personalised service....Well done Jonny. You deserve it!!!More

Family went for a Sunday lunch. Staff was welcoming and well trained on the food selections on the menu. Good service. Menu selection excellent (with great specials for the day) and good wine and beverages available. Kiddies menu available. There is a non-smoking and smoking...area with TV's for the sport crazy fans and also music in background. Food was presented very well and really excellent. What I liked most is there is a lot of seating available but the tables and chairs are not cramped on top of each other. Will definitely go again! Lively with music and TV's if you want to followMore

By far the best restaurant in Joburg. We have been probably 10 times in the last year and never had a bad meal. The service is excellent, food amazing and there is always a great atmosphere. Johnny is always there , without fail and ensuring...everyone is happy. He greets guests like he has known us for years. Their baby chicken is fantastic and their Portuguese steak is the best. Every day there are specials. Can’t say more about this restaurant. There is a reason why you have to book even on a Tuesday. He is always full and it is no surprise.More

Popped into Johnnys tonight after a fantastic day! Lamb chops, prawns, chicken and trinchado the order of the day. Outstanding food, exceptional service, great vibe and the perfect way to end the day!

We were astounded to find that the owner allowed his function to spill over into the restaurant area, which turned it into a raucous, drunken, rowdy sports bar. The owner explained that this was a regular Saturday afternoon problem. As a paying guest expecting a...lovely dining experience with my family, this turned into a decidedly unpleasant customer experience. I would recommend that the owner reflect on the needs of all his customers. We will definitely never go to Johnny’s again and we will share this with everyone we know.More
