We have been to Jonnys on numerous times and their food has never failed. A wide variety from chicken or steak dishes, wonderful fish dishes specialising in prawns. Excellent in price

We recently went for lunch to Jonnys Place in Fourways/ Dainfern. We went with friends who had highly recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The menu was extensive, the food was delicious and the service was friendly and attentive. Overall a very satisfying...meal and we will certainly be going there regularly in future.More

One star less than 5 stars as none of the outside heaters were working and we really wanted to sit on the outside deck but due to the cool evening, this couldn’t be achieved without heating and it was a little noisy inside. The food,...however, was excellent with the prawns grilled to perfection and full of flavour, the calamari soft and tasty and the vegetables delicious. Our starter haloumi was soft and tasty, and served piping hot and fresh and the food, overall was of an excellent standard. Service was efficient and overall we thoroughly enjoyed our experience at this neighbourhood gem.More

This was my 4th visit to Jonny’s. The first two were a number of years ago. On both occasions we were served (still) frozen fish. Last year, I was invited by a colleague to meet there. The food was good and not frozen ( as...one would expect). The accompanying party seemed to enjoy the food. As a result, we decided to go again last week. What a disappointment. Despite confirming the food order with the waitress, the order was not what arrived at the table. Although not busy, when we tried to get the waitresses attention, she was too busy interacting with other waiters to notice. Some time later, another waiter passed by and missing table condiments were provided. The food itself could only be described as poor to average. I am well aware that Jonny’s is a staple favorite of the local Dainfern crowd and any negative comment is usually drowned out by supportive patrons. That said, 3 out of 4 meals have been a fail in my opinion. Farewell to Jonny’s.More

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

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
