I stayed in the Southern Sun hotel for a couple of weeks whilst on business, and ate in the restaurant a handful of times as well as breakfast every day. The service was always spot on, the food was good and tasty. However, I stayed...here for two weeks and the menu did not change and there was not a specials board so the choice was rather limited. They do have a decent wine menu. Cannot fault the breakfast either.More

The advertised Sunday lunch buffet was cancelled due to "low ooccupancy " Pasta and short rib good. Sole and salmon trout lousy Service very good because there were only 2 tables occupied!!! Pity. This was an elegant white table cloth restaurant with a view of...black swans on the pond.More

We've been going to Punchinello's for a few years now for the Sunday lunch buffet to celebrate the year end. The price per head has increased quite substantially over time and this price excludes drinks. It makes it a rather expensive lunch once you’ve added...drinks. The variety, quality and quantity of food provided has dropped noticeably over the years. During our last visit the chef displayed a bad, dismissive attitude. The waitress continually removed our drinks before we were finished. Sadly, I personally will not be going back.More

The place is really nice with top quality at a really incredible price and good service. Maybe they do not have several options but enough to enjoy. So is a really recomendable place.

PUNCHINELLO'S is situated right at the hotel for your convenience. We had the most delicious breakfast and enjoyed the fresh veggie juices and home-baked croissants. The staff was friendly and very helpful.

I had a 10:00 meeting in Fourways and wanted to kill some time, so I had breakfast at Punchinello’s, while dealing with emails. They make a good coffee, and the breakfast offering is a wide range, as you’d expect from a hotel. The price of...R180 is very competitive. This a good way to start a day.More

We booked a birthday party. The Buffet Lunch on a Sunday was outstanding. Food was fresh and delicious. The service provided by our waiter Thabo was 100% on par. Thank you for making the birthday party a memorable and enjoyable experience.
