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.

Expected much more, we were a table of 8m an occasion of celebration for us.. Pork belly was very fatty hardly any meat on it and it was expensive for such a small fatty portion. Beetroot polenta with the duck was too grainy as if...not cooked long enough and duck was very dry. The stuffing in the baby chicken was not tasty but the chicken was well cooked. Overall the first visit and definitely the last.More
