A restaurant that remembers your preferences is really hard to find! But... At Lanser's on Main they are really going the extra mile to accommodate their guests / patrons and remembering all the finer details. The food is always exceptional. Great sized, flavourful portions, ensuring...you will never leave this restaurant hungry but probably with a doggy bag. A specials menu that changes almost daily to keep it interesting, presented by the owner or manager Ian .... and a standard menu with some old time favorites like a typical French style steak tartare and tomato tartlet to begin with. Some of my favorites are Risotto balls, Pork belly, Southern style fried chicken and the Dynamite pizza. Well curated winelist with some hard to find / boutique wines, chilled to perfection for optimum enjoyment. This team understand the business... from Blue steaks to Zucchini, business lunches to family dinners as well as occasional wine pairing evenings and private catering. I would recommend you make a booking to try them for yourself ... Don't be surprised when this becomes your favorite lunch pitstop or dinner hideout, as their hospitality is out of this world, (but only you can be the judge of that) Their service is much appreciated by customers as they have a great deal of attention to detail and treat you really well when you visit them. Allow me to say bon appétit in the meantime... as we'll as cheers to a great experience with some awesome wine and food.More

If you want to treat yourself to an special evening (or afternoon) at a quaint, unique and simply sublime restaurant, then you have to try Lanser’s on Main. The food, hospitality & staff are exceptional on every level to say the least & will never...disappoint. Lanser’s knowledge of food coupled with wine will definitely want you going back for more.

As a fairly regular visitor of Lanser's on Main, I truly enjoyed last weekend's wine pairing with Delaire Graff! Each course was delicious. The soup starter was fabulous and I especially loved the cheese croutons. My favourite part of the Wine Pairing evening is listening...to the Chef as he describes the thinking behind why each dish was paired with the various wines we tasted. Always a lovely atmosphere with great people. I can highly recommend Lanser's on Main without hesitation!More

Met up with some friends for lunch and a catchup on Saturday, it was awesome. It was really nice to see my friends again, we had a good rendezvous. Chef Lanser, Cosmos and Ian ensured we were looked after very well. Lanser have got a...awesome wine selection, sometimes some hidden gems are not on the winelist, but he made it available to us. The "Specials menu" changes on a daily basis and keep things interesting. I missed the picture of the mussels, but flown in fresh yes flown in fresh and alive, then he will cook and prepare them, just shows you the utmost attention to detail this Bistro offers. I had the haloumi pasta and we shared a steak tartar that was made in the traditional French way. I can really highly recommend this restaurant on the first floor of the Welda building on the corner of Culross and Main road opposite campus in BryanstonMore

Attended the Del La Graaf wine tasting evening last night. I can’t rave about the food enough. The wine pairing, the service and the food was absolutely world class.
