Hidden away behind a small shopping centre. Found the service excellent, food good, decor fine..most probably more fun of a lunchtime rather than dinner unless you do not want to be noticed!! Low key, fine.......

My friends and I were treated to an amazing culinary feast. The food was superb to say the least, the flavour combinations were amazing and the manor in which the food was displayed and served resulted in a very complimentary evening.

Description
LBV, which opened in December 2013, has become a Bryanston neighbourhood institution. Since Chef Darren and his partner Lisa became partners in the business they have adopted the culture of the upmarket restaurant while incorporating their own fine dining experience to bring a truly unique offering to the JHB market… A la carte fine dining! The South African born duo broadened their horizons after 5 years at the helm of Cube Tasting Kitchen with a worldwide culinary journey in which they discovered new techniques, trends and flavour combinations that you will find on the restaurant’s seasonal menu.
