Undoubtedly the best restaurant in Northern Joburg for service, good and ambience! The waiters are knowledgeable and friendly, you glass is never empty and you don't even notice it being refilled. The lamb shank is a must!!

Wombles ticks all my boxes. Interestingly varied dishes, perfectly cooked, spotless napery and cutlery, cheerful and professional service - and best of all, very fair pricing -from a UK viewpoint, anyway.

We were given a very poorly placed table (for2) which the woman at the front admitted to as being an inferior table. I asked for a better table. After quite... More

Womles is one of my favourite restaurants of anywhere I've been and every time I go back to JHB I make certain that a visit to Wombles is included. As per usual the service was excellent and friendly with everyone greeting you from the guard at the entrance to the manager. The food was perfect and I had my usual... More

Pleasant for business lunches or that special evening. Relaxing atmosphere, attentive staff, cosy outside, with a warm blanket and the fire! Varied menu!
