If you want good tapas and great vibe and something different then this a must for all the foodies out there . The food is diverse and satisfies all tastes from meat eaters to vegetarians. I’m definitely going back!

Had a very good time at Urbanologi. Staff is friendly and food is delicious. Especially the duck pancakes, spider steak and mushroom spring rolls. Smoking only allowed outside. Safe parking for your car in a guarded parking lot for R20. Beautiful interior as well.

It's a large building with an airy warehouse type feel. Contemporary and modern. Two of us shared 8 savoury dishes and 3 dessert plates. I would particularly recommend the teriyaki sweet potato with goat yoghurt, and the pork belly with butternut puree and tamarind dip....More

Had a fab Monday evening dinner here with family and friends - it was quiet but that worked really well as I can imagine it would be a bit hectic and impersonal on a fri/sat night. The tapas dishes were interesting and well thought-out with...More

Urbanologi is located in the Mad Giant brewery in New Town, Centre of Jozi. It's a large, modern space located next to all the brewing tanks. Seating offers some less comfy bench type tables and some more typical restaurant-style tables and chairs. When we walked...More
