This restaurant is the real deal - amazing food in a very trendy setting. We ordered a wide variety of dishes and shared them between us, this is definitely the way to go. The steamed brioche was to die for! In fact, all of the food was super tasty and they have a very reasonable wine list. We will definitely... More

What a fantastic surprise! The food was amazing - each dish big enough to share and a taste sensation! Having beer tasting and pairing just fitted so well. We will definitely return!

Reviewing Urbanologi is very difficult as I would rate them very high when it comes to the quality and taste of the food. Well prepared and well thought combination of textures and combination of taste. The service was good but no thought was given in the manner that the various dishes where sent out. No structure in getting the green... More

Busy and buzzy! Wonderfully diverse range of dishes and a great relaxed service. A real urban chic venue with a broad mix of customers across all ages. Not overly cheap but not overpriced for what it was either. ZAR375/£25 pp including drinks. Need to book.

The tapas are delicious (my favourite way of dining) and craft beer first class. Great atmosphere with the restaurant placed around the large beer brewing and fermentation tanks. Modern design, great vibe. This restaurant does tapas and craft beer at it's best!

Rugged exterior of the Mad Giant brewery off set by sophisticated fusion tapas made for a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Joburg CBD. Interesting new places to go to that aren't in a mall or one of Joburgs renowned alternative eating-districts (eg. Maboneng, parkhurst, greenside or braamfontein.) are always a must for me. And Urbanologie certainly did not disappoint.

The food was great. Yes is is a little pricey but I enjoyed it. Try the ginger beer I did not expect to enjoy it so much. I actually liked the oversized industrial furniture.

For ambience & quality of cuisine I will give Urbanologi 5/5 Pricing & range of drinks on offer a definite 1/5! Shocked at the mad prices on the drinks list! Was okay-ish to pay R370 for a bottle of MCC! Pricey but hey...We buy ZAR products 🇿🇦 R53 for a shot of tequila!!! What the hell???? Sorry but definitely not... More

A shot of tequila for R53 or close on $5 not so great. No mixes. The local sparkling wine was also excessively expensive. The food was great though so I guess it's a give and take...
