Popped in for a quick lunch. The service was top notch for this little gem with a steam punk atmosphere. A maze of places to sit, and little library. The food was delicious so I ordered another round of the same. A bakery on site...and pizza oven too. I would highly recommend this even if you have to travel far. A true gem.More

We had breakfast out front and only realised when leaving that the best part is out back. The bacon, avo and feta on rye was really good and Americano strong. Would go again if in the area but the antiques are not what they were.

Great menu, from burgers to local specials, salads and all. Nice desserts. But kitchen closes at 8pm ! So don’t be late and get going.

Nico & Naomi and their team always go above and beyond for their customers. Their food is superb, the service is wonderful and the steam-punk decor just adds that "something special" touch. My best place to eat out BY FAR!! Thanks so much for making...my recent birthday dinner such a memorable experience.More

Great hidden gem in Kensington / Bedfordview. Food is delicious and atmosphere is inviting with a chilled vibe. Waiters are not very friendly and they do no not allow ant substitutes, according to the waiter serving the outside area. Service is swift, food takes some...time as it is freshly prepared. Worth the wait though. Great for a coffee with a friend or even on your own.More

Hi there, thanks for the review. The waiter is correct with the substitutes. The chef spends hours putting recipes together so we do stick to them. There is however option to add on to your food anything you like.

Booked for a pre-holiday family dinner at our fav Artisan Bistro and as per usual it did not disappoint. The staff and management go above and beyond to give you a 5 star experience and you are always made to feel like family🤗 All of...us ordered their steaks bar one vegan family member, and have posted some pics to whet your appetites. The Mushroom Truffle sauce...almost licked the plate 😋 Do yourselves a favour and pay a visit to this establishment......it might just become your fav too!!😎More

Noticed this Bistro two years ago when needing a breakie. Was immediately transported into its olde world charm via the front porch (complete with broekie lace) all the way to the back seating area (through the pub called the "Speakeasy" - a Harley rider's paradise)where...there is a wall length, built in, beautifully upholstered bench and book shelves filled with books of every description . They offer a community service - bring one, take one! Turns out, Nico Brandt, is indeed a chef, and not just a business owner. Believe me when I say, the extensive menu and food speaks for itself. It not only caters for everyone, it is sublime. We simply keep going back for more! When next in Johannesburg, put this on your bucket list. You are sure to see us there.....More
