My family & I agreed that lunch @ Bellgables Country restaurant will be the best place to enjoy our Christmas lunch- Best decision ever! The service 10/10. The food 110% delicious. Erroll, the Master chef knows what he is doing. ❤ The ambiance 120%

Such an uplifting soul-feeding evening of simply amazing food in a magical space!! The wife and I so needed to escape reality and the proprietor Errol took us to another world of opulence and flavours. Thank you.

I hosted a party of ±50 guests at this beautiful quaint restaurant, which is a little gem ± 10kms outside of Johannesburg. Driving through giraffes, springbok, impala and zebra was such a welcome sight, that immediately relaxes you. The restaurant, with its beautiful decor, scrumptious...food prepared by world-renowned Chef Errol Gobey is something to die for. We were treated with such hospitality, that I will definitely host my future functions at this fine establishment.More

Amazing place, in a game reserve with an odd yet beautiful assortment of objets d’art. Tall bronzes of Roman or Greek gods vie with huge Thai temple lions, and each table has an assortment of stuff. Food good but not excellent, generous servings, friendly, helpful...staff make dining here an enjoyable experience.More

Beautiful place in the countryside. We even saw wild zebras. The garden is beautiful and the restaurant great decorated. The staff is quite slow and not always understand what you ask. We were the only four in this big restaurant. The creamy soup of mushrooms...was tasty. But my lambshank over cooked and swimming in a sauce I didn’t like. The garnish was cold and not appetizing. The dessert average. No to be honest expected much more at this nice place. Also not cheap hereMore

We haven't been here for a while and I must say it is still the same wonderful experience as we have had before! We have never been to Bellgables at night and it is really magical with all the candles, the funky, eclectic decor -...one feels like Ali Baba entering the magical cave full of treasures! There is NO other place in the world quite like Bellgables as far as decor and ambiance is concerned.As usual we were welcomed very warmly and the staff was on point. Errol, the owner and chef did his magic with the food and it was presented beautifully - each plate a picture in itself. Honestly there is nothing I find negative here. Is it a bit pricey - not to my mind. If one wants real quality food in a beautiful setting (day or night!) Bellgables cannot be beat. Thanks Errol and staff for making our birthdays special and memorable! We WILL be back!More

The evening we visited we were one of only two tables. However the service was good and the food superb The restaurant itself is filled with antiques of all sorts and origins which makes for a very different ambience. Quiet elegance
