What an amazing experience. We we're blown away with the friendly service and amazing food. Each dish an artwork and masterpiece. Complimented by the most amazing wines. Chef Chantel definitely knows her stuff. She is not the Chef of the Year for nothing. Sommelier Germain is the most knowledgeable wine fundi I've ever met. Their wine list is awe inspiring.... More

Once again a wonderful evening at Mosaic. The food was supposed to only compliment the wine but definitely did not take a back seat. All the dishes were tasty, beautifully prepared and we would have been happy to just have a big bowl of any single dish. The menu was a well thought out tour of a selection of tastes.... More

WOW - WOW and WOW! A gastronomic delight for the ye and the palate. Chef Chantel Dartnall provide us the best meal I have ever experienced anywhere in my fairly extensive travels. No exaggeration. We had a private 6 seater dining area with pre-dinner sitting area. Chantel came in and explained her thinking behind all the elements of the 9... More

I was treated to a belated birthday, and what an awesome experience. The personal attention from Chantel, Mari and staff was something you don't see anywhere else. The place is absolutely stunning, and each dish made with passion and perfection. The wine pairing was perfect with stunning wines you don't come across every day. We even received a special e-mail... More

The experience was very good, everything from the décor of the restaurant, the atmosphere and the food was amazing. The chef was very friendly and the food was explained to us by the friendly staff. The flavours were delicious and presented well. It is an expensive experience, but well worth it. I would love to go again!

Chantell is the head chef and from the moment you walk in the whole experience is exceptional. The waiters the private areas where you eat: all perfect. We did the wine pairing as well, and this was not necessary in retrospect. Next time I go there I will go to their excellent cellar and choose wine for the meal, rather... More

My wife made a reservation for our anniversary. One of her best decisions ever! After the welcome drinks with 2 items to eat, we proceeded to have the 5 course meal paired with wine. A nine course is also available. I can't recall the details of each dish apart from that it really looks like the pictures on the website... More

We have eaten at quite a few fine dining restaurants, and Mosaic is by far the best! Every plate is a piece of art, the wine is absolutely fabulous and the service top notch! This is one of those places that you have to visit before you die. What an experience!
