It takes a very brave person to get to Urbanologi, as you have to drive through dark, deserted street that remind you areas of urban warfare. Once you get there, you are rewarded by a stunning building and a beautiful space.
There were approximately 15 of us and we had a set menu: food was by and large ok, but below expectations given the write ups. It just didn’t seem worth the drive through the area. The only highlight was the service, which was lovely and very attentive.

A friend and I ate there for lunch on Saturday. Food was superbly plated like works of art and exceptionally tasty and well spiced without one feeling it was over-spiced. Hot food also managed to be served hot, a pet hate of mine is when food which should be served hot is served cold.Service was excellent. Calamari was succulent with a very interesting sauce and chimi chicken great spicing. As it is a tapas menu be warned to leave enough space for pudding. We tried the ones featured on the web site pictures - absolutely fabulous. I will not say more or I will spoil the surprise.

Tapas style menu with a fantastic variety of interesting dishes to suit all. Food very well prepared and presented - reflected in the price. Great service.

Having heard all the great reviews we took American visitors to Urbanologi yesterday for lunch.

Food was tasty, portions were very small. The chicken was delicious, the lamb was very “chewy” had to be sent back to be cooked properly. The chokka/ Calamari was tasty but also very chewy “over cooked”

A disappointing meal. Not sure about all the hype around it.

Urbanologi is situated in an urban renewal part of downtown Jhb in Fox Street.

The restaurant is huge and it very suitable for hosting large groups. They brew some of their own craft beer as well and make some wine.

The menu is quite exciting and is tapas style. The yakitori chicken and tempura mushrooms were a win.

The general atmosphere is also really cool. We had great service from our waiter and the staff in general.

Well worth a visit.
