“Great fine dining ”
Review of View Restaurant

View Restaurant
Ranked #75 of 1 390 Restaurants in Johannesburg
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Contemporary
Description: View references the city's art scene without pretention or fuss. The space is meant to resemble an art gallery, reflecting the inky shades of the cityscape just after sunset, graduating from midnight blue to pale shades of light blue. Restrained interiors, envisioned by renowned international design firm Blacksheep, feature an elegant, elevated dining space designed to complement rather than detract from the food.

My wife invited me for dinner at view for my birthday. It was a great experience from the food, the wine and the service. I have been to a few fine dining restaurant (Michelin star rated) in Europe and this one was on par with these. Special was the dedicated birthday cake !

Got the tasting menu for dinner and it was an incredible experience. The staff was so friendly and catered to our every request. The tasting menu is a lot of food but it is so good. Would suggest getting a table that has a view of the outside and the kitchen as well - very fun to see the chefs at work.

Dear Love2flyy,

Thank you for the valuable feedback after a recent visit for breakfast in View. This is our signature breakfast which boasts a wide array of pastries, smoked salmon, local cheeses and fruits. Beyond the continental buffet offering, our chefs stand ready to prepare fresh hot dishes whether its eggs benedict, omelets, eggs your way & then garnished with all the sides. Our team should have taken you through the options available so your experience was delivered as intended by the restaurant. We hope you had the opportunity to experience the freshly squeezed juice made daily which our guests seem to enjoy. We will continue to elevate our offering to rival the best breakfast experience in the city. We hope to see you back in View again soon.

Sincerely,

Matt Barber
Director of Food & Beverage

Our group of four had dinner last night at View, the fine dining restaurant located at the Four Seasons, Westcliff. This restaurant is at the top of a hill with wonderful city views. The dining room is divided in several mini-sections. We were seated in front of the kitchen and we were able to observe the hustle of preparing their fine meals. The menu is a fixed menu only with a regular tasting menu (6-courses), and a larger degustation menu (8 courses). Wine pairing is offered. My friend and I selected the regular degustation menu, while his wife and mine chose the pescatarian tasting menu.
Once the courses started coming, we were delighted and surprised with one great dish after another. I don't think anyone at the table complained of a single disappointing dish. The chef excels in preparing complex dishes with a perfect combination of flavors and textures. The presentation was on point on every single course. Service was extremely friendly and efficient.
In summary, it was a lovely evening at the View.
