I spend a lot of time in Sandton for meetings and my favorite place to arrange a business lunch is Piccolo Mondo. Good coffee, central location and the creme brûlée is delicious. Staff are helpful and friendly.

The epitome of high tea. Beautiful setting, fine china and the most delightful little treats. The dessert table was groaning with gastronomic treats and it was difficult to choose without looking like a little piglet. Our waiter, Dumisani, was excellent.

The restaurant exemplifies the hotel's status in the city. We really enjoyed the dish section of the breakfast buffet. The three-course dinner also displays the quality and service.

What a lovely dinner we had here. The service was great, our server made some good suggestions for both the wine and our meals. Food came out super fast yet we never felt rushed.

I met a friend from Cape Town for dinner at this restaurant. We really enjoyed their interesting cocktails and loving gin both went for a cocktail that included gin. It was worth the steep price. The food was also very good except that the waitress did not get the type of pasta my friend wanted right. However, the food was also worth the price. It was also beautifully served. The portions were ample, so much so, that we did not have any dessert, although it looked delicious.
