Cafe del sol is my go to for genuinely always good fine dining food. The dishes are always fantastic and tasty. The ambience is modern and clean. The service is brilliant. Really a place to try.
This is one of my all time favorite restaurants hands down.my wife and I had our first date here l.you can’t go wrong with anything you order.the service and food is impeccable!!!!i prefer this to the bryanston location only because I think it’s a bit more intimate.
Amazing food, drinks, and ambiance. Excellent services friendly staff and manager we were greeted with a smile. I will definitely call in again.
Went there for a romantic evening, and although we booked last minute, they still managed to find a space for us, the atmosphere was lovely, the staff amazing and super friendly made us smile all the time and the food absolutely mouth watering delicious. Will definitely go back.
After so long wanting to try Cafe del Sol we finally did and wow, food was amazing, the restaurant is pricey but the food is definitely worth it. I had the Aurora gnocchi and hubby the arabiatta, and a lemon curd cheesecake takeaway. Food was amazing and we will definitely be back.
Recently celebrated a birthday here; lovely & friendly service.
Food was fresh, delicious and well prepared with good sized portions.
Will definitely be back to try some of the other things on the menu.
We had a recent anniversary dinner at Cafe Del Sol, and they did not disappoint.
Our waiter had a fantastic sense of humour and was always attentive eithout being intrusive - I've never experienced such excellent service before.
The food is utterly amazing, with a fantastic variety and mouth watering flavours.
Cafe Del Sol Classico should be a must visit for everyone, at least once - and then again!
The best Alfredo I have ever had. 5/4 For that alone I give the 5 star experience. Fresh Tagliatelle beautifully and delicately crafted. Then the dark chocolate gelato and almond semi freddo stood out. The other pasta dishes needed an extra finesse. Authentic Italian management and owners and training Johannesburg chefs and staff must be an epic act of love. I'm writing this 30.minutes from leaving so my impressions are fresh and raw. You can see that the owners have put in passion and attention to detail. Put down your smartphones and soak in the ambience of a vibrantly natural social environment. Good for couples and adult groups. Leave the rugrats at home. An impressive sampling of French Champagne, Italian bubbles and a high class range of South African MCCs and other wines. Go for the best and enjoy. I had 2 desserts due to greed and enthusiasm. Save up. Take friends and get happy raucous.
Once again an outstanding experience. The service is professional and friendly, and the food is amazing. We all shared all the starters on the menu, my favorite being the Italian Springrolls. The ravioli did not disappoint, with a light truffle cream sauce. We look forward to our next visit.
How i did not make my way to Cafe del Sol after living literally around the corner for 2 years. So i finally got around to it and my experience was really good.
I love the open space feeling and the fact that you can see what is cooking in the kitchen, it gives a very homely feel and you are relaxed the moment you sit down. Also a big shout out to the hostess, se was amazing and really made us feel so welcome.
We started of with fried squid and the ravioli of the day. The garlic aioli that came with the squid was creamy and rich, but it was the ravioli filled with porchini and ricotta that really blowed me away.
We ordered mains, i was in the mood for some just good honest pasta so went with the arrabiata sauce, it was nice and the pea shoots added a nice flavour. We also had the crispy chicken breast with porchini and truffle sauce, and it was WOW!
Deserts were the chocolate fondant, loved the caramalised orange peel, and added lovely contrasting flavours. Will definitely return to try the other menu items
Simply spectacular! The food was amazing, the service was impeccable and thoughtful and the decor is timeless. Now for the food, the pastsa was so delicious and tasty. The creamy sauce was so flavourful with succulent chicken piece. Definitely a winner. Then the pozza was perfection, thin crispy base, delightful toppings and no shortness of toppings. Finally the dessert was mouth-watering .so deep in flavours but not overly rich. A chocolate lover's dream.
Visited Cafe Del Sol In HoneyDew Randburg. My partner and I had a chicken sesame stir-fry and stuffed calamari. The food was exquisite to say the least. Only down side was the decor of the place, it’s quite underwhelming and plain compared to other restaurants in the city. The Customer service was phenomenal, unlike anything I’ve experienced in Johannesburg. When you talk to the waiter it’s as though you are talking to the chef, well informed and impeccable with attention to detail. The desert was also breathtaking.
My wife and I have been regulars at Classico.As we always celebrate our anniversary here!I sent a mail through to make a booking at the new location as it would be our first time there.Though we need to try the Botanico branch.Classio is quite sentimental to us having had our first date there!
The service was impeccable as usual, they really did go out of their way to make us feel truly special!
What can I say about the food to be honest I’ve never had a disappointing meal here always exceptional!
See you guys soon!
What a fantastic evening out. The ambience, food and service was exceptional. Thank you for going out of your way to make the evening special for us. The roses and lighting were perfect. Compliments to the owners, management and staff on a superbly run dining establishment.
Updating my review after visiting for the second time. We received outstanding service from Joubert and Chirac. Joubert had us giggling evertime he came around to check on us. We ordered the chefs special fillet and the pepper corn fillet and the flavor was amazing. The Salted Caramel Crème Brûlée is a must try for dessert!
Without a doubt one of the best restaurants in Johannesburg. The food is fantastic and service is great with an excellent selection of wines. It's great for date nights or an up market dinner with friends and family.
Every visit to Cafe Del Sol is a great experience especially in the new location in Blueberry.
The now have pizza which is a great addition to the already brilliant menu.

If I could give this place more than 5 stars I would. The food is Soo incredible. Service was impeccable. And amazing place for a date. Go here you won't be disappointed!
Someone , I presume to be the owner or manager , was carefully inspecting all the food coming out of the kitchen and I did see her send some plates back to the chef's. This was brilliant to see one of the reasons that makes this place incredible.
What a fabulous restaurant! The food was so amazing. Fresh pasta made every day. You can see it hanging in the kitchen, everything is open and so fun to see. Absolutely gorgeous natural light and decor. Service was impeccable with big genuine smiles and prompt serving of drinks and foods. Can see this becoming a family regular
Firstly the food was outstanding and memorable as experienced over years- Great views of JHB. Decor is cool minimalist and without atmosphere- Service was friendly but untrained and well below par.
The whole experience was perfect.
From the booking to the last morsel.
The quotes on the walls are very inspiring, and one particular will always guide my path.
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.”
