Amazing. The food is delicious. I had the Mussels for starter, kingklip for main and lava cake for dessert. That starter was a meal on its own and welldone to the chefs for that deliciouscreamy sauce. The portions are big and the food is really tasty. The gin is just as good.
OMG... one of the best restaurants ever... Humphrey is something else I tell you... his service is out of this world... The manager is also helpful and friendly... I love how it feels like home... I'm definitely going back again soon. Did I mention that they make the best cabbage... yes cabbage... I love it

An elegant restaurant & great atmosphere. Very cosy. A bit pricey on some items, but they are very generous with their servings. Great place for pictures for your significant other
The food was delicious and tasty, very surprising. The waiter was friendly and helpful. The T-Bone was tender and perfectly cooked, a perfect medium rare. The potatoe side was nice and crispy. The small side salad was quite a lot once I put it in the plate. The prices were very reasonable
We were part of an end of year function here at Forti, and I am speechless!
From being greeted by the door to friendly smiles all the way round feeling right at home everything was spectacular!

Would I recommend? - 100% yes
Had an amazing experience here, the service was great. Our waiter Ntate Aubrey, what a wonderful and kind man. The managers come around and check if you’re okay , we even received a mini history lesson about Forti. The food was absolutely delicious, worth every cent. Loved the ambiance of the place as well
This was my first visit to Forti.
We ordered the fillet steak for R700 for two people and I can say without a doubt, it was worth every cent. I have never in my life tasted such wonderfully prepared food.
This was an oral orgasm!
And our waiter, Joseph, gave us absolute 5 star service. We will be back and happy to spend R700 on a fillet steak again!
Well done to the Forti team!
What an amazing dining experience! Great service from the staff at Forti - special shout out to Mr Catz and Mark. Great wine pairings to the food (word of warning - you’re gonna get LIT). I’ve posted the food as well as what wine it was paired with. I wish I was a food critic so I could go into every dish but alas, just know that this is a good way to see the range in food that is on offer. I personally preferred the gnocchi in the Gorgonzola sauce more than the Napolitana.
Reservations in advance are essential to secure a good table.
I would also recommend arriving earlier, we had a 7PM reservation and had to rush through the last few courses because of time.
They also have the most amazing artworks in the restaurant - elegant ambiance. The place was quite packed (hence reservations!). I loved the experience, will definitely be back!
My daughter and I had the most amazing daddy daughter dinner, taken care of by the exceptional Humphrey.
When in Menlyn, you HAVE to visit this wonderful restaurant.
What a great evening🤗 The food was absolutely the best. Lovely fresh bread while waiting for the food. I had lamb chops medium - perfectly cooked with the right amount of fat on each chop. The portion was more than enough. I am scared to have mash at a restaurant, but with the pepper sauce it was perfect. Veggies lovely an crunchy. My daughter had fillet - melt in the mouth. As a side the most delicious French crispy onion rings. Our waiter Wilson was a kind attentive man and we wanted for nothing please share with him this review. The service was exceptionally fast.
I'm gonna start by saying, the view is absolutely beautiful. So the price of the food makes sense, cos you're also paying for the view. I've had not so good experiences with seafood pasta, but I gave it a try and it was the best I have ever had. Perfect spice, sauce, presentation, everything njhe. The 4 star is for the ribs not falling off the bone, but overall this restaurant has won my heart. Bravo👏👏👏
Had dinner at this establishment lastnight and was very impressed with the service. We were served complimentary bread rolls. I didn't know what to order and the waiter asked if he could create a platter for us, I agreed and was surprised with ribs, chicken wings, chips and veggies. The portion size was great and I had ribs for breakfast and lunch today
This is a very nice Italian restaurant with all the best pizzas and pastas. For the not so loving fan of that, there is also a whole section with all the best cuts of steak. The food was good and the staff very friendly. The owner even came around to check if everything was in order. Would definitely recommend!
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING EXPERIENCE 👏 Excellent service, divine meals & stunning setting creates the perfect backdrop to a wonderful evening/meal
While reading all the reviews, I felt I had to leave a comment to a few people who were a bit extreme with their reviews on hygiene. Without mentioning names of course.
I worked in this kitchen myself for some time. I am a chef with 30 years experience. And without a doubt, I can honestly say that the kitchen is one of the cleanest kitchen I have worked in. Not to mention the layout and equipment are state of the art. - Mario Michael Kontaxis
Located on top of the Times Square Casino, this restaurant has a beautiful view especially if your are seated on the deck over looking the streets. The service we got was extremely friendly, our food order came quickly and tasted quite good. A must try
This has to be the best fine dining restaurant in PTA. The service was superb. Even waiters who didn’t serve us were so friendly.
Shout out to Abuti Humphrey the best waiter ever.
