Our evening at the Gentleman's Arthouse was one of the most unique dining experiences my partner and I have had. From the intimate setup, welcome cocktails, and entertainment, I could not fault the evening. The highlight of the evening, for me, was hearing about the history of the building. The food experience and flavour combinations were unique; however, I did feel that the main course and dessert portions were slightly too big, following the dishes that we had already had. Apart from the portion size, the food was delicious. The food highlights, for me, were the pearl barley and foie gras combination, as well as the restaurants take on boeuf wellington - the fillet was cooked to perfection.

Gentleman’s Arthouse is an architectural marvel that has stood the test of time, and they’ve done a grand job of turning this old lavatory into a must-do dining experience. From the refurbished urinal seats to ceilings that haven’t been touched in 100 years, this authentic venue proved to be a fascinating find.

Gentleman’s Arthouse is an architectural marvel that has stood the test of time, and they’ve done a grand job of turning this old lavatory into a must-do dining experience. From the refurbished urinal seats to ceilings that haven’t been touched in 100 years, this authentic venue proved to be a fascinating find.
The waiters were knowledgeable and speedy, making sure the courses arrived on time and you knew what you were eating.
The starter course for me was quite average, needing a bit more oomph to show off some fancy ingredients. The dessert was quite a spectacle but became a bit too sickly sweet after a few bites. The main course, however, redeemed the entire meal. The fillet was cooked to perfection, and the pepper sauce was perfect. Definitely the highlight of the meal.
Overall it’s an experience you should definitely try, mainly for the quirky and historical ambience.

Very intriguing choice for a restaurant, but what a wonderful transformation.
We were welcomed with refreshing cocktails we haven't tried before in environment we haven't dined before either. And everything that followed was getting better and better.
Extremely well presented meals that were nothing short of delicious with one or another surprise.
The entertaining dance before the main course was a real delight too setting up the mood for the rest of the evening long after the dinner.
This is definitely one of Johannesburg's hidden treasures - literally. A proper directions will help any future guests as we needed a bit of luck to find the place.

Thanks for the great time.
