Amazing amazing amazing! Attention to detail to the very end. We were greeted by our names, we received a welcome drink, everybody was very attentive the entire time. They even took in account the dietary requirements I wrote when making the reservation and consulted us about them at the beginning of the dinner. The restaurant is stunning and every detail of it has been thought through. The food was visually beautiful and full of flavour and taste. The night even included entertainment with a fire dancer or flame blower, if you preferred the term. The background music was perfect.
I cannot say anything wrong about the restaurant since they made sure the entire evening was perfect. It is not a cheap bill but it is worth every rand. It is a good balance of price/quality or the kind of attention you get. I would definitively go again...and again.

A real find. a combination of food, fun, funk and frills (the latter a surprize burlesque show) made for a great evening.
With the most interesting history, the Gentlemen's Club is great place, with
ambiance to spare. As a wine drinker, I cannot rage about the cocktails, which they are a feature on the beverage list, try for yourself. The dégustation menu we had was imaginative, well plated and had a few new tastes I had not experienced before, notably a basil soil and a pumpkin brûlée.
Old world feel is further complemented by the references on the menu of food based in the beginning of the 20th century cuisine, thank the turtle soup which was so popular, had been ditched for a bouillabaisse.
Sadly this gem is not open for business normally, thus a more corporate venue; fear not, apparently that is going to change.
