My first visit to Flames and I absolutely loved the entire experience. The food was prepared to perfection and the staff's attention to detail blew me away. Let's not forget the view that is to die for. I cannot wait to go back.

This is a beautiful restaurant with an amazing view. All the staff members were friendly except one manager but nonetheless it was amazing

I’ve eaten here many times and always had good food and service as one expects.
The food was not bad if it was your first, but knowing what to expect I was disappointed.
I ordered a bottle of the Miss Lucy and she asked if it was a white wine.
I was told that the line fish was sea bass and received salmon.
My friend had the fillet and the truffle Mayo and vine tomatoes were missing. Instead she got bone marrow. She had to ask for the missing items and was then told it’s a new Menu so the kitchen is still finding their feet.
The Creme brûlée was too sweet and not set.
Other than that we had a good time, enjoyed our wine and the view.
Will not return for a restaurant week special but will come back for their brunch.

Food was great, but service could have been better for a restuarant of this quality. The atmosphere and views are breathtaking.

About Flames

Sip sundowners on the terrace while our chefs prepare elevated reinterpretations of regional favorites – think dry-spice–rubbed sea bass or the best grilled burger you’ve ever tasted – that use fresh, of-the-moment ingredients.


The Chef

From the age of seven his love for food began while cooking with his mom and gran, which spirited his ultimate passion for food. Chef Daniels career started at the International Hotel School having completed a Diploma in Professional cookery and Kitchen management. During this time Chef Daniel joined some of Johannesburg’s top hotels as a trainee chef gaining as much experience as he could . He then joined the Junior Culinary Team of South Africa for four years working under Klaus Beckmann, who was the former executive chef of the old Westcliff Hotel. During his time on the South African team, he competed in both local and international competitions including the International Young Chefs challenge in Korea and The African Culinary cup. Joining Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff as part of the opening team at Flames Restaurant as Chef de partie moving his way up the ladder. During this time, he went on task force to Four Season Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat in France gaining invaluable experience in both the all-day dining and signature Restaurant Le CAP prized for its Michelin star. Having worked under multiple Michelin starred chefs has groomed him for his role as Executive Chef at Flames Restaurant. “Inspiration for a dish can literally come out of anywhere ,” remarks Chef Payne. “Walking through crunchy autumn leaves can ignite an idea or a smell will trigger a food memory. It can come from a suggestion or a tradition – that is the nature of food, its evocative.”
