What 28 people say about Mosaic at the Orient
I enjoyed every single minute of my experience at Restaurant Mosaic. Chantel is an artist and her food is strange and weird and wonderful! Moses the sommelier is an absolute genius when it comes to wine pairing. The service was impeccable and a delightful evening was had.
Eating at Mosiac really is a food lovers dream. The attention to detail is world class. The service is impeccable and the food is sublime. You always leave feeling like you were genuinely spoilt. Will go back as often as possible.
Not even load shedding could ruin our lunch. Presentation was perfect and food was exquisite! Will definitely be back.

Luckily we got a seat at my foodie fantasy place Restaurant Mosaic at the Orient. We had Chef Chantel’s awesome food. It is an absolute feast. An incredible food journey. All the senses are engaged. Picture perfect food, pops of flavor. Some light and fresh, others deep, earthy and satisfying. The thought put into each dish, the execution of that idea resulting in a tasting sensation makes it clear that Chef Chantel loves what she is doing. Pairing bread and butter takes the journey to another level.The non alcoholic pairing is such a treat. It is an absolute treat to eat here. Service and ambiance on point.
Lunch @ Mosaic was an incredible experience. Thank you to Chantal, her mum and all the staff at The Orient. Food was amazing and we were made to feel super special. Definitely recommended as BEST restaurant for restaurant week!
About Mosaic at the Orient
Having travelled the world, filling several passports in the process, Chantel found her second home in Paris where she fell in love with the Belle Epoque Restaurants such as Le Grand Colbert, Vaganende and La Fermette Marbeuf. When asked how she wanted to decorate Restaurant Mosaic, her choice was easy – in the Art Nouveau style. Renowned South African Impressionist artists and interior decorators were commissioned to step back in time to the romantic early 1900s to create a restaurant that was both romantic and unique. It has an intimate feel with booth-type seats and two private dining rooms.
When the restaurant is open, award-winning chef Chantel Dartnall is always in attendance and always meets the diners to explain the menu and answer questions. "Over the years I have experimented with so many different taste sensations that I have discovered the universal truth. There are only a few basic fundamentals when it comes to being a chef – passion, consistency and simplicity. The one thing that will make me go back to a restaurant is knowing that you can have that same gastronomical experience again. It may not be exactly the same dish, but the quality is unchanged. Consistency is the cornerstone of Restaurant Mosaic."
"My passion for the culinary arts is to involve all the senses and to transform the act of eating into a sensual experience. I want to captivate the person eating the food I have prepared with flavour, texture, beauty and elegance. This is why I am always there and in charge when the restaurant is open."
