Restaurant Mosaic at the Orient in Pretoria

About Rest Restaurant Mosaic at the Orient

Mosaic at the Orient
The Orient Boutique Hotel, Francolin Conservation Area, Crocodile River Valley , 0001 Pretoria

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."

I was lucky enough to get a reservation for restaurant week at Restaurant Mosaic @ The Orient. It was sublime. What an awesome way to spend a lazy Friday. We started with Champagne and the Bread and butter menu, a huge selection of freshly baked bread. The creamiest cauliflower soup I have ever had and Mom would be proud, I ate brussel sprouts. Then the awesome, delicious, savory dishes rolled out one sublime taste explosion after the other .My first taste of goat was meltingly tender. Loved each bite. Desert was a cosmic experience, visually and taste wise. The R400 restaurant week price tag an absolute bargain.

I have been wanting to visit restaurant Mosaic for literally years and I finally got my chance during restaurant week! The food was spectacular - tasty, filling and beautifully presented. The bread cart was a special surprise - over 9 different types of bread to choose from with 5 different butters. Each course was a delight and I will definitely be back.

"Exceptional is the Norm"

As always, outstanding cuisine with a poetic dimension. Sublime dishes, which vie in intensity and creativity, and exquisitely knowledgeable wine pairing by the sommelier. (Minor flaw: the robotic, dry presentation of each dishes by the waitresses.)

This restaurant is truly one of a kind. All the dishes always have a story behind it; and the taste experience is something that can't be described. There is a reason they are consistently rated as one of the best restaurants in the country.
