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."

"Wow....Just wow!"

food: 10 service: 10 ambience: 10
From the moment I got confirmation that we be going to Mosaic for lunch the excitement started! The spare no detail in making you feel like you are a special guest coming to visit. I would have thought that being restaurant week guests we would not have got the whole "mosaic" wrong I was! Chantel Dartnall herself came to tantilize our taste buds explaining the details of her menu. We were expecting a four course meal.....well the surprise course just kept coming... blowing our minds with flavors (rocket lemonade pallet cleanser) and stretching our adventurous sides. Melt in your mouth food with very generous portions! Not to mention the incredible artwork on the plate. Mosaic is not a place you go to have a fancy meal...... its a place you go to let your imagination mingle with your taste buds and explore places they have never been. I cant wait to go back to Mosaic to experience more of its magic! Wow!!! Just wow

"Restaurant Week - The Orient"

This was my first visit to the Orient and the Mosaic restaurant for a tasting menu. It was a delightful experience, a beautiful place in an oasis in the middle of nowhere! The food was sublime, service superb and a definite invitation to visit again. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.

"An Oasis of Good Taste"

Driving through bumpy roads and not really knowing what we will find at the end of it, made the experience even more stunning ! The Orient is a magic place that mixes the Oriental opulence with the South-African simplicity and elegance, blending perfectly into the natural environment where birds and tortoises and Nyalas surprise you while walking through the gardens. And then discovering Mosaic ... was the most enchanting tasting experience we've had, where each and every dish was a work of art, enchanting our palate up to a Wow effect !!! The whole ambient was elegant but relaxed and made our visit a memorable 7* experience worth repeating and recommending !

"A meal to remember"

food: 10 service: 10 ambience: 10
We were treated to excellent service and the most amazing food. You were made to feel as though you were the only guests with the personal attention received. I liked that the chef came to the table to welcome us and to tell us about the menu. The food was sublime. Each course a masterpiece . The wine list is extensive and caters to everyone's pocket. We had a De Grendal rose for R70. Unbelievable! Have paid significantly more for this wine at other restaurants. Highly, highly recommend Mosaic.
