Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Johannesburg

La Belle Terrasse
Sunday brunch is something of an institution at La Belle Terrasse, best enjoyed on its gorgeous al fresco terrace.
Wombles
Wombles has nothing to do with the Wombles of Wimbledon, but has everything to do with steaks so good they could turn a vegetarian into a blood-hungry carnivore.
Mosaic
Recently declared the best restaurant in South Africa, it's not hard to see why getting a reservation of Mosaic is notoriously difficult.
The Grillhouse
The Grillhouse does exactly what is says on the tin - grills a sumptuous selection of steaks, ribs, chicken and fish. And, by God, does it grill them well.
Wang Thai
Just because you're not in Thailand it doesn't mean you don't occasional fancy fabulous Thai fare, which is where Wang Thai steps in to satisfy one's cravings of the Asian persuasion.
The Saxon
A fabulous fusion of African and Mediterranean menus, The Saxon hits the nail on the head. Hard.
Turn ‘n’ Tender
Vegetarians not welcome at this bloodthirsty, meat-loving institution.
Ghazal
Incredible Indian cuisine is served up in style at Ghazal, which also offers delivery direct to hotel rooms for the truly lazy.
The Baron Sandown
With lipsmackingly good meat dishes, it's not hard to see why this vibrant restaurant is extremely popular with carnivorous local businessmen.
Thomas Maxwell
New York, New York - only in Jo'burg. What's not to love about this bistro, inspired by the Big Apple?
Fishmonger
Fabulous fish and sumptuous seafood is Fishmonger's speciality, which is why its reservations book is fit-to-bursting any given day of the week.
Louis XVI
French cuisine presented in a room akin to Elton John's very own boudoir.
Fino
Fine dining can be found at Fino, which offers sumptuous Spanish fare and chic Mediterranean style in equal measures.
