Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Johannesburg

The Attic
La Belle Terrasse
Sunday brunch is something of an institution at La Belle Terrasse, best enjoyed on its gorgeous al fresco terrace.
Moyo
Offering an authentic 'African' dining experience, Moyo is significantly more stylish than you might expect for a venue hinged around a gimmick.
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.
Angies
Comfort food classics served up on piled-high plates in a warm and intimate setting.
Casalinga
Who said romance was dead? Good food, good wine and a good setting make this the perfect place for a romantic meal for two. All you need to provide is the good company.
Mosaic
Recently declared the best restaurant in South Africa, it's not hard to see why getting a reservation of Mosaic is notoriously difficult.
Roots
A blast from the fashion past, perhaps. But, really, who wouldn't love a little beaver on their clothes.
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.
Faff
Faff doesn't, er, faff about with a wonderfully colourful and varied menu supported by an extensive drinks list.
The Saxon
A fabulous fusion of African and Mediterranean menus, The Saxon hits the nail on the head. Hard.
Beirut
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.
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.
Plaka
The cuisine on offer at Plaka more than makes up for its noisy shopping centre surroundings.
Fino
Fine dining can be found at Fino, which offers sumptuous Spanish fare and chic Mediterranean style in equal measures.
Assaggi
Assaggi is a relaxed family-run Italian establishment just like momma used to make-a, with great food and a really friendly down-to-earth atmosphere
