If you are not entertaining for business Wombles is a restaurant for those special occasions. It has lost some of its atmosphere and it has aspects of an aircraft hanger in places. The service is as impeccable as ever but ever so slightly impersonal. The food was excellent and the choice superb.

Yay! Wombles has moved to Bryanston. Great food as always. Decor beautiful. Service perfect. I have always enjoyed Wombles and wondered if they would be able to reproduce what they were doing at their old venue so we booked for Sunday lunch. I was so impressed. In fact I think they are now even better than they were. Well done... More

Since they have moved it became a lot more accessible from the Northern Suburbs. The new space is open and it should be great in summer when they can open the windows on the deck area. The staff is well trained, and friendly. The menu offers some interesting options and their specials are definitely worth a try. We had the... More

Overpriced for very normal food. Staff are obtrusive, we won't rush back very disappointing. Rather go to The Local Grill over the road.

Clearly survived and thrives on the move from Parkhurst to Sandton. Bookings seem to stretch well into the future, so make sure you catch a table early! As before great food, great service, great Johannesburg 'game lodge' experience.

I have been to Wombles several times both in Parktown and their new venue in Bryanston and have never been disappointed. Its unique appeal is to be able to offer that 'special' occasion with grace and a notable absence of pretension. It's atmosphere being faintly reminiscent of a colonial past just adds to the occasion. The menu is uncomplicated and... More

It is no wonder this restaurant is top of the rankings in greater Johannesburg. The service is at another level compared to any other restaurant in Johannesburg. I had a steak and it was amazing. The side orders are brought to you separately and dished up for you by a waiter, which was a nice touch. The restaurant is also... More

Eveything about Wombles is 1st class. From the service and friendliness of the staff to easily one of the best meals I've had in a long time. I had the calamari starter (which was full of zesty lemon flavour) and the lamb shank (which melted off the bone) as my main. It was an evening well spent! Well done to... More
