Today was my 3rd time here, the food was freshly prepared and tasty. The service was very good and met the expectations for a restuarant at this level. Perfect business dinner hosted for an international guest.

We had never been to Johannesburg before and were just amazed by the Mall above which sits the Pigalle restaurant. The food was very good, the wines acceptable and not overpriced but the nicest thing was the friendly and highly competent waiter service. The ambiance was a bit Jo'burg business out for the evening. But otherwise fine

I booked a table at Pigalle as part of my beautiful wife's birthday celebrations and it was a very good decision! The service was friendly and professional. We ordered the Chateaubriand (for 2) and it was absolute delicious! Pigalle, located in the Michelangelo Towers, is a beautiful restaurant with a very relaxing atmosphere. The background music was stunning and just... More

Our grilled kingklip and Portuguese chicken were superb as were the pear/ almond salad, red rice, braised duck spring rolls and hot fudge ice cream sundae. Delicate flavors. Scrumptious food, excellent table service and restaurant ambience.

It's always a pleasant treat here but maybe that's because of the company at the table more than anything else. Pigalle offers a traditional menu, no avant-garde/gourmet food but we all enjoyed the food. A majority of the table rushed towards the prawns and they were delighted, the peri-peri sauce was the clincher. Chicken, beef and fish dishes were fair.... More

We went to Pigalle in Sandton for the first time on Wednesday evening with cousins from New York. It is a more fine dining option than other fish restaurants in Johannesburg. The welcome and the service was excellent. I shared a greek salad with my cousin and then had teriyaki salmon. I asked one of the managers / owners ?... More
