It's no wonder Café del Sol wins awards year after year. The food, presentation, service and attention to detail are what lies behind their continued success. The prices are not cheap, but match the quality. Last night my wife had fried calamari which was delicious, while my penne with Neapolitana sauce was a triumph. On being informed it was my wife's birthday, the charming maître'd organized a complimentary desert for her, plus lemoncellos - a nice touch. This is one of Jo'burg's more popular restaurants , so you are advised to book. A great dining experience, and a great place to celebrate a special occasion.

Love this restaurant!!! Great service and amazing food with a wine list that doesn't disappoint. Wines are a bit dear but there are choices if you don't want to break the bank. Had a wonderful time and will be back soon.

Every time I have been there, I have always been treated to amazing food. The owners are fantastic and make you feel like you are in their own house rather than a restaurant.

Always a pleasure eating here and is just hidden away for a nice quiet evening if you want a romantic place.
