Owners description

LBV, which opened in December 2013, has become a Bryanston neighbourhood institution.

Since Chef's Darren O'Donovan & Lisa De Beer became partners in the business they have adopted the culture of the upmarket restaurant while incorporating their own fine dining experience to bring a truly unique offering to the JHB market… A la carte fine dining!

The South African born duo broadened their horizons after 5 years at the helm of Cube Tasting Kitchen with a worldwide culinary journey in which they discovered new techniques, trends and flavour combinations that you will find on the restaurant’s seasonal menu.

  • I'd never heard about LBV until my husband made a booking with them for Restaurant Week. Their food was out of this world! We had a set menu (as is standard with Restaurant Week bookings) and were blown away. I couldn't believe this place had been under our radar until now. The first thing you notice about LBV is how casual and relaxed the atmosphere is. There are no airs and graces when it comes to the staff, management or the chefs. They are eager to help and are happy to create beautiful food for their patrons. Their vegetarian selection is a little on the light side but whatever I could eat, was divine! Their prices are a little high but I think definitely worth it. They have created a beautiful, relaxed space for people to enjoy stellar food!

  • It deserves being rated amongst South Africa’s top restaurants. The food was divine and the service wonderful. The ambience wasn’t that great though the last time I was there; too quiet and empty.
