Paddi Clay

A compact menu of seasonally appropriate food awaits you on the á la carte dinner menu. Everything is cooked with care and beautifully plated. Expect starters such as gravlax or a classic duck terrine offset with droplets of unusual tonka bean mayonnaise. Mains include succulent tranches of pork belly partnered with lentils, a sprinkle of dukkah spice and curlicues of crackling; moist braised lamb shoulder with slivers of dried olive; and the vegetarian buckwheat-and-mushroom broth with wild mushrooms, noodles and bok choy.

End the meal with bread-and-butter pudding topped with chai mascarpone, smoked cardamom ice cream and a perfect miniscule hot cross bun macaron.

Expect a creative selection of unusual high-end local varietals and vintages. There are recommended wine pairings for every stage of the meal.

Personalised, knowledgeable and unobtrusive. You’ll be asked for any dietary preferences when you book and for your online feedback afterwards.

There’s a sophisticated neutral interior with a fire for cold nights, and large doors opening onto a small walled garden for daytime dining. Comfortable upholstered seating encourages relaxed dining and total food appreciation.

On the last Sunday of every month, book for live jazz and a casual lunch.

    Amazing romantic place, I extremely enjoyed there food. They take great care of u and ensure that u have the absolute top notch experience.
    Great service. The food was very well made, but not particularly exciting.
    Clico is a beautiful boutique hotel and their restaurant offers contemporary food. The decor is artfully done and understated. The service is polished and elegant yet still friendly and warm. Despite the location (very close to a main-ish road), the restaurant is an oasis of calm. The food was good, plated beautifully and enjoyable. But not worth the price you pay (hence the 4 stars and not 5). As much as we enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing evening with Clico, we did feel that their food game could have been better considering the price. They have a large, unusual selection of beverages and wine pairing is recommended. You can also book in on Sundays for a casual lunch with live jazz. We haven't done so yet but maybe we'll save that for our next visit!
    Clico Restaurant is one of out favourites in Jozi. Always fabulous food, plated beautifully and exceptional service. Most often we choose their tasting menu - outstanding flavours, textures and presentation. John has been our server many times and he's a delightful addition to our evenings there.
    Superb experience! Our first time on this continent and first Christmas away from family called for a special evening and Clico surpassed our expectations. The lovely 'indoor/outdoor' garden setting, 4 perfectly prepared and presented courses (both my and my husband's beef 'done-ness' was precisely as we wanted) including a few wonderful taste combination surprises) , friendly unhurried service, excellent wine pairings and a marvellous 10 yr old brandy we lingered over, inhaling before actually imbibing. Staff were SO accommodating - a photo taken for our Toronto families, wine refills, hailing a cab for us - but since we had no local currency yet, a chef actually drove us to our hotel!. Thank you, Clico, for a "Christmas to remember" for we wayfarers just passing through....and lucky locals: this is a "must" to experience!
