Hennie Fisher

This is one of those well run, smart restaurants which offers good food, an impressive beverage list and great service, but sadly very little soul. It is well run and pleasant but could have been anywhere in the world, with no nod to its context.

Food
The menu is professionally divided into very specific sections: Salads & Soups which offers items such as red onion and ginger soup and a carb conscious oak smoked salmon salad with cucumber spaghetti, caper berry and mustard greens. Hot starters include some delicious fish cakes, followed by a section called High Seas with pan-fried halibut, monkfish and seafood risotto. The section called ‘Signature’ dishes includes quail crown, ostrich filler, beef tournedos and a Paradise fillet with garlic snails, prawns, muesli powder, exotic mushrooms and port jus. Pear Malva pudding and a Lindt fondant are examples of what can be found on the dessert menu.

Drinks
Even though two separate wines by the glass was out of stock, the manager did offer an alternative – the wine list is perhaps too large, so that such things happen. The international wines include wines from Argentina, Germany and Spain, and some interesting SA wines, such as Crystallum The Agnes Chardonnay and David Sadie Aristargos.

Service
Even though service is attentive, efficient, polite and well trained, it lacked warmth and immediacy.

Ambience
The lighting is slightly ineffective, making it difficult to decipher the menu, despite an eye-catching modern chandelier in the main seating area. Overall the restaurant is well-mannered and geared for a clientele with expense accounts. The highlight that saves the restaurant from total blandness is the live entertainment from a fabulous solo singer that can make any night light up. Upstairs they also have a smoking section as well as some function and/or private rooms.

Best for...
Entertaining clients.

    Rockefeller oysters,the best we have ever had, perfectly done steak, excellent flavor combinations, pork belly & scallops really good service. Beautiful space, elegant.
    We enjoyed the whole expierence. The waitor was well informed with the specials and the wine recomendations were spot on. The live music was just the right volume to be able to have a conversation. We had a variety of dishes and they were all delicious.
