A park bistro and botanical bar that serves delicious fresh healthy food and creative beverages for your family and friends, business executives and tourists alike.
We booked a table for 20 for a birthday lunch only to get to the restaurant and be told we only have 2 hours one hour into the lunch, we hadn't ordered mains yet before we were subtly kicked out. There's lots of good restaurants in Jozi, Truffles can miss me
Sensational service, delicious food, epic atmosphere. The best place for a date night! You'll never believe that it's in the heart of Sandton!
Beautiful venue and delicious cocktails. Service does lack a bit. We waited ages for food and even had a wrong meal arrive, after about an hour of waiting. This was also not at a busy period.
I do want to go back and give it another shot.
08.06.2019 A Celebration of life, Friendship and good food.
We joined Wenchy in celebrating her birthday breakfast at Truffles Bistro, and it was soo good to spend it with her.
Truffles is situated at Mushroom park, (for those that don’t know it’s where the Hyundai balloon use to be opposite the Radisson Sandton Hotel.), and that was inspiration for their name.
We sat alongside the living wall (with approx. 296 individual plants) with all the numerous plants adorned with bottles of Strongbow ciders before being treated to a fantastic breakfast. First up – bubbles and lots of it i.e. Boschendal Brut Bubbles to be exact as well as an English Cucumber at our seats ( will chat about that later)
If you didn’t know, Truffles is now open for Breakfast as well since the 1st June, and it seems to be a winner judging from how full the space was.
We got to indulge in the following
Chia seed breakfast - Coconut Milk soaked Chia Seeds, Blueberry compote, with shaved coconut, and toasted Pumpkin seeds
Salmon Scramble - scrambled eggs, smoked Atlantic Salmon, dill cream cheese, semi dried tomatoes and spring onion emulsion.
Mushrooms on Toast – grilled exotic mushrooms with parsley & Garlic, and Avo
A pile o’pancakes – fluffy American pancakes, maple syrup, Chantilly cream and marshmallow fluff.
Truffles Benedict – poached eggs, pulled glazed shortrib, black truffle Hollandaise, served on an English muffin.
Thereafter we got tucked into dessert which is the delicious Peppermint cake from Café Patisse. Wow, we had a proper treat today, the cake was delicious, and the flavour wasn't over powering.
And last but NOT least, we could NOT leave without trying the Twice fried Truffle Fries with Truffle Aioli. AMAZING it’s a must try.
Although we were celebrating the life of our fabulous Wenchy, we each got gifted a gorgeous AND personalized mug from her @african hips merchandise.
How lucky can a person get. If you also want a mug or maybe even some tshirts, check out her page.
Not forgetting it was also #WorldGinDay, so with Cucumber in hand, we headed to the bar to exchange it for a Hendricks G&T with some Strongbow Apple Ale. Refreshing and different which might not be to everyones taste.
As for great breakfast spot with outdoor seating, as well as a play area for the kiddies, this is definitely a new option to soak in some sunshine.

Since Truffles on the Park opened in February this year, I've been intrigued by this Insta-friendly restaurant. I got the opportunity to see if the beautiful photos match the menu offerings. I joined a handful of good friends to sample and savour Truffles' breakfast menu. Truffles on the Park started serving weekend breakfasts as from the 1st of June. When we popped in for breakfast on the 8th of June, the restaurant was packed. Now that already says a lot about the buzz and excitement this new hotspot generates.
We tasted bite-sized samples of the items available on the breakfast menu, including Chia Seed breakfast (vegan-friendly), salmon scramble, mushrooms on toast (with a dash of truffle mayonnaise), and my ultimate favourite - the Truffles benedict! This, ladies and gentlemen, is a thing of beauty! Poached eggs, pulled glazed short rib and truffle hollandaise - usually served on a croissant. Yes, it is as fantastic as it sounds! A must for truffle lovers. Of course Truffles' has got quite a few truffle-rich gems on the menu, and we just had to get a taste of the truffle parmesan fries. Twice fried potato fries with truffle aioli. Super delicious!
The venue itself is as gorgeous as their social media accounts promise it to be. Nearly 300 live plants, a beautiful and welcoming space. A real gem, right in the heart of Sandton! I spotted a few items on the menu (like the Wagyu steak sandwich), with my name on it! I will be back :)
• Ambience: Warm and welcoming, busy and buzzing - but not in the overly noisy sense.
• Service: Friendly, efficient
• Menu Variety: Good variety, accommodates most dietary requirements in my view
• Food: Anything with rich, beautiful truffles
Drinks: Full bar, good wine list, variety of beers (including local favourites like Soweto Gold) on tap
