Having been a patron on Bistro Vine for many years, I was disappointed by the manager's pathetic apologies and total lack of interest in our patronage. He actually told us the kitchen was not willing to wait 10 minutes before bringing our main course and...More

This little restaurant is the perfect place in Joburg you consider yourself a "francophile!" We have eaten here quite a few times over the years and have never been disappointed. Its a true french bistro in every sense - chalkboard menus for the wine list...More
