Chez Girard is an absolute gem, the food is fantastic! You are welcomed with a glass of wine and fresh baguette, and treated to the chef's personal charm as he visits each table to chat and relay the menu for the evening. We were a party of 6 so we were able to taste a variety of dishes and each... More

Chez Girard is now a small restaurant which thrives on the owner's personal touch. Regulars are greeted and welcomed personally by Girard. There is always a friendly buzz. A welcoming glass of wine and baguette find you chatting away until the waiter or Girard take your drinks order. After a suitable pause, Girard runs through the regular menu adding all... More

Welcomed to Chez Girard with a drink which consisted of white wine and strawberry liqueur, plus a fresh French baguette and butter for the table. The dinner menu starters were avocado, feta and bacon, snails, fresh mussels with white wine and cream, and pawpaw and prawn salad. Serving sizes are generous too. Main courses ranged from chateaubriand with pepper and... More

We've be going to Chez Girard for a long time and it never disappoints.You go knowing you are going to have a great meal in a lovely restaurant. Last week was no exception. The food... More

Christiaan's hospitality is out of this world. He goes out of his way to stop past every table to ensure that he has explained all the dishes, the specialties and the best pairings. The food is spectacular and the atmosphere is very quaint.

Met a friend for brunch on Saturday at Chez Girard. Christian provides a really personal touch, coming out to greet guests personally and ensure they are served speedily. His staff are friendly and helpful, but your food gets served by the chef himself. Delicious food, relaxing atosphere and an attentive host! What more can one ask for?

This has to be one of the best restaurants in Bryanston/Sandton - the food is simply awesome, the regular menu covers all tastes with specials of the day complimenting the menu, I had the calves liver with mash and vegetables, everything done to perfection and the flavors were simply brilliant.
