Read a few reviews and walked in to have breakfast, firstly the venue is right next to a busy road and takes away the garden setting that is being created. Service is attentive and cappuccino was good, ordered salmon and scrambled eggs which was expensive...More

Hi Jacques, thanks for taking the time to review Gia's and for the kind words regarding our service and cappuccino. Please note that salmon is expensive which in turn will affect my prices. The enormous slices of toast come from artisan bread which we order...More

Great place to sit outside in the garden for a leisurely breakfast. Good service and tasty breakfast served here. One can wander around the garden and the nursery.

Going to Gia's is a little bit like playing food Russian Roulette. One day you can go there, get excellent service and have a great meal (although it's never cheap). On other days, like today, the service will be terrible, and the food disappointing. I...More

We visit Gia's once every three months or so. The main attractions are the outdoor setting and service, plus the lack of urgency and general atmosphere. There are few places in Johannesburg where you can eat outdoors without gazing at a car park or other...More

We have a ladies lunch club that meets once a month for lunch on a Saturday. The theme for choosing the restaurant, is that it has to be in a garden setting - no parking lots or shopping malls. I google searched Gia's and we...More

A good breakfast with warm and friendly service. The setting in this tranquil nursery is relaxing and rewarding. A little on the expensive side.

This is what I got when I ordered scrambled eggs for breakfast this morning. A side plate of dry tasteless eggs, no toast, no garnish and nothing else on the plate. Very disappointed and unexpected given that we go there for breakfast every Sunday. Come...More
