The quality of the food, service, preparation, delivery are all excellent. The wines nicely match the food - I recommend the paired Ostrich and Springbok steaks with the house Shiraz. However, the actual portion sizes were quite small - more vegetables could usefully be added. Also the noise levels were really too high for a nice restaurant. I can't say... More

Honestly one of the worst "top end" restaurants experienced. Overpriced, over cooked , no atmosphere, no taste and poor service.I ordered Risotto for a starter, Seared (more over cooked) tuna as a main and what was supposed to be a creme brule as a desert. Was so revolting I sent it back and got pavlova which was also just average... More

The breakfast did not have a wide selection of fruits The only thing that impressed me was how they make their omelettes. It's an art i tell you, they... More

Service was Central One was polite and efficient and prices, for a city hotel, were reasonable. I ordered soup and catch of the day, which came with a choice of french fries or rice and a side salad or vegetable. I opted for the fries and salad. The food was delicious and very nicely presented. Everything was really hot and... More

I ate in the Central One Restaurant multiple times during my three-night stay in the Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel. I really enjoyed the breakfast buffet here. There is a large variety, and I was always filled up when my breakfast was finished. One evening, I ate dinner here rather late, and I enjoyed that experience as well. The menu was... More

I have been staying at the Radisson Gautrain on numerous occasions, but have not had dinner in this restaurant for about 2 years. I decided to try it again. Service was friendly and fast. Ordered the rump steak - it was unfortunately very average. Not a great cut, not medium rare as requested and seemingly pan fried. Side salad was... More
