The Radium Beer Hall in Orange Grove is a happening jazz bar and restaurant. The restaurant has live jazz bands playing on most days. The Radium is practically a tourist attraction and has a Joburg feel to it owing to its long history—it was started as a tearoom in 1929 and turned into a bar in 1944. The bar also serves snacks and spicy Portuguese food which you can enjoy on the long bar just like in the old days of mining!
Catz Pyjamas in Melville is a 24 hour Bistro that attracts a young crowd that is always hungry for its food and music! The bistro has a dance floor and great music and lights. Watch the beautiful sunrise over breakfast after a night of partying. The food served is affordable, especially the nachos. You could also try the sesame chicken in peanut sauce. Catz Pyjamas is famous for its cocktails and shooters and also has an extensive selection of wines.
Chef Robert Baxa spells magic with his culinary masterpieces at Les Délices de France, an elegantly designed French eatery in the heart of Joburg's Roodepoort town. A favorite among the city's European tourists, Les Délices has all the trappings of a quintessential French bistro tucked away somewhere in Paris. An enclosed patio adds to its jovial vibe. Soft lighting, rustic art pieces on its walls and synthetic tablecloths complete a warm atmosphere. Menu offers an eclectic mix of classic delicacies presented with a contemporary twist. For those seeking some adventure, the escargot (dish made of snail meat) and cuisses de grenouilles à La Provençale (frog's legs cooked in traditional style) are waiting to be devoured.
White upholstered dining areas beautifully blend with textured walls and white ceiling at Cafe Del Sol, a trendy Italian joint in the heart of Johannesburg. This Cafe Del Sol outlet is found at the bustling Olivedale Corner Shopping Centre and welcomes a mix of locals and tourists alike. A thoughtfully crafted menu introduces gourmands to the aromatic spices and herbs of Italy's Amalfi coast, Sicily and other regions. Apart from the regular pastas and pizzas, one also gets to devour delectable gnocchi, ravioli, lasagne and succulent seafood preparations. Go for the Porcini risotto, a heavenly dish made with pork fillet, truffle oil, peas, mushrooms and other peppery ingredients. Stuffed calamari also happens to be a favorite here, as food snobs simply love gorging on the calamaris bursting with capers, green olives, red pepper, chili and ricotta cheese.
Although minimalist, the décor at Beira Alta conveys a feeling of opulent reminiscence of the Palaçe De Pena, in Sintra, somewhat regal, a little decadent. The relaxed atmosphere is further enhanced by the selection of music, ranging from Portuguese to jazz and world music. A terrace is welcoming on pleasant evenings. The cuisine is traditional Portuguese, spicy though fortunately not always hot, made by chefs from the homeland. As can be expected, the selection of seafood and traditional dishes will satisfy even the most ardent Portuguese diner.
