Style: Business Lunch & Dinner in Johannesburg
South Africans tend not to entertain business clients on the weekends. But during the week, Moyo, in Melrose Arch, is a top corporate dining spot; set over five levels —a favorite of Mvelaphanda Group founder Tokyo Sexwale and many other anti-apartheid fighters–turned-millionaires; have a seat outside, but don’t hesitate to walk through the massive interior for a stop at the cigar or wine bar; and…decide ahead of time whether you’ll allow one of the feather-adorned waitresses to paint your face with African designs; this lush, Afro-hip restaurant is a hit with out-of-town celebrities: Avril Lavigne and Annie Lennox dine here, and Will Smith once brought children from his former high school for a pan-African meal.

The Attic Restaurant
Style: Fusion Asian – French – Vegetarian
Bustling restaurant in the trendy Parkhurst district; there aren’t too many places where you can enjoy world class food in a convivial, eclectic and informal environment; After years spent in London, Edinburgh, Europe, America and Cape Town owners Tom Hughes and Martin Jakoby felt that there was a real gap in the Jozi market for the unpretentious – yet quality – establishment that are so favored overseas; the entire ethos behind this restaurant is to allow people to relax, unwind, and enjoy.

How would you describe Zietsies? It’s like having a fine dining experience at a friends house with breathtaking views of Jo’burg; watch chef-performer Elzabé Zietsman moving between the kitchen and the dining room in-between the starters and main courses – definitely a real happening! Great for a Sunday brunch: reservations are essential! And just in case, Zietsies is also a guesthouse…
