Cafe Del Sol serves arguably the best Italian food in Johannesburg! Unassuming surroundings contrast with sublime sophistication on the inside. We've been loyal customers for over 6 years and have to stop ourselves from going nowhere else.

I last visited 5months ago, and prior to that I've visited the restaurant frequently. I must say that every visit was a delight and the quality of food & wine constant as expected from such an established restaurant.

Great service, food good and beautiful decor. The menu has good choices of pasta, salads and light meals. It's great for a treat as the prices are somewhat pricey. But as they say 'Ce'st la vie'. Worth having a meal here though.

Went to Cafe Del Sol Classico in Olivedale for pre-birthday celebrations and it did not disappoint! Top notch service. Food was excellent. I had the calamari limoncello and my partner had the fillet. Both meals were well cooked and delicious. Well priced for the quality you get. Will definitely be back.

Classy and elegant setting, with great food and excellent service. Although they had run out of one of the specials they recommended, so get there early. Overall very pleased.

Sat outside on a pleasant Saturday afternoon for an excellent lunch. The plants help you forget that you are in an aged strip mall and it was a nice pavement experience. Service was excellent and humorous.... Food - extremely good - everyone enjoyed every course Highly recommended

We had dinner at Cafe del Sol - a lovely restaurant with a great ambiance, friendly staff and great food. The menu offers a good variety and food is fresh and tasty. Make sure you reserve a table before you go as the restaurant was packed, even on a weeknight. I had the chicken roulade with salad; one of the... More
