It is one of those places that you would never thought of stopping by. I do love art but have seldom taken the effort to stop at a gallery to admire. Alice art is far more than just a gallery. The restaurant offer breakfast and light meals during the day of excellent quality , great service and the most relaxing... More

This is a small but pleasant coffee shop right inside the art gallery. While waiting for our refreshments we were able to browse through the beautiful works of art and imagine owning those we really liked. The waitron was friendly and the service was good. The cake wasn't spectacular but tasted fine. When we were finished we took a stroll... More

We visited with friends, just for coffee and cakes. The service was brisk and the quality of our snacks and hot drinks were of a good standard. The complete experience was enhanced as there was an artist in residence putting finishing touches to her lovely painting of roses. So interesting to see an expert at work. Well worth a visit.

The setting is beautiful but unfortunately the food and the service were lacking. It took ages to be served our food and it was nothing to write home about, a very ordinary meal.

Visited this spot 3 weeks ago and it was an excellent place to spend a light lunch at. The lady who assisted us was friendly and accommodating, even making sure we could see our children nicely as they were playing in the play area. I ordered a quiche and my husband a spud. I found the quiche a bit bland... More

We were looking for a place to have a light lunch with my mom who is in a wheelchair. This was a perfect match. Despite showing up as expensive in Tripadviser, the prices are actually very reasonable. Food was excellent and great atmosphere.

I live in Cape Town and travel to Johannesburg often - via Lanseria Airport. The reason for this is that I can make sure I can stop for breakfast at Alice Art Gallery Restaurant. Why - because they make the best "pap, sous en wors" in Johannesburg. This South African meal is not offered by many restaurants, let alone for... More
