My wife and I enjoyed a dinner on Saturday night at Luce. The service was sporadic, the food was OK. The restaurant was very quiet. Cost was R900 for entree, mains and a shared dessert with 2 glasses of wine.

Part of Luce's concept is that they offer food on platters from which patrons help themselves, thus creating a family style experience. We had their Italian style lunches (part of the business meetings) as well as the dinner and it added nicely to the team...More

I stayed at the hotel for some weeks and ate here on several occasions. They serve some excellent Italian and Japanese food. The Japanese food is prepared in the dining room. They serve some fine priced wines.
