For the classiest dinner in town, head to Five Hundred at the Saxon Hotel in Sandton, South Africa, headed by award-winning Chef Dave Higgs.
You’ll be chauffeured from the parkade to the hotel lobby in a 5-series BMW, where you’ll be greeted by name (reservation required at least 2 weeks in advance), and escorted to this exclusive restaurant. An elegant restaurant offering innovative take on contemporary cuisine, it’s pricey but unforgettable.
Although there’s outstanding technique and presentation on show here, it’s produce-driven menu is all about allowing individual ingredients to shine, and giving diners a fine time. It’s not wacky or concept-driven – it’s delicious food taken to a new level.
Celebrated for its multi-sensory experience, five hundred guides the guests on an interactive experiential journey of the senses.
The Chefs pour all their passion, expertise and creativity into five hundred. For them the highlight is creating a menu that reflects their emotions, passions and inspired ideas, all with an effortless simplicity.
Sourcing only the freshest handpicked seasonal ingredients from the Saxon vegetable garden and pairing them with specialized artisan produce, the menu is a showcase of superior fragrance and flavor. Individually presented to the guests by the Chefs and the Sommeliers, every course is paired with the finest local and international wines.
Overlooking the evening skyline, five hundred reflects the shimmering light. The art on the walls is echoed in the palette on the table, all painting an evening not to be forgotten.
