I can see why there's been such a mixed response to this restaurant. Our experience was a mixed one. Firstly, the positives: My food was excellent. I had an italian sausage pasta that was decadently rich, with a luxurious umami that was intensely salty and meaty, evocative of the best of Italy. The decor is upmarket and attractive, with a pleasant ambiance despite the shopping centre location. The service is attentive and unobtrusive. One of my favourite little touches was that they kept refilling my glass of water, which is something one expects when dining abroad, but almost never happens in South Africa. The proprietor, which I recognised from Thomas Maxwell, came to give us the specials and I was pleased with the selection on the menu. The wine list is comprehensive and comes with write-ups and recommending pairings. On the negative side, my wife's salad was however a little disappointing, and her main meal was equally bland. The wine is generally a bit very expensive, and the meals are certainly on the pricey side as well. If you're cost averse, I'd recommend avoiding - the inconsistent quality of the food coupled with a premium cost means that if you end up getting something less than amazing you'll be somewhat upset. If you're prepared to give it a try, and don't mind paying a bit extra, it's worth checking out.

Had dinner on Sat night at Red Rabbit. Service was outstanding and wine list very comprehensive. Starters ordered - Seafood Bisque and Duck liver. Seafood Bisque was bland and didn't have enough flavour, duck liver was ok. Mains had rump steak which was delicious and perfectly cooked and salmon which was overcooked and not great. Dessert was good, lemon tart and creme brulee. Not bad but not outstanding.

Salt (Richmond Hill)
The food was great and the prices were very reasonable. I liked the laid back atmosphere.
