The View Restaurant in JHB

For my birthday yesterday I was treated for dinner at The View, one of the five restaurants at the iconic Four Seasons Hotel  The Westcliff in Johannesburg. This stylish urban resort, located on a hillside with panoramic views across the Johannesburg Zoo and the prestigious neighbourhoods of The Parks, the Hotel is still conveniently close to business, culture, shopping and leisure activities.

The View Restaurant is known for its urban chic design and indoor-outdoor atmosphere. It offers delectable contemporary fare, from its prime hilltop location and has sweeping views of vibrant Johannesburg. You can also turn your attention to the action in the show kitchen as their expert chefs’ grill, sauté or simmer every delicious dishes. View is open Wednesday through Sunday for breakfast and dinner, we went there on a Thursday night. Great venue, food out of this world and fantastic service by our waiter. This was the perfect venue to celebrate my 35th birtday.

Just a tip though, If you can book for breakfast or lunch do it as “The View”will be much better.
