• If you’re visiting Joburg, or just looking for a new lunch spot among the array of Rosebank restaurants, look no further than Clico Boutique hotel in Rosebank! As a foodie who has trawled across the city for the perfect quiet spot to grab a good bottle of wine and eat phenomenal food, you might imagine my excitement when I discovered my new favorite lunchtime affair at one of the top Rosebank restaurants, with live jazz to complement!

    Nestled in the heart of Rosebank’s leafy suburbs, Clico is a small and intimate boutique hotel and restaurant boasting an incredible wine list and seasonally inspired menus created by head chef Dario De Angeli.

    Step into a French inspired wonderland as you arrive at Clico, guided by friendly staff who are attentive and determined to wine – I mean win! –over your smile.

    Pick from a vino menu that will make you swoon, or marvel at the amazing ability that all Clico staff possess – making a killer mocktail on the spot, for a lady who “isn’t quite feeling wine right now…”  Not feeling like wine!? I know, but oh boy, I wasn’t disappointed.

    When it comes to food, Chef De Angeli has a magic touch. Your senses will be enveloped by the phenomenal combination of texture, flavour, and artistry. You’ll almost feel bad for cutting into your beautifully presented meal, but that feeling of regret won’t last for long, as your very first bite will transport you into new foodie dimensions.

    Have I tempted you to make your booking yet? I haven’t even mentioned my favourite part! On the last Sunday of every month, Clico hosts a jazz lunch, where you’ll be treated to a live jazz set by seasoned musicians as you munch down on magic. Pair that with your favourite glass of wine, dessert and your favourite people in tow, and you’ve got one magnificent Sunday afternoon!
