• Indulge in an evening of delectable wining and dining in the heart of Gauteng. Welcoming warm summer nights, we are heading off to the pristine and upmarket Waterfall Corner this November for a host of diverse culinary excursions – each tailor-made to suit a different menu profile. Come and join us for a fun evening out on the town, exploring our way through four menu selections – one course at a time. It’s going to be delicious!

    Waterfall Corner, situated on the corners of Woodmead- and Waterfall Drive, is perfectly positioned at the gateway to the Waterfall City precinct in Midrand, Gauteng. Waterfall Corner features a piazza at its heart – a vibrant space buzzing with activity, creating a family-orientated shopping-, gastronomic- and relaxation destination. The centre is anchored by Checkers, Woolworths and Clicks. Added to this is a variety of select stores and facilities.

    Waterfall Corner is easily accessible to residents of Waterfall Hills and Waterfall Valley Mature Lifestyle estates, Waterfall Equestrian and Waterfall Country estates and Country Village. Restaurants include Life Grand Café, Mio Col’Cacchio, Monterey Seafood, Remo’s Maximilliano, The Hussar Grill, The Raj, Vovo Telo and Yamada Sushi to service the needs of the area’s high-end residential market.

    Monterey Seafood 

    At Monterey, making the finest seafood – from shellfish to sushi – is an art form. Not only does Monterey present the freshest, choice cuts of seafood, together with outstanding vintages in their cellar, but they also proudly prepare and cook all meals and accompaniments on site, using only top-grade produce. Enjoy quality and sophistication, along with a warm and welcoming reception!

    The Hussar Grill welcomes you to their multiple award-winning, premium grill room, where they are proud to offer a cut above the rest, including the best venison and beef cuts. Beef is wet-aged in cold rooms for up to 35 days, then brushed with their signature basting to deliver perfectly succulent grills for every guest, every time – making each bite at The Hussar Grill an experience to savour.

    Remo’s Maximilliano
