Gourmet Guide Description

Epicure Restaurant in central Sandton is drawing the crowds. The setting is opulent. Its big and beautiful. Start by sipping cocktails in the impressively stocked Epic Bar. Choose from a wide selection of rum, bubbly, local and international wines before moving into the chic dining area for what is sure to be a memorable meal, an entree into what makes the African culture beat. Chef patron Fathi ‘Coco Reinarhz built up a loyal following from early days at Ma Passion, then at Sel et Poivre, Le Petit Sel and at Le Sel @ The Cradle of Humankind. His previous restaurants always had a few African dishes on the menu. “When the time for change came I decided to go all-the-way African,” says Coco proudly. Cocos fan club is now loudly applauding Epicure Restaurant, where all dishes are African influenced. Family memories, travels and this talented chefs love affair with Africa are expressed on each plate. Dishes pay testament to his belief that when visitors come to Africa, they want to experience cuisine from this continent, not familiar food from their homes. Coco has a leaning to untraditional rather than trendy. Expect your taste buds to travel from north to south, east to west, expect the unexpected and know that he will celebrate each ingredient. Look out for the chargrilled whole fish served with cassava couscous and plantain banana. “The plantain banana is my favourite ingredient, it is so versatile – eaten ripe or deep-fried or boiled and mashed Congolese-style.” Its the ideal place for a business meeting, a get together for food-lovers or a romantic rendezvous over breakfast, lunch or dinner. “The most important ingredient in any dish is passion.” Chef patron Coco Reinarhz

    We love eating here, but we waited really long for our food this time, a little disappointed because it’s never been such a long wait.

    Was a great place for catching up with friends. Great menu. Was slightly disappointed that my meat was dead when I had specifically asked for medium. Other than that was awesome
