The Restaurant

The exciting addition to Clico was the new restaurant opened in October 2015. Off-street parking accessible from Jellicoe Avenue allows for easy access to Clico Restaurant. Clico has become renowned for being an intimate establishment, offering personalised service, and Clico Restaurant retains this theme. The space is a unique architectural design – a metal structure, triple volume ceilings and a flooding of natural light through the glass stack doors.  This refined food restaurant has in a short space of time become a refreshing and welcome addition to the Johannesburg dining scene.

 

Comfortable upholstered chairs lead to relaxing visits, and large sliding doors allow for a semi alfresco atmosphere. The glass stack doors allow the flexibility to divide the restaurant into two sections of differing sizes in order to accommodate private meetings, functions and occasions.

 

Clico Restaurant is open to the public who, with hotel guests, can enjoy our European-style cooking which is reflected in our tasting menus that change seasonally.

 

Clico is proud to be a member of  the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, an International Association of Gastronomy that brings together enthusiasts who share the same values of quality, refined dining, the encouragement of the culinary arts and the pleasures of the table in the appreciation of fine cuisine.

Evening dining at the sophisticated Clico Restaurant is well known for tasting menus which offer innovative gourmet fare with an emphasis on seasonal, local and organic products. Each course is complemented by unique, local boutique wines and emphasis is placed on sleek service and meeting bespoke requests.

 

Our six course tasting menu is a popular choice for a great night out. For the ‘not so hungry’ we are open to our guests choosing from our a la carte menu.

 

Lunch is a more casual affair, ideal for time pressed business meetings or a catch up with friends over a glass of wine.

 

Any patron keen to enjoy the tasting menu experience at lunch time need only ask when making the reservation and our Chef and his team will ensure to cater to your needs. Clico’s menus can be adjusted according to personal dietary requirements.

HEAD CHEF

NEO MKHWANAZI

Clico, one of Joburg’s top-rated refined dining eateries, has named sous-chef Neo Mkhwanazi as its new Head Chef. Neo’s promotion comes after working in the Clico kitchen for less than a year and is testament to the hard work and dedication he has put into the role.

 

“I have been consistently impressed with Neo’s culinary skill and knack for flavours and have no doubt that under his guidance, this restaurant will continue to flourish and grow into one of the best refined dining establishments in South Africa,” says outgoing Head Chef Marnus Scholly.

 

Prior to joining Clico, Neo worked across a diverse range of hospitality leaders from the Liz MacGrath Collection in Hermanus, to the five-star kitchens of luxury bush lodges across the And Beyond and Shamwari portfolios.

Neo’s family and their passion for cooking was instrumental to building his career as a chef. From an early age, their celebration of ingredients that come straight from the land, has since been translated into his desire for sustainable produce sourced from smaller suppliers and farms.

 

Neo will be tapping into his wealth of experience to produce a range of locally inspired, French-style dishes for Clico Restaurant. When asked about his cooking philosophy, Neo brings it back to basics.

 

“I believe in food that is true, in a sense that it doesn’t destroy or take away. At Clico, we do locally sourced, sustainable, flavour-packed food – always identifiable in its simplicity. We consistently strive to keep our guests coming back by giving them a holistic, silver-service experience, paired with a taste sensation of classic dishes done with a local twist,” says Neo.
