AfroDaddy Reviews The Kitchen at L’antico Giardino

Let’s face it: Johannesburg is not a pretty city. That was something that my family and I had to come to terms with as we journeyed across the city. That being said, we were enjoying our little holiday in the City of Gold. We had resigned ourselves to the brownness all around us… Until, on the final day, we made a stop at The Kitchen at L’antico Giardino.

In all honesty, we were as lost as any out-of-towners could be (thank goodness for Google Maps). So I couldn’t exactly tell you which area we were in exactly. (It’s in Lanseria – ed.) I am so glad that despite our lack of navigational skills we still managed to find The Kitchen! After driving up the long tree-lined driveway, we arrived at the actual restaurant. We were greeted by the friendly staff and were seated outside.

Sitting in the shade, surrounded by grass, trees and fountains, it is actually impossible not to start relaxing. The fact that this could happen despite the crazy toddlers who followed us everywhere we went (apparently that’s what they do when they are your sons) made this extra pleasing.

Once we consumed the caffeinated drinks… But before the meals arrived… I took The Kid and Boy2.0 for a little walk around the property.  The Kitchen at L’antico Giardino grounds have a vegetable patch, stables, and fountains… And a very interesting lady bug that I had to take a photo of.

The food was delicious, the staff and management were pleasant, and the surroundings were relaxing. If you live in Joburg, how many places can say that?

The Kitchen food content

“The Kitchen at L’antico Giardino in Lanseria is open on Saturdays and Sundays for breakfast and lunch. On the first Friday of every month, the Kitchen is open from 3pm to 6pm for afternoon drinks and snacks.

Following on from the forum’s extremely popular Farm to Table events, the focus for breakfast and lunch follows the same philosophy… Sit under the trees and enjoy local delicious, fresh food. It is on the cycle route towards the Cradle. A lovely outdoor option if you want to pop in after your morning ride. There is also ample space for kids to ride their bikes.” From The Forum Company website.
