The décor is reminiscent of the old school Balthazar restaurant in New York, and the dark wood panelling, mirrors and red upholstery, as well as the black and white checked floors and intricately pressed ceilings would find you thinking that you had indeed headed back in time to the 1920’s...

What can only be described as one of Sandton’s most well-known restaurants, the Maximillien is a stalwart of fine dining at its best. Floor to ceiling windows allow in soft natural light during the day and create a picturesque view for evening dining. Romantic candle light dinners setting the mood.

The deck area is superb for cocktail parties and events, with 180 degrees of sky scrapers and city lights with windows that open right up to give you the feeling of almost being suspended between the surrounding buildings.

Located in the bustling heart of Sandton, with easy access from Nelson Mandela Square and Sandton City, this is the place to go if you are looking for great food and attentive service.

Constantly evolving, the latest menu offers a variety of delicious and flavoursome meals, Chef Sylvester also asked his kitchen team for their input, so the menu is now an amalgamation of everyone’s favourites dish, Chef Sylvester taking clear pride and joy in every dish he creates is something to behold. He admits that he loves to make people happy, and he speaks through his food – when he sees people enjoying their meal and having a fantastic dining experience, it truly makes him happiest.

    This is such an amazing restaurant. The atmosphere, the food, the decor, the view, breathtaking. I had the privilege of proposing to my future wife here, and Maximillien staff made it a night that we will never forget.
