Johannesburg offers everything from pavement dining to five-star gourmet cuisine. Generally Thursday to Saturday nights require bookings and some restaurants close on Mondays. In summer book an outdoor table to appreciate the fine weather. With South African wines being as good as they are it is worth taking your own bottle to a restaurant. Most will charge a reasonable corkage fee (average R50). Most restaurants take credit cards – Visa and Mastercard are the most widely accepted. Note that from mid-December to early January most Joburgers decamp to the coast for the holidays and many restaurants in the city close during this period.
