Wombles 88 Ho­bart Rd, Ho­bart Grove Shop­ping Cen­tre, Bryanston; 011 880 2470

A warm at­mos­phere and lodge-style decor make Wombles a true gem. The menu of­fers a wide ar­ray of dishes, but the meat dishes are the high­light here. Think beef stroganoff (R180) or steak tartare (R220) with clas­sic sides like roasted sweet pota­toes (R20).

Browns of Rivo­nia 21 Wes­sel Rd, Rivo­nia; 011 803 7533

This invit­ing old farm­house, with its warm decor and trade­mark wine bar­rels has been de­light­ing Joburg­ers for al­most 28 years, and it keeps go­ing strong with clas­sics like Os­trich Potjie (R155) and the soup of the day (R51). You’ll find plenty of com­fort food on the dessert menu, too – try the Sticky Tof­fee Pud­ding (R63).

Churchill’s Bar 60 Atholl Oak­lands Rd, Gal­le­ria Pi­azza, Mel­rose Arch; 011 684 1040

A nod to the old-world gen­tle­man’s club, Churchill’s Bar is a hip hang­out made for rel­ish­ing beau­ti­ful com­pany and a fire­side Glen­livet whiskey (from R50). Try the jalapeño pop­pers (R48) to warm up, and then move on to a main like lamb chops with mus­tard and herbs (R160). The deep­fried ice cream (R50) is fun and tasty.
