The Birdcage


This hidden jewel, nestled in a magical garden setting, is flanked by character laden architecture, tranquil gardens and soothing water fountains.

The décor performs a bold and eclectic mix of emotions, brimming with a collection of vintage birdcages, art deco mirrors and antique Shanghai prints that compliment the elegant crystal chandeliers and unique ambiance.

The menu captures a sensational culinary experience. The Birdcage was voted one of South Africa’s top restaurants. Using seasonal ingredients in the wide array of dishes, diners peruse dazzling food choices and decadent cakes with signature high teas taking the ultimate indulgence.

Breakfasts wets the appetite with popular eggs Benedict, crunchy Thai salad with papaya and peanut brittle for lunch and melt in the middle hot chocolate pudding topped off by an aromatic ‘Bean There’ fair trade coffee.

Weekend celebrates festive harvest tables brimming with salads, pastas, tarts, cakes and languid afternoons indulging in signature high teas.

The Birdcage is tucked away under towering trees; a stones throw from the bustling suburb of Jan Smuts on the corner of Cotswold Drive, Johannesburg.
