In line with Clico’s growth and expansion over the past nine years, our new restaurant was opened in October 2015 and the kitchen was refurbished and increased in size. Another new addition was the off-street parking area, accessible from Jellicoe Avenue. Clico has become renowned for being an intimate establishment, offering personalised service, and the Clico Restaurant retains this theme. The space is a unique architectural design where a special space has been created with a metal structure, triple volume ceilings and a flooding of natural light through the glass stack doors. This fine food restaurant has – in a short space of time – become a refreshing and welcome addition to the Johannesburg dining scene.
Comfortable upholstered chairs lead to relaxing visits, and large sliding doors allow for a semi alfresco atmosphere. The glass stack doors allow the flexibility to divide the restaurant into two sections of differing sizes in order to accommodate private meetings, functions and occasions.
Clico Restaurant is open to the public who, with our in-house guests, can enjoy our European-style cooking which is reflected in our tasting menus that change monthly.
Marnus Scholly is Clico’s Head Chef! Marnus is a graduate of The Chef School for Food and Wine where he completed a diploma in Food Preparation and Culinary arts. He started his career in the KwaZulu – Natal area after which he relocated to the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.
Clico Restaurant is popular for its fine dining; innovative gourmet fare with an emphasis on seasonal, local and organic products. Its seasonal menus can be adjusted according to personal dietary and allergies requirements and the food is complemented by elegant wines and perfect service in this bespoke and sophisticated fine dining restaurant.
“I am very respectful of the classic cuisine and love to embrace it with a bit of South African culture. I am passionate about teaching and sharing all knowledge across the board and the “team” is the core of what we do here at Clico and I aim to create an environment where we can all learn, create and develop”, said Marnus.
Our six course tasting menu is a popular choice for that very special occasion but for the ‘not so hungry’ we are open to our guests choosing individually priced dishes from our daily five course selection. For private functions, clients have the option of pre-selecting a set menu prior to their event or occasion. Alternatively clients can enjoy working with our Chef to create their own bespoke and tailor-made menu. Despite being known for its fine dining, Clico’s overnight and regular guests know that we understand and accommodate trending eating plans and individual dietary requirements and preferences. Besides a room service menu being available, enjoy our “open kitchen policy” and pop in to chat to Chef about special meal requests that will help you keep off the kilograms whilst travelling.
