The search for good restaurants in a big city is a never-ending journey, fraught with love, danger, ecstasy and disappointment. If you have been disappointed and are looking to take your appetite elsewhere, we strongly suggest Rabbit in the Moon.
There is something of an Alice in Wonderland quality about Rabbit in the Moon. Although devoid of drug-induced literature, burrowing rodents or a nearby abyss, it does present a secret world that’s hidden in the corner of the Thrupps Centre, Illovo.
Inside, the literary theme continues. The colourful walls are adorned with portraits of many of the great writers and the walls, in turn, support a ceiling on which excerpts from famous literary works can be found. It’s good to know that should the dinnertime conversation get dull, you can always read the ceiling.
Inside, the quirky furniture and imaginative décor are matched only by the menu. The latter presents an impressive selection of meals, made from the freshest ingredients and served with aplomb- not to mention freshly baked bread.
If you are getting hungry just from reading this, we suggest contacting Rabbit in the Moon right now to make a reservation.Rabbit in the Moon Shop no. 5 198 Oxford Road Illovo (011) 447 6720
