Last weekend I visited Eclipse Restaurant in Hotel Sky, Sandton. They offer special event evenings which run from Thursday to Saturday. You’re treated to not only a fabulous three course meal but also a show. The show comprises a mini theatrical production showcasing talented actors, singers, dancers and even an aerial artist.

I arrived at Eclipse and was welcomed with a lovely fruity alcoholic beverage before being seated. The restaurant offers a three course meal with a choice between four starters and mains as well as three desserts. I opted for the grilled stuffed squid starter. The squid was perfectly cooked and stuffed with roasted tomatoes, feta, basil and baby spinach served with a herb dressing and refreshing grilled baby marrow salsa – a lovely start to the evening. I had the pork belly as my main meal and what a great choice that was. The pork was fantastically prepared showcasing a delicious crispy exterior (got to love that crackling). It was served alongside red cabbage, a bacon croquette, tender stem broccoli, baby carrots, apple chip and the most delicious apple and burnt honey jus. This was certainly the standout meal of the evening.

For dessert I selected the ‘textures of chocolate’ comprising barbeque Swiss meringue, flourless chocolate sponge cake, chocolate caviar, aerated white chocolate, candid dehydrated red rose petals, milk chocolate sorbet and fresh strawberries. The sponge cake was a little dry however, overall, it was still a lovely and tasty dessert.

The combined dinner and show was such a unique and memorable experience. The performers of the show were brilliant and highly entertaining. The service was great and you couldn’t ask for a more fabulous setting than Hotel Sky. If you’re looking to have some fun and enjoy a different kind of dinner outing, I’d highly recommend Eclipse Restaurant.
