The Lonehill Waterfront

Joburg residents are now spoilt for choice with 2 new restaurants, a craft beer bar and delicatessen all under one banner, officially opening at Lonehill Shopping Centre on Lonehill Boulevard on Saturday 24 October 2015.

Nestled on a picturesque lake with an extensive deck as well as indoor area, Antonnio’s Italian Kitchen promises a passion for authentic Italian food, made by hand, just like Antonnio’s mamma used to, will be available at this new venue. Their mantra is “No frill, no fuss, hearty cooking” – truly Italian made by real South Africans.

A wide variety of delicious menu items are offered, from homemade pasta to pizzas prepared in their woodburning oven to burgers and salads for the health conscious, there’s something for everyone. Children are also encouraged to “make their own pizzas”, making this an ideal venue for the whole family.

Antonnio’s Italian Kitchen is open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Let’s Brew is the ideal spot to try a variety of craft beers on tap, as well as extensive “regular” bar drinks. With its rustic décor and stunning views of the lake, it’s a great place to unwind and enjoy delectable craft beers with friends or work colleagues. These craft beers are brewed in association with BlackHorse Breweries in Magaliesburg,

For those sports fans, there are TV screens all around to enjoy the current main sporting events. There’s also a separate area with a big screen for those wanting to book bigger private parties for specific events or informal seminars with a difference.

Let’s Brew also offers a mouthwatering menu including Peppadew Chicken, Irish Ale Curry, Dop ‘n Chop and Drunken Boerie Sliders being just some of the popular items available.

Let’s Meat is THE best place to head to for the most succulent meal option you can find. A diverse range of steaks and burgers are their specialty but don’t rule out the scrumptious chicken and fish options, or even eisbein and homemade lamb potjie.

Meals are freshly prepared making whatever you order just melt in your mouth. The very best ingredients are used and all meals are prepared with traditional love and care.

Let’s Deli is a one-stop shop to stock up on THE BEST quality deli and farm store-type items to take home and enjoy long after your experience at any of the restaurants is over. While you shop, watch fresh pasta being made and enjoy the aromas of fresh baked breads.

Let’s Deli offer an array of products from cheeses to baked goods to freshly cut meats, pasta and even a Banting section for those opting for a healthier lifestyle. It’s also interesting to realize that all these items are then used within the three restaurants on site, making this rather a unique experience for all who visit.

Let’s Deli is open from 8 am – 7 pm Monday to Friday, 8 am – 4 pm Saturdays and Sundays.

Parents with young children will be delighted to know that there’s an extensive Children’s Play Area available for all patrons visiting these various venues. Child minders will watch over your children while you have the chance to unwind and “chill” while hearing your children’s laughter either on the bridge, climbing inside the castle, playing in the sandpit or riding the bicycles provided around the cycle road track.

The area has already become charmingly known as “Lonehill Waterfront” by guests who have been part of the “dry run” before official opening to iron out teething problems – a name owner Charl Potgieter is happy to encourage, as part of the reason for taking on this enormous venture was his dream to establish a mini Waterfront in this beautiful spot in Lonehill.

Says co-owner Charl Potgieter: “How exciting it is to bring these brands to Lonehill. This is a passion not a job for us, we get up in the morning to make sure the guests have the best food, best service and an all round fantastic experience”.

He continues; “It was my vision to establish a great restaurant and entertainment area where you could shop for farm-style meat and ingredients at the Deli, where the kids can play in a fun, safe and exciting environment while the parents can have a light meal or a big meal while looking at a beautiful view – not over a parking lot or in a mall. You can find any kind of meal here with Let’s Meat offering a different menu option as well.”

He concludes; “I wanted to create something tranquil in the heart of the hustle and bustle of the Northern Suburbs. We have a beautiful view. Now to start welcoming the Jozi patrons!”

Saturday 24 October marks official launch day, and then all the venues are open for business!
