Enjoy dinner and a show in true theatre-district style
There’s nothing to beat the sense of occasion of an outing to theatre, selecting your seats, buying your tickets, getting dressed up and deciding where to go for your pre-show dinner. The anticipation is almost as wonderful as the experience, made even more so when the quality of the show, the venue and the restaurant combine to deliver a complete package.
Montecasino has evolved into one of Gauteng’s prime ‘theatre districts’, with three theatres offering a wide variety of show genres, concerts, and both local and international productions.
The world-class Teatro, which this year again won the well-earned Best of Joburg Reader’s Choice Award for Best Theatre for the eighth consecutive year, and the Pieter Toerien Main Theatre and Studio Theatre.
A theatre district is typically surrounded by an abundance of restaurants, and Montecasino is no exception, with a vast variety of fine dining, casual dining and fast food options to cater for theatre-goers.
Options include those on the outdoor Piazza, where the Teatro takes centre stage, flanked by Col’Cacchio, and Milk & Honey, the recently-opened Hussar Grill and Ocean Basket. Aarya at SunSquare Montecasino hotel is one of the precinct’s three hotels that offer exceptional dining options, along with Punchinello’s at Southern Sun Montecasino and Medeo at the elegant Palazzo hotel.
New to Montecasino and located opposite the Pieter Toerien theatres is La Rosa Mexican Grille and Tequileria, which is rapidly proving to be a favourite for “exploding flavours, electric atmosphere, vibrant colours, festivities, and the magic of Mexico – promising an unforgettable experience.
The dining options go on, and include Italian, Thai, Greek, Chinese, Mediterranean, Japanese, Indian, tapas, family and more which guarantee that there’s something for every visitor to Montecasino.
Says Mike Page, General Manager of Montecasino, “An outing to the theatre is an experience that is enhanced by dining at a favourite restaurant or somewhere you’ve been dying to try, and at Montecasino there’s no shortage of quality options to choose from.”
