The Ivy Champagne Garden situated at Bedfrdview's HQ Office Park, Block A, 3rd floor, got a relaxing feel to it. I did my booking via email 48 hours prior and received a prompt response as confirmation.
On arrival, I received a warm welcome from Thando. She guided me to a well located seat next to a heater. As we were walking to my table, I immediately noticed the different types of premium champagnes displayed on a bright rack with a Moet and Chandon signature.
For a champagne garden, the decor did not reflect such, but it was rather ergonomic.
For a starter, I ordered Salmon California rolls and a freshly squeezed orange juice from their digital menu. The Sushi was well presented. Jabulile, my waitress, was patient as I was undecided, confused by everything on their astounding menu.
After the fresh Sushi and orange juice, Jabulile recommended their signature cocktail called Peach Passion fruit crush, apparently it's most famous amongst ladies. A perfect combination of crushed ice, vodka and passion fruit, it was chilling and mouth watering.
My main meal was their Asian pork short ribs served with skinny fries. The ribs were succulent, glazed with teriyaki sauce garnished with spring onions and I paired that with their Elderflower & Rosemary Gin cocktail.
Props to the chef, the food was flavourful and delectable.
The venue is available for birthdays, bridal and baby showers. Not only is it intimate, but it is also a fun place with a spectacular bar serving all kinds of alcohol and not limited to champagne.
