The Maslow Hotel Business Lunch Challenge


The Maslow Hotel is known for its beautiful lawns, spectacular rooms, and it’s brilliant restaurant and bar. They invited us to their business lunch power hour, and this is what happened.

Located in Sandton’s Financial District, the upmarket Lacuna Bistro at The Maslow hotel is one of the most exclusive restaurants on Rivonia Road. Lacuna Bistro specialise in locally sourced bistro-style cuisine with a lavish breakfast, power lunch and experiential dinner – all from an à la carte menu prepared by their newly appointed executive chef.

Famous for their gourmet breakfasts, power lunches for executives on the go and decadent high teas, Lacuna Bistro is a popular choice for business executives and visitors to Sandton. But we’re here to talk about their business lunch promise. Sun International contacted us bragging how they could treat us to lunch and have us back in the office before the boss noticed that we were gone. Fair enough/ WHo’s going to say no to a free lunch at a fancy bistro in Sandton? Not us!

The Business Lunch menu consists of a harvest table filled with bite sized veggie, cheese, and other creations. This can be accompanied by plates of chicken, fish or prawn dishes.

We opted for something off of their main course menu – the 500g rib eye steak which the Maslow Hotel is known for. This was paired with some roast veg and the most beautiful potato chips we’ve ever had. Tasty is an understatement. But is it possible to have a fun and fancy meal in under an hour? Don’t ask us how the Lacuna Bistro’s kitchen pulled it off, but we managed to sit down, have starters and mains in 38 minutes flat. Impressive is an understatement.

So, the next time you find yourself in Sandton aching for a power business lunch, then book a table at the Lacuna Bistro for sure. They will get you sorted in no time at all.
