A gastronomic experience like no other would be the best way to sum up, Le Petit Chef’s Dinner Time Story experience!
Hosted at the exquisite Blueberry Hill Hotel located in the picture-perfect suburb of Honeydew in Johannesburg North! This worldwide renowned dining experience is well-deserving of its global acclaims and accolades!
Before jumping into this review, we would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Chef extraordinaire Paul Rouessart, for allowing us the privilege to experience the magical event that is Dinner Times Stories!
The level of attention to detail and the finesse used in the décor creates one of a kind experience and sets the tone for what is to be a visually immersive experience!
Mood lighting sets the stage for a welcoming atmosphere. A combination of soft yet distinct French classic music played in the background together with a live musician created a vibrant atmosphere!
The entire ambience and atmosphere awaken all your senses. It’s one of those moments in life that truly needs to be experienced to be appreciated!
The check-in station is beautifully designed and included a selection of Pongracz champagne to welcome guests. We thought this was a thoughtful touch!
It must also be mentioned that they adhere to all Covid protocols. The Le Petit Chef goes over and above, to make sure his guests are comfortable and safe!
There was a buzz of excitement, delight, and anticipation in the air for what was to come!
To our delight, all staff members involved in the production of this world-class experience went out of their way to make you feel like the most important person in the WORLD, never mind just the room! There was what seemed to be an endless brigade of staff assisting and serving each guest throughout the night. All interaction with a staff member left you with a smile on your face and a feeling of complete satisfaction! It almost felt like we were transported to a magical place.
Each guest had a one-on-one experience with Le Petit Chef who is the main man himself! Patrons are constantly being checked on by the hotel’s management staff. Simply put this management team are in a league of their own and only add to the already exceptional experience!
