Johannesburg – South Africa


It’s always exciting when I find a new restaurant where I can eat. Possums restaurant was recommended by a close friend who invited us to lunch. It’s quaint with a tranquil atmosphere and the perfect venue for business lunch or to enjoy a dining experience with friends. It’s situated in Craighall which is very central but you get the feeling of been in a European countryside of some kind.

I love the outside area with the beautiful settings amongst trees and flowers… but unfortunately, the temperature was too hot to enjoy this outdoor space on this particular day.

It has a cosy atmosphere with different types of decor.

Artwork hangs on the walls which are for sale.

The fish was delicious although I was not expecting it to be served with the head. I don’t like to see fish head on my plate! Sorry, I didn’t take more pictures of the food. I was more concentrated on eating and enjoying my friend’s company.

Back of the restaurant is a lovely small herbs garden.


If you go to Joburg you will definitely want to visit this restaurant – and if you enjoy eating meat…look no further than Wombles!

The decor is colonial style with comfortable seats – but I wasn’t too happy with the animal head, hanging on the wall above our table. It boasts an interesting menu and extensive wine list.

Grilled calamari tubes with lemon sauce…so delicious!

Escargots-Snails in garlic lemon and parsley!

Fillet 260g with vegetables.


My travel agency of choice has got to be Travel Xcellence. Booking a vacation or business trip on the internet might be more convenient  – but if there are problems with hotels or missing flights you have to sort it out yourself – which could be very stressful.

A reputable and customer friendly travel agent such as Travel Xcellence will be able to assist and help you to have a better experience.
