Rocket Restaurant And Cocktail Bar, Johannesburg

Written by Brianna Smity

Situated on Rivonia Boulevard, this trendy restaurant offers the menu and ambience for both long lunches and fantastic dinners. There’s been much buzz about it in the last year, and Rocket has become a regular haunt for Joburg’s more hip clique. In addition to dining on the deck or in the beautifully manicured Zen garden, patrons can enjoy one of Rocket’s many superb cocktails, including their very own Rocket Starburst, at the chic and inviting bar.

The African-minimalist décor and eye-catching water feature give the restaurant its edge but, we’ll say, definitely go for the Mediterranean inspired and flavour-filled food; absolutely delectable! Great vibe, great cosmopolitan fare and unexpectedly great prices!

Bookings are essential Thursday through to Sunday and, unlike most restaurants in the area, Rocket is open on Mondays as well.

Visit for more info and find them in Rivonia, on the corner of Rivonia Blvd and 11th Ave.

Hey! My name is Brianna Smity and I'm majoring in Integrative Public Relations and minoring in Multimedia Design at University of Southern California ( I love drawing and painting and I spend a lot of my time outdoors, more specifically on the water. I love to paddle board, boat, kayak, rollerblade, and bike. I LIVE for dogs and I would own 500 if I could. I have a black lab puppy named Luna and I miss her everyday I'm here at CMU. I love to listen to music, my taste is pretty diverse, but I am especially into 90s pop and alternative. My guilty pleasure is watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians, yes I know, but I am ADDICTED. My ultimate goal is to hopefully run social media platforms for a large company such as Victoria's Secret or Kylie Cosmetics.
