10 Degrees South is the only restaurant of it's kind in the USA, specializing in South African cuisine. South African cuisine is a fusion of French, Portuguese, Dutch, German & Malaysian cuisines with strong Mediterranean influences. The restaurant was founded in 1998 in a small bungalow in Buckhead Atlanta. Six years later, inspiration was taken from the sophisticated & modern hotels of Cape Town to transform 10 Degrees South. 10 Degrees South offers the passion for life which means the love of friends, family, food & drink!

Service was excellent. We decided to order three appetizers/starters to share: chicken livers, Bobotie Spring Rolls, and Biltong Carpaccio Caesar Salad. All were delicious and servings were so generous that none of us wished to order an entree individually, so we chose the Durban Curry and divided it. The presentation was beautiful and the quantity was more than adequate, but it was deficient in flavorings, with the banana slices on top being the best part. We concluded with flan (ordinary) and Amarula. While the cost of food seemed satisfactory, the rather short wine list, although wide-ranging and including selections from South Africa, the United States, and Europe, was on the high-end, with bottles of most reds over a hundred dollars. All of us enjoyed the experience and the meal and recommend the restaurant to others.

Sat with dirty dishes for a while. The food was very good and large portions but don’t think we will return due to the level of service.

Thus, he was not able to be as attentive as what I am accustomed to receiving at this establishment. Overall, I enjoyed my dining experience.

Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. I LOVED the decor, the bathroom was clean, I can't give enough praises. This was also our first time dining on South African cuisine, we were very pleased. They had flan, which is my partner's favorite desert, so he was extremely happy.

Lay out of the restaurant was unique, service was truly excellent (throughout the experience from the valet through to the close of the meal), and the menu was designed well as were the wine selections. (They have a great brut rose by the glass and the mussels were lovely!)

Meat temp. exactly as ordered (which in Atlanta seems to be an issue more often than not). I will be happy to return soon.

The seafood dishes we both ordered were excellent as were the cocktails. Our server, Jaime was extremely attentive and even gave us complimentary glasses of prosecco. Seating was arranged so as to avoid being in close proximity to the adjacent table. A negative was that the dining room was terribly cold and both of us as well as other diners were forced to keep on their coats.
