Ever had one of those lazy Sundays, not wanting to cook or braai? We had one of those and decided to go for the Chicken Schnitzel special. 8 Schnitzels, cheese sauce, chips, onion rings and 2 veggies, for R300!!!!! We had a blast, and even...had enough left over for dinner. No other place we have ever visited has portions the size of Ginellis'! What great value for money!! We'll be back soon!!More

A gem of a restaurant, full even on a weeknight because people come from far and wide to eat there. The specials are great - especially on the G&Ts, we had a few! It was a lovely experience, can recommend it.

My boyfriend and I went for a weekend away in Middelburg. We wanted something for lunch and found this little gem on Google. We were very happy with our visit. The service was fantastic and the COVID protocols were outstanding! My boyfriend and I both...had pizza. They were very generous with their fillings. The pizza was extremely tasty! The service from the managers to the waiters was awesome. I’d definitely recommend them if you’re visiting Middelburg or even stay in the area.More

Like we do every year, we decided that Ginellis Restaurant will once again be our restaurant of choice. How else, it was a special occasion that could only be celebrated with the best food in town! My wife had pasta and I enjoyed a fillet...of steak. Perfect cannot decribe or give it full justice, this was heavenly! The veg complimented the meat and I just about rolled out of there. Friendliest staff and management, always makes us feel right at home. Thank you! We will surely be back for more!More

We are frequent visitors of Ginelli's. It is the perfect restaurant for date night or even an amazing family get together. Their food quality is top notch! Best in town. Price range is slightly above other restaurants but you definitely get what you pay for,...so will go back anytime! Staff is very well trained and very knowledgeable, they are also very friendly and welcoming. Love the extra touches that they give with the tastigs when you enter as well as the "spaza travelling shop" escepially the melktertjie kettle!More

We had dinner here recently and were very happy. Nelson, our waiter, was great. He was very attentive and friendly. The food was tasty and the steaks were well prepared. The ambience is stylish and modern and we had a nice table. The own little...con was that the white wine could have been colder. We would love to return.More
