Eaten here on a number of occasions and as a Brit I always get blown away by the quality and value of the steaks on offer. For this visit there was 16 of us and the service was excellent. Drinks and food were both amazing. I had the 400g Porterhouse (cooked rare) and it literally melted in my mouth. My... More

We tried a few places in the area and Linda Lapa is by far the best. The steaks was excellent. Nice fireplace(s) to keep you warm during those cold and misty days.

Spending the Easter weekend in Nottingham Road, we were referred to Linga Lapa if we enjoyed a good local steak, which we do. The rib starter was so delicious we nearly ordered it as a main meal! But we came for a steak! My wife had the beef curry while I had one of the best medium rump steaks in... More

Take home some of their yummy ciabatta bread which is available on the weekends and some of their amazing rib eye steak. The boerewors is also a stand out classic!

Don't expect gourmet style food here. What you get is tender meat, delicious veg and tasty potatoes. It is the same quality every single time. Meat is sourced and butchered by the owner Ian and is magnificent. Lamb chops are a real win.

The owner bloke, a colossal guy called Ian McKay lumbered up to us and a great smile broke out on his face. His warm welcome and readiness to chat made us feel as though we'd opened the bowling together for our prep school first XI in 1962.
