A great place for a quick, well priced hot breakfast and delicious steaks and ribs for lunch or supper. There is also a fantastic view of the berg and Giant's Castle and a wonderful deli/shop packed full of yummy goodies!

Well all I can say is this place stole my better half's heart cause when he walked in the door the buffet was so inviting he had to stay to enjoy it. Food was tasty, decor absolutely amazing we could spend hours just looking at everything. Service was average but they where very busy. Stunning place. We loved it.

We were taken to Linga Lapa for dinner and coming from Capetown I have had some great steaks at Cattle Baron, Hussars and Famous Butchers Grill but the steak I had on Friday night was outstanding. The service was excellent and the attentiveness of the owner was great. Well worth stopping there if you in the area on a Friday... More

A group of friends and myself stopped here for a bite to eat during a day of meandering. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered the ribs, my boyfriend had the fillet and the rest of the group had a mix of burgers, rump and T bone. The meat was with a doubt prepared to perfection. I couldn't... More

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

Vegetables were creamed spinach, potato and butternut.It was delicious. Wines were reasonably priced and the desserts were also very good. There were other options apart from the carvery and, all 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!
