Spectacular. It’s the best steak I have had in a very long while. Please visit this restaurant. The staff were amazing, the chef is excellent. Our waitress went above and beyond her duties to make it a great night.

I arrived at the restaurant at around 7:30 for dinner. I was informed there was no available seating inside the restaurant and directed to the patio. I ordered a beer which came promptly, service i have come to expect from Red Ox. However there was...a prompt decline in service from then on. As the sun went down it became apparent there was no lighting on the patio. We asked our waiter to keep an eye out for a table inside/outside with some lighting. At this point (8:20) we placed an order for food after being told the kitchen closed at 8:45. We were not attended to again for the rest of the evening and not offered an inside table despite seeing many customers leave and many tables becoming available.More

Arrived at 7:30pm to be told there were no available seating options inside or outside(which there clearly was) the best they could do was the patio seating- was more than grateful to Atleast be seated. Order a few beers, which took some time to get....Asked the waiter more than once that if a table freed up we would like to move out front and enjoy the atmosphere as well as some “lightning” as there was nothing in the back. To no avail It was dark, minimal service, we watched a table outside move to the other table as if the place were empty, while still being told there was no available seating. We waited 45 mins for our food, till after they “closed” the kitchen but still nothing. No update from a waiter. Terribly disappointed- been to the Red Ox in Upington and was tremendously impressed. Not impressed with this oneMore

Enjoyed the oxtail dish as well as the lamb curry. Absolutely delicious and divine food beautifully prepared and served. Staff was very friendly. Wonderful ambience. Loved it. One of the waiters kindly shared the story behind all the paintings. Very interesting. Thank you.

We stopped for a breakfast and to our surprise it was a huge buffet for a reasonable price. The waiters are excellent. Highly recommended.

I visited the Red Ox with my dad and we ordered the tender oxtail and rib eye steaks respectively. The food was amazing (the portion sizes were large and reflected the cost for the meal) and the service was fast and very friendly. We will...definitely be coming back!More

This is such a beautiful relaxed atmosphere restaurant. The food was excellent but the service of the waitres and the duty manager the night of 24 April was worst, terrible, disrespectful and poor. We were the last people eating and the waitress came, took the...plate away whilst we still eating. After complaining to the duty manager who was just standing and starring at us, nothing was done because she also wanted us just to leave. It was still 2 hours before closing time. They couldn’t wait for us to go so that they can close. The next morning at breakfast the same waitress were there and didn’t greet us after we greet her gently. I will never support the restaurant again when I sleep over again.More

Great warm spot for an evening meal. It was buzzing as many visitors in the area to see the Spring flowers. Liked the sherry that was served as one arrived. Steaks good and cooked to perfection. Fish combination also delicious. Ginger pudding to die for.......Highly recommendedMore
