I have never had a bad meal here. The meat is superb and well hung and the vegetable selection most tasty. They have a large number of waiters for different purposes - drinks, food and one of the managers who comes to take the order. We generally have gone on cool evenings and only once sat indoors. The veranda caters... More

Dining at Wombles has always been a pleasure. The restaurant is based in a hidden away old residential property and entirely looks out onto the small garden and 'boma' (fire area). Originating from 'Ol Rhodesia, it's not surprising that the speciality is red meat, especially steak. I can't recommend much beyond the bone marrows as starter and T-bone for main... More

The food is excellent and sitting on the "stoep" makes this an attractive venue.

I was taken here by my wife for my 40th Birthday....and what a treat it was. I have eaten at fine restaurants all over the world and Wombles is now up there with the best of them.......The service from the moment we walked in was out of this world, and that service lasted all the way through.

If you want to treat yourself to an exceptional steak, I can suggest better places in Johannesburg. Wombles is charming, if the weather is good and you are seated outside but other than that there isn't much more I could praise them for. I have been few times and I cannot confidently say that they are consistent, but they definitely... More

So we ambled across to Wombles for our Company's xmas lunch...just 8 of us, facing a set menu with 3 choices of starters, 3 main course choices but sadly, only one dessert choice. Delicious calamari tubes, grilled to near perfection for me, a scattering of grilled mushrooms and a few salads for the others, all met with good comments. The... More

Wombles is an institution in JHB; it is my old faithful place when I have guests from overseas or just want a special dinner out. The ambience feels like a luxury game reserve, it is fantastic in winter with a cosy fireplace blazing. The staff are superior in their food and wine knowledge; the service is exceptional. The food is... More

We were entertaining clients and they could only make a Monday lunchtime. Wombles was one of the establishments on our shortlist that was open. We had a table on the verandah overlooking the small patch of garden. A touch of greenery is always an agreeable vista. The restaurant was strangely quiet, because we know from experience that in the evenings... More
