Unique decoration and atmosphere makes for a great night out. Attentive waitrons and very good steaks done to perfection illustrates why Founders has survived where others have not!!

We have eaten at this restaurant for many years. The decor stayed the same in 30 years , displaying artifacts of the mine community about 100 years ago. It seems as if could do with a good cleaning. However , we have mostly eaten a...good steak , if nothing special. The very last time we both ordered T-bone , done medium. The meat was cut so extremely thin , about 1/2 cm , it is impossible to be anything but well done and grey and tasteless! This is the thinnest cut T-bone we have ever come across and it was awful! This is Goodbye Founders, we will never eat there again.More

We visited as a family group of six, all with different food preferences and were all impressed with the variety and quality of food on offer and the efficient but unobtrusive service. Filet steak with mushroom sauce was one of the best I have ever...eaten. The Lamb Shank was also highly praised. Compliments to the kitchen staff and management on a memorable experience.More

Founders Grill is a family restaurant which as the name suggests serves grilols but also servees variety of oother dishes. The food is of good quality and reasonably priced In fact by British standards inexpensive. The service is friendly and unobtrusive. The only downside is...the parking which is on the opposite of a busy main road so crossing can pose a problemMore

I had dinner here with a colleague after we could not face the dinner in the hotel we stayed in. I have known the Founders Grill in Florida Park for the best part of thirty years and have never been disappointed there, so decided to...try this one in Cresta Mall. The food was great as I expected. When you go to a place with "Grill" in its name, you expect good steaks. You will not be disappointed here. Good quality meat done to order and perfection. The veggies (butternut and spinach) were also tasty and fresh. Service was fast, efficient and friendly. I'll be back for more at the next opportunity.More

My wife and I had supper at Founders in Cresta last night. The service was prompt and to our satisfaction. We both ordered the Sirloin steak. It was cooked to perfection, and we were both very pleased. The meat was tender, and the cut was...perfect. Thank youMore

Always a great value for money eatery to go to, either just as a couple or a full party of people. Private function rooms also available if required. The establishment is well know in the area and management is always present. The atmosphere is conducive...to either a romantic dinner, business lunch / dinner or just a family outing. The food is of exceptional quality and service quick. Staff are well trained and very polite and know their menu's. I have been there on numerous occasions and never regretted going there. Their weekly specials are also amazing!!!!!!!!More
