Thank you for the extra miles you went! We were at Spur Cresta just after 8:00. Instead of breakfast we ordered the Sizzlers special, one Rump and one chicken schnitzel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were offered free drinks as the kitchen...was only serving breakfast and would take a little longer to prepare our food. The "baby sitter" at the kids playground was amazing, keeping our 7year old entertained throughout the whole breakfast. The staff remained extremely friendly and professional, even though the people at the table opposite us were very rude. The food and milkshakes were very well prepared. Thank you for a great experience!More

I must be honest I used to avoid Spur but now that I have a young, active son, I seek them out. This franchise was lovely with an option to sit upstairs where the play area is which was very convenient. There is a carer...who keeps an eye on the kids. The play area is not as large as some of the franchises we have visited but adequate. The food was standard Spur fare and the service was attentive. Some of the beverage menu items advertised were not available. Will definitely returnMore

The Spur has really gone downwards with prices soaring and portions shrinking. The food has also become quite tasteless. The last Spur I visited was at Carnival City and this was because someone invited me and my family. It was what I expected, a complete...waste of time money and effort. Nothing really stands out anymore on the menu. I get the impression that any junk can be served up and people will still buy it as they are most probably to lazy to cook food themselves and rely on eat outs. Also a person does not feel welcome anymore. You are just more feet in the door ready to be fleeced of your money so that the Spur group can push profits. This was also my last time at the Spur.More

We visited a couple of Spur's restaurants in Cape Town (Canal Walk & Bergvliet) and I have to admit that I found the food to be incredibly overpriced for the processed crap they serve. Their steaks are as tough as takkie soles and their 'cheese'...is processed garage. The service is somewhat standard. Very dissapointing! Spur has lost our support for the foreseeable future.More

We arrived at Spur to start of our date night, already knowing what we wanted and excited. To our surprise, our favorite dish, creamy garlic snails is no longer on the menu, we enquired with the waiter to find out if they can still make...it, he return advising they can, we placed our order for 2 portions and a portion of crumbed mushrooms. We placed our drink order, being our date night we decided to spoil our selfs a bit, my wife ordered a strawberry daiquiri and I order a southern comfort on the rocks. The drinks arrived, to our shock the daiquiri was 2/3 filled, which the waiter corrected, first impressions guys. My wife took the watery daiquiri, being so sweet she asked me to taste, man this drink was horrible, coming our of the industry myself this was it right. We returned the drink and ask if they can make us a proper daiquiri, the manager came to see us to ask what is the matter, my wife explained to him the drink was horrible and not what we expected, a daiquiri should be the consistency of slush according to our past experiences and my experience as a Cocktail Bartender. The second daiquiri arrived, even worse then the first one, asking the manager to the process they follow to created the drink. Crushed ice mixed with the syrup and alcohol with a spoon is not the right way Spur, this is a blended drink made with a blender. Wait looking at your menu, it's blended? Wow guys please Google the meaning of blended or remove it from your menu. After the drinks being an epic failure, we told each other at least the food will be great as we have been going to spur for years and the food is always great. The food arrived, oh no what is this? A bowl of snails laying in garlic butter, so sad as we order creamy garlic snails, snail cover with garlic butter small amount of garlic sauce and some cheddar cheese. The manager returned, disappointed we returned the snails, running out of time we decided not to take a second change, as with the daiquiri we did not want to take any more chances and we needed to leave as we had movie tickets for 19:45 and it already being 19:25. We did receive our mushrooms and that was good. This was the worse experience I have ever had at Spur, guys what is happening, I would have understood if the shop was packed however the shop had 15 tables being occupied out of 63, I counted, waiters all hanging around by the door. Come on guys, your are an iconic brand in South Africa.More

Not up to the usual Spur franchise standards you come to expect, the wait staff were a bit slow even though not busy, the burgers pretty much standard Spur fare but the chips were disappointing, the coffee was cool when it arrived.

We had the most traumatic experience at SPUR HEMMINGWAYS MALL on Saturday the 20th of July 2019. My sister took out my nephew to go play at Spur Hemmingways Mall and my nephew went missing while he was under their supervision. The worst part was...the restaurant showed no sense of urgency while all of this was going on, I mean we hear of kids getting snatched all the time but Spur did nothing, they did not even notify the security at the mall that there was a child missing, we had to do the running around, not even one staff member assisted while we were running around the mall searching for the child, they were just going about the business and just told us that they are not responsible for the kids that play in the play area. The child went out of the play area and then went out of the restaurant while there are people at the restaurant door attending to people that walk in and out of the restaurant. Why do you even have someone in the play area “watching the kids” then if you are going to be so negligent??? REALLY DISAPPOINTING AND DISGUSTED with the treatment we got.More

Spur food is always the same. That is what makes it a Spur. Service was really good. But the childrens play area leads onto a parking lot with a low wall. So low that I was concerned that someone could easily pick a child over...it. Maybe it could be improved. Still a advisable option if you have kids with youMore
