My fine dining Expectations were shatered. Service was very bad. The restaurant was very bad, the food too blant and all the prices escalated. With the Resturant having a lot of room because we had pre booked we were placed right by the kitchen, exit...and toilets, I got an uneasy sense it was because of our skin color.More

My partner and I were given the most amazing service by our waitress (Julian). We read some of the negative reviews that were posted by others on this platform prior to taking the decision to go. And we can emphatically say those reviews must be...ignored because the place was nothing short of a 5 star dining experience. Location 10/10, Quality and food portions 10/10, hosting 10/10. We will be sure to visit again, and definitely stay the night next time.More

Service was great until our waitress disappeared during the meal and never returned.... Venue is beautiful. On arrival we order cocktails which couldn't be made as the machine was broken!! We ordered starter pizzas with rocket, no rocket available!! Main meal was fillet and the...day special which was mutton curry. Fillet was dry, tasteless and certainly did not look like the picture advertised. Mushroom sauce was runny and it came with the most boring vegetables. For the price I expected a lot more effort on the plate. Mutton curry looked like a runny stew and was tasteless. We then asked for the Creme' Brule' dessert and were told they didn't have any.....!! Pizza starter was outstandng though, even with no rocket.....!!!More

Been there with my wife on Valentine's day 2021. Extremely expensive, limited menu, small portions, not what we expected from a restaurant of this stature. In my personal opinion this restaurant should not be considered as one of the top restaurants in Amanzimtoti.

My parents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary here. The staff were amazing, the food incredible and the manageress was fab! I organised their meal from the UK and the manageress really went put if her way to assist. Excellent service all round. Thank you!

This is a nice setting & the food is lovely but unfortunately I have to agree with previous reviews of small portions & high prices. The food is really good. The spinach cannelloni was a great choice but my husband ordered the fish of the...day which was Soul & the portion equated to two big sardines for R240. Although my cannelloni was lovely, I could’ve purchased the same at Woolworths for half the price. Perhaps their target audience is foreigners & then I suppose keeping the average Joe out is part of it but I can’t imagine how that would make good business sense considering the nr of staff. Still worth it if you have money to burn or a girl to impress but really not a good option to take a family with kids. Service was decent.More

Spent two nights and sampled the pasta and beef fillet options. Both were excellent quality but really small portions. You'll go hungry without the starter. Complimentary mini pizza was tasty but doesn't add to the meal. Really good quality but portions need to be lifted....Waitress was great and a really nice setting.More

My wife and I visited Giorgio's on 14 February for Valentines. The menu consisted mainly of pastas and pizzas - for a 5 Star restaurant? Really? With only one beef option, fillet of beef, we had no choice, but to order it. At R220.00 for...a 200gr (?) It is overpriced. We paid R35.00 for veggies - a few pieces of cauliflower and a slice of onion - talk about overpriced! The potatochips tasted like ovenchips - and probably was just that. The winelist/Sparkling wine list was extensive but also very expensive - from R180 upwards. What about a good bottle of wine for R140? I can think of many. The waiter's "tip" was already included, which did not give us the opportunity te decide for ourselves. 5 Star prices for a meal that can be had at other good restaurants for much less. Won't visit again.More

I’ve been to Giorgio’s a few times. Was hoping this time (post lockdown) the menu would have been updated. Still same old... we had 2 vegetarian pastas. Both lacked flavor and imagination. Not much more than what you could get from a woolies ready meal....It is time that the cuisine starts matching the updated decor and set up!More

Quite difficult to review... Ambience : wow! Beautiful view of the ocean. The decor is exquisite. Very elegant and sophisticated. Yet extremely comfortable and homey.. Service: can't fault the service at alll. We felt welcome, and were waited on perfectly. The waiters are well trained...and polite. Food: I had a fish cake starter and mussel and prawn pasta, my husband had snails and tiger prawn mains. The meal presentation was the perfect fine dining. Medium sized potions. Quite nice and tasty. Well priced wine list.More

Booked specific table for 4 after 1st visit eating pasta, despite wife's lambshank and malva pudding being very disappointing. Was a big mistake. Arrived and table was given to other customers. Ordered tiger prawns and received by far the smallest prawns in South Africa, but...of course one of the largest price tags. An insult to think we believed these to be tiger prawns. Rice tasted like nothing. Manager of the evening avoided only our table - guilty concience I'm sure...... Waited 15 min after finising completely before a visit again from waitress to ask for the bill. My advice: at best eat only a low cost pasta from the menu, avoid any so called specials or expensive dishes - you will be disappointedMore

Very tasty and well prepared food. Friendly service. Quite pricey though, so this does affect perceived value. R44 for 750ml of bottled water is rough.
