Great place to eat, starters superb especially the Korean Chicken and Flat Iron steaks were great along with the sides. Staff were friendly and looked after us well. Only problem was music was so loud we couldn't speak to each other- but maybe thats what...other diners like! One of our party said was like dining in a night club! probably quieter dining outside. Overall a great meal though.More

We were recommended by staff at our hotel to try this restaurant. We were happy to see that we could have small portions and steak was cooked to perfection. Small treat of fresh popcorn cooked in beef drippings was delicious. At the end of the...meal we had complimentary ice cream cone with caramel ice cream and chocolate shavings. Salad was refreshing and had a nice lemon dressing.More

Superb flavour, setting and price! We had the winter special which consisted of a unique blend of popcorn cooked in wagyu beef oil= phenomenal flavour. Then they brought us the main meal which was a healthy salad with light dressing and the winner a flat...iron steak served over a hot rock plate. Finished with a salted caramel ice cream. Amazing, one of the best meals I’ve had! Thanks for the memories!More

My husband and I had a wonderful steak dinner here. The porterhouse was perfectly cooked. The sides were also delicious. The old fashion was very well made. We had a really good dinner here and I highly recommend this restaurant.

The service was slow and took a while to receive our food. The waitress was nice but she didn’t seem very enthusiastic. We love the concept having a similar place in London called flat iron but it didn’t live up to it. The steaks were...over cooked slightly and the fries tasted stale. Like they’d been cooked and left under a heat lamp for a while. It’s also not cheap as all the elements add up like the tiny pot of sauce for the same price as fries. The creamed spinach and onions rings were really good, as was the complimentary popcorn and ice cream to finish. The ice cream gave this rating a star alone. Overall I wouldn’t return as it was just ok. nothing special.More

We wanted to have steak whilst in Cape Town and this was at the top of the list when we looked at reviews - and rightly so. We hadn't booked but there was plenty of space for us early on a Saturday evening. Our waitress...talked us through the menu, food and drinks were quick to come and really tasty. The free ice cream on the way out was a lovely surprise. It wasn't the cheapest place in Cape Town, probably a similar price to what we would pay at home, but felt well worth it.More

The food was superb, our best meal in Cape Town so far...- The mash potato and gravy side was 100% a highlight Our server, Thomas, was incredibly attentive and couldn't do enough to make sure our family meal was great and our little boy who we ate with was happy.
