Once again we experienced a very enjoyable evening at Carlyle's Restaurant. The food is excellent, tastily presented and the service is attentive but not intrusive. Our waiter on the night was also knowledgeable with regards to the wine list.

Service/management is not as good as it used to be (a lot of bickering between staff in front of customers). Some of the dishes are really good, however wine prices are becoming a bit expensive for a casual diner. Its a relaxed local vibe which...More

A wide variety of daily drinks specials. I enjoyed 50l Peroni Draughts for R25 each from 5-7pm while my mate knocked back tequila shots 😖 at R15 a pop. Unpretentious locals' pub with good free Wifi.

From the moment we walked we were treated so well.... from my name on the table (we did reserve the previous day) to the helpful and friendly waiter (JP). We did have the best seat in the restaurant (corner window seat) which was so comfortable....More

The burgers are surprisingly good - especially the blue cheese burger... We put the chips in the oven for a few more minutes and get the most awesome crispy chips. Also, the pizza is good!! 4.5 out of 5!
