Well, dining in South Africa is not an in and out experience, they dine. However, this place was attentive, service was great, and they were quicker than most places we ate at. The steaks were amazing, sauces excellent, and overall a good night out. Prices were good too. Several staff came to ask us if we were happy, and our... More

It was a birthday meal. Until now we had not had steak during our vacation so thought this venue would be ideal to try one. The t-bone steak came in a 500g piece, whilst the fillet was 200g. The meat was accompanied by a few veg and chips. Both steaks were juicy and well cooked, taking into account our preferences... More

Having been at our fair share of steak houses and restaurants, I have to say that this was a worthwhile experience. Steak cooked to perfection, sides that were equally scrumptious and service to compliment the food. We will be back!

100% nice restaurant, friendly staff, perfect meals, good wines, varied menu. Overall a good restaurant, not very cheap, but not expensive. All the staff was well known about the meals, menu, suggestions, had also gluten-free options.

I had such high hopes for this place given the rave reviews on tripadvisor that I chose it for my parents 51st wedding anniversary while on holiday in Cape Town. The evening started well until our order was taken. Our waiter returned a few minutes later to tell us that they had sold out and we needed to choose another... More

On first appearances I wasn't sure about this place as it looked very commercial and lacked personality and character. However the mouthwatering fillet steaks trumped this and the service was excellent. This place just needs more of an atmosphere.

I would highly recommend this restaurant for thise who want to eat some excellent meat, in an original and innovative restaurant, which also hosts a shop. The service was excellent and the waiters very professional.

Table for two, we got a table at 21:00 since we hadn't booked. Steaks were excellent and cooked to perfection (rare) food in general very good with decent portions, wine list was disappointing, only one bottle of Pinot Noir available, fortunately it was a very good one, Creation Reserve Pinot Noir but did come at a hefty price. Very comfortable,... More

I've been to restaurants 5 days at minimum out of 7 over the past few years and yes... we all have hits and misses in our experiences when you eat out this much... However... 1. I've never been treated like a third class citizen ever!!! Certainly not by management; 2. Ryan the manager shouted me down whilst trying to explain... More
