Service pathetic, furniture needs repairing - table very wobbly, menu items not available/in stock, tea in pot served luke warm - cast iron teapot not pre-warmed. On the plus side, the meal that I ordered was good despite being over peppered, and my coffee was...delicious despite the handle-less mug served on an odd, ill-fitting saucer. Overall, an ugh experience and I will not return.More

Excellent food, we had the hake and chips, the Mediterranean Chicken Wrap and Halloumi. However if we can give one tip get the Salted Caramel Baked Cheese Cake...its divine

Delicious platters ordered for my wife’s surprise birthday party. In addition, two of the best cakes ever. Chocolate and carrot cake. Not a morsel was left! Thank you to Chris and the team at Nina’s for your outstanding service and five star food.

This is really like a hidden gem in the town of George. It is so beautiful and cosy and Claudio and his team is so friendly and made us feel at home. Not to mention the food, very delicious. Great place for work and small...family functions or just for a relaxing night out 💕More

I have consistently found the waitresses at Nina's to be extremely unfriendly and making me feel unwelcome. I won't recommend the place. Food also average.

I've been to Nina's a number of times since moving to George and I've decided it's my favourite spot. The food never disappoints and the service is friendly. The atmosphere is really lovely - day and night. I'm guilty of always having the same dish:...carrot cake for tea time or baked sweet potato with caramelised chicken for dinner. My son loved the hake. This place is classy and casual.. a lovely balance. 5 stars every time!More

This review is a bit overdue, but definitely well-earned! I want to thank Wernard and Tasha (the wonderful owners of this establishment), the amazing manager Claudio, server Chanélle, the kitchen team led by Chef Neill, the bakery team led by Rachel, and the ENTIRE Nina's...team for the incredible 64th birthday party they arranged on my behalf for my mother. I'm working abroad, so this meant even More to me! Not only did the team treat my mother, and her friends, like the absolute gems they are, but also provided (the usual) stellar service, and even took photos for me, and sent it to me on WhatsApp, while I was sailing around northern Europe on a cruise ship. I especially want to single out the Front of House Manager Claudio Zampieri, who not only created a special "invitation card", on my behalf, for every invited guest, but also was in constant contact with me, to arrange the perfect surprise party for my Mom. Thank you, THANK YOU ALL at Nina's Café!More

Amazing. Excellent. Exceptional. Wonderful. OUT OF THIS WORLD. Truly the best restaurant I have EVER been to. Service is amazing, food is phenomenal and the vibe is unmatched. Our waiter, Elroy, was friendly and took very good care of us.

Claudio and Kayla were amazing!!! The bobotie springrolls and ALL the savouries as well as the CARROT CAKE were fantastic!!Our guests were so impressed with the quality as well as the amount of treats. We were very well looked after by Kayla and we had...an absolutely lovely time. The area in the restaurant where we were was perfect as we were in a quiet area where there was no walk through.

Service was a bit lacking this time and lots of flies.. A few citronella candles spotted around would have made the lunch rest rushed. Food always tasty but portions on salads have shrunk considerably. Left a bit hungry...

We were a group of 4 and all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We had previously booked and the only problem was that the receptionist could not hear me because of the background noise, would suggest that they locate phone calls to a quieter area of the...restaurant. On arrival, we were greeted by a friendly smiling staff member and immediately shown to our reserved table. Our drinks were brought to us promptly, and the food arrived without an excessive wait and was beautifully presented, and was delicious. We have been to this restaurant many times now and have yet to be disappointed.More
