This place use to be one of the better places,but they insist in changing food that used to be good to below average. Slowly starting to skimp on bread and butter and meat snippets. Food lamb chops 2 soft 2 impossible to eat,Lamb shank below...average. Dessert terrible 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️😳😳 We've been regulars,not sure if we'll be back,so sorryMore

This is our favourite steakhouse. The service is friendly and attentive, the steak is meltingly tender and delicious and the ambience is great too! You haven’t lived until you’ve tried the chateaubriand.

This was a great experience with excellent steak and service. The desert was very good and it was an overall excellent experience.

The restaurant was recommended. I normally pop into Hussar Grill in Paarl for a similar experience. But thought I will try something different. I thought I would try one of their gourmet burgers as I was not very hungry. I specifically asked for my meat...to be medium rare. I do not enjoy my meat any other way. However, I would have been fine with a medium. Instead it was charcoal. When a patty falls apart because it is so dry. I told the waitress, who apologised. I also do not want to send it back and be the only person sitting waiting for a replacement while the rest of my family have finished their food. So I ate it. I also asked for an ice cold beer. They brought me a cool beer and a bucket of ice. Really not what is expected from a restaurant!More

First time vising this branch and they are making it difficult for me to go anywhere else now! From the greeting at the door to our waiter, Steven and our food - SUPERB! It's a lovely setting and oh so comfy. Happy ☺️ Loved to...see how the waters check the cleanliness of the glasses.More

Great food with a massive choice from vegetarian, chicken, fish to the red meats that they are known for. Charles was very attentive and knowledgable and the whole team made us feel very welcome. We will return!
