I had a great meal here, food was well cooked and well presented. Lots of options available too. Staff were very helpful and efficient. Prices are good for the quality provided. I would definitely recommend.
Had a half chicken that was the same size as a small pigeon that wasn’t even that tasty.. very shocked with the serving sizes and prices. See the picture below for an illustration of the serving sizes and and related prices. The other meal is...the smoked lamb flatbread special, which my girlfriend did say was very tasty.
I won’t come back, I do however think that there is a lot of potential for the place to be fantastic.More
We enjoyed a family feast a few weeks ago in celebration of our daughter's baptism, i must admit we chose the restaurant mostly for the location and the proximity to the beautiful lawn and kids play area. We've dined at Vadas on a few occasions...so i had an idea of what the food was like but had never seen the SET menu for large groups. I was informed by the manger on duty when we had breakfast that we would have to email to enquire for a large group booking. Keischa responded within a reasonable time to the email and she was very efficient and helpful with the suggestions and information provided. she allowed us to swop out a salad on our chosen menu of 3 meats, it is a pity they don't do a lamb spit for smaller group we were about 30 people. we were seated indoors on the day of the event due to rain which really took away the first reason why i chose the venue. kids were still happy to play outside inspite of the rain. the service was better than average which is what i've come to know from previous experiences there was a head waiter or junior manager that co-ordinated the food to the table. we also had a guest with a severe pork allergy and thankfully all was well, this particular guest was thoroughly impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. I thought that even though this was a few weeks ago i have to write this review as the food definitely exceeded mine and my guests expectations the a'la carte menu my husband and i have dined on at least 5 different occasions including breakfast ... the quality of the food was just exceptional on this day that we had the SET menu was definitely worth the money spent.Thank you VADAS for making our celebration memorable and highly enjoyable.More
I love the Vadas concept. Family-style meals, delicious. It is close enough to fine dining in the sense that the food quality is great but relaxed enough that families can also enjoy the atmosphere. It is quite pricey, but the food is great, which makes...it totally worth it and an amazing treat.More
very overpriced and small portions. Service was very poor. Had breakfast at Lanzerac wine farm and the portions are much better for the same price and quality of food. Really disappointed. I think your instagram profile oversells the actual experience.
What rip-off the meat dishes are 100 gr at R80 and works out to R800 per kilo. Are you not ashamed of ourselves??!!
When I voiced my disappointment I was told it is an European menu. We live in Africa and if I wanted an...European menu I would go to Europe for the experience.
Remember your visitors from abroad can also make sums and realize that are getting NO value for their money!!!More
Visited for lunch, did not really have any expectations, but when the food arrived we first wondered if this is all or is there more coming, as it was remarkably small portions for the amount of money it cost. So yes, it felt like a...ripoff.
The food was average at best, when comparing with alternative restaurants.More
Vadas Smoke House & Bakery is located on the Spier Estate and is considered an excellent alternative to the hotel's own restaurant. We had dinner and tried various starters and main courses which are served in a tapas-like form. All dishes were excellent. We were...also able to enjoy a bottle of wine offered by the hotel in the restaurant. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Also the price/performance ratio is very good. Very recommendable!More
