I took my mom and dad to this restaurant in the Radisson Hotel for my mom's birthday on 2 October. While the hotel itself was impressive, the restaurant was definitely not so. Despite my calling and asking if they could do something for my mom's...birthday, the lady said no that they did not do anything - despite a pic on their website denoting otherwise. On arrival, I asked again and had to explain what I had seen and only then was something able to be done - a dessert that I ordered and paid for had "Happy 79th Birthday" written on the plate. Ok, so that was sorted but only as a result of me pushing and asking ... There was a lot of noise from the bar area in the restaurant from some very loud patrons - in fact so unpleasant that we all moved to the other side of the restaurant to escape it. However the amount of shouting from the kitchen behind the wall provided another challenge. Service was exceptionally slow and the food presented was extremely average. Not the night out that I had planned and a big disappointment. For an international hotel chain, I expected a lot better than what I experienced. The only highlight was the parking attendant at the front who happily arranged a parking in front of the hotel for my infirm parents. Well done to him - maybe the restaurant can take a lession from him.More

We stopped here for drinks on the way back from a long walk to the lighthouse. The bar was typical of a hotel bar but service was good as was the atmosphere.

Stayed at the Radisson Blu hotel where this restaurant is part of. Great meal served at reasonable price. Staff very friendly too.

Very disappointing! The rosé wine was hot, the soup was cold, the risotto uneatable ! This is a place to be avoided !

The menu has items which are no longer available. We asked for the Mezze Platter but were told they no longer did it. We then asked for a Roasted Veg and Pesto Sandwich, which was supposed to come with fries and salad. After some time...it appeared, however the “roasted veg” was in fact “boiled veg” and there was no salad. We queried the waiter however he said he had just started and couldn’t help... No suggestion of involving anyone else - he seemed quite terrified. So Radission Blu - really not good enough... you can’t charge your prices and not invest in your staff and not keep your menus up-to-date.More

Just left Tabu after deciding it was not worth staying there for dinner. First of all we waited extremely long just to get the menu. Then we waited even longer to order our drinks. The table was dirty and greesy. When our drinks came the...glasses were all wet and soaked the table even more. The wine was so bad, the beer as well. The cheese platter was a joke. They even gave us the end of a piece of cheddar. Quite disgusting. They put five pieces of crackers on the plate for the three of us and half rotten grapes. Then we decided to leave and not take our dinner there. Never again!More

Enjoyed a simple dinner of fish that was hake and a pinotage. The staff were great and asked if we wanted anything at the start and during the courses. The breads were good and the wine selection ideal. I eat often in hotels and even...this chain and the menu was a surprise not just burgers pizza or salads.More

We stayed at the Radisson, so also had dinner the their restaurant. The buffet included many curries, rice and lentils, croquettes, meatballs, all types of sauces to add on. The salad bar had all the usual plus creamy broccoli, chicken and noodles; there were soups...and varied vegetables to choose from. Desserts were petite and interesting, had a couple cakes. All in all there were selection for every appetite.More

Me and my wife went for dinner at the Tabo Grill on 22 December 2018. On our arrival we found that there where a wedding as well as a big birthday party on in the hotel. We where not sure if the restaurant would be...able to cope with such a big load all at ounce. We where pleasantly surprised, our food was great. From the starters, the mains and the deserts was all top class and the service was also very good. I think the food and beverage manager and staff who where on duty that Saturday afternoon and evening deserve a very big pat on the back, they handled the big demand very professionally. Will visit the Tabo Grill with pleasure again.More
