My husband and I were fortunate enough to get a table at Steffanies at short notice (they’ve been around for about 20 years and bookings are generally essential). We had the most amazing young lady serve us by the name of Danielle - what a lovely lady. She was exceptionally knowledgeable of the local wines and knew the menu back to front. We started with the oysters and followed it by one of the most delicious Caesar salads and their famous mussels with the best sauce I’ve ever tasted. We shared a yummy chocolate dessert that Danielle recommended and we were not disappointed. The only problem with Steffanies is that it’s not situated in the town that we live in - otherwise we’d be regular diners. A must place to eat if you’re in Somerset West....oh, and I almost forgot to mention the incredible views. :-)

Steffanie's Place has never disappointed and this occasion, on a gift voucher sent from New Zealand, was no exception. Starters – ostrich carpaccio; and fresh mussels. Both superb, and generous. The saffron and lemon sauce with a hint of chilli and garlic with the mussels deserves special mention. Mains – grilled cob; and well matured sirloin. Once again, both excellent. It is not an exaggeration to say that the sirloin was the best I've ever had, and was well-complimented by the mushroom and brandy sauce. Afters – Dom Pedro; and panna cotta with Amarula. The panna cotta was all oohs and aahs. A special word on the service and the waiters. The service was quick, and by the end of the evening we had been served by four waiters, all friendly, helpful and quick to attend, whether it was a request for a glass of water or an aircon adjustment. They made an enjoyable difference, and the tip was commensurate. Well done Steffanie's Place – your 'recipe' is spot on!

We managed to book through the website at the last minute. We were invited to have a drink on the terrace overlooking False Bay before our order was ready. The service was attentive and very pleasant (even if some new staff were being trained). The food was delicious with genrous portions. The Springbok Carpaccio and Asian Duck Spring rolls were starters followed by the grilled kingklip and the special Linefish cob were very well cooked. No room for desert.

First time I’ve been terribly dissatisfied with price, portions and service at Steffanies. Our waitress was not on top of her game and after serving our starters and drinks things slowly went from bad to worse. Got there at 7 but only served our mains at 9....... kitchen got the blame eventually! Not once did she pop over to keep us updated . Will not be going back again. And this place is a walk away from my home. In the past Steffanies was our go to place..... I miss how things were with the previous gentleman running it!

Our party visited on a warm, wind free evening and took advantage of the open patio area with lovely views, from where we enjoyed sundowners. We thereafter opted to eat inside as it was cooler. Our meals didn’t disappoint. Two in our party had the Norwegian salmon which was cooked to perfection and literally melted in the mouth. The fillet steaks were also very tender and flavourful. Portions were ample and all dishes, well presented. Excellent coffees rounded off a very good visit. Service was attentive but not obtrusive. Prices though are a little on the high side. We will definitely visit again.

The food was excellent however I had to bring down the star rating due to bad service. We had a really long wait between courses which was very poor and we were told the kitchen was very busy. Surely they knew how many bookings they would had for that night - after all it's a restaurant. We arrived early to have plenty of time to account for the curfew but because of the long pause between the starter and main course we then had to rush dessert and when we ordered coffee the waiter said the machine had already been switched off. He could have warned us when we ordered our dessert to order coffee at the same as they were going to close the coffee machine. No meal is complete without an expresso! Very disappointed.

We had our anniversary dinner at Steffanie's, and it was excellent. The ambience was nice, service excellent, and the food really delicious. It was too cold to be out on the terrace, but the nice view with the twinkling lights below was visible anyway. We had the duck spring rolls and black mushroom crostini for starters, and the west coast mussels and chicken parmesan for mains -- all great. Even though we were full, we shared the tiramisu (OMG, fantastic, light, not too sweet) for dessert. It was a bit quiet for a Friday night (maybe 30% full), so we wish more people would visit this nice local restaurant, which is a bit of an institution in Somerset West. We enjoyed the evening, and will be back.

Went there with a group of friends. I had the oysters to start which were super fresh and delicious. For mains I had the chef's cut special of dry aged ribeye which was cooked to perfection and out of this world with the pepper sauce. Our waitress Candice was extremely professional as well as friendly and accommodating. Would highly recommend giving them a visit for a wonderful dining experience.

First of all booking is almost essential. Over the past several years Steffanies has maintained a consistently high standard. On this visit the service was excellent and being seated in a low table number, quite near the entrance, seemed to be quieter. We went straight to the table rather than having drinks outside and this may have helped the speed of service.

Steffanie’s Place has become such a firm favourite with us over the many years we have now visited South Africa and Somerset West in particular. The consistency they have achieved with regard to their food offering is nothing short of staggering and they need to be complemented for this. Add to this their amazing location overlooking False Bay and the first class service offered by their team - thanks particularly to Kim today - and it’s a real winning formula. A big thank you from the two of us today for the most perfect lunchtime dining experience. Rest assured we will be back. Alistair & Linda Coy

We had lunch at Steffani's Place for the first time when passing through Somerset West and it was most enjoyable. The food is excellent and the menu caters for vegans and vegetarians. The view is great and the service was very efficient and friendly. Will definitely return!

I had dinner there two nights in a row. Both meals were up there with the best meals I've had this year. Filled steak with a brandy mushroom sauce one night and pork belly with sweet potato fries the next. Both meals were exceptional. Service was outstanding. A real gem!!!

We love this place and always eat here when we are in the Western cape. Once again my food was excellent, although the usually stunning mussels were on the small side this time. And my wife's Fillet was medium rather than medium rare. They did offer to change but we declined.

We had a lovely lunch with friends at Steffenie’s, we were seated on the terrace and enjoyed the wonderful vieuw! The starters were very tastefull and we realy enjoyed the nicely presented food. Two of us had fish with shrimps and two had a filet steak. All were very good! The staff was friendly and helpfull. The coffee was not great, weak and not hot. Next time better! We certainly come back to this nice place!

My husband and I had dinner at Steffanie's recently. It was a beautiful, windless evening so we enjoyed drinks on the terrace with a magnificent view over the Helderberg basin. I had the duck followed by the rooibos and honey panna cotta, while he had the kingklip and chef's special cheese cake. Everything was simply superb! But then one would expect no less of this Somerset West gem! The service was very friendly and very efficient. Steffanie's remains one of the top picks in Somerset West. Very highly recommended!
