“Business Meeting Dinner”
Reviewed 15 February 2017 via mobile

Set menus was delightful. Starters where served as platters for the table giving you the ability to sample all on offer. Main course was a choice of meat, calamari and a vegetarian dish. The Rump I ordered was done to perfection. The veggies where very tasty. To top it off we where treated to a tour of the kitchen and a quick lesson in different ways to cook meat. The guide has a real passion for food and what he does. The service and atmosphere was exceptional. Highly recommended if you want a good night out with fantastic food

“Best steaks in town and more”
Reviewed 24 January 2017

I always go back here to recalibrate. The steaks are great, but there's much more on the menu worth having, including the calamari and heads. The sauces are excellent - try the trio of sauces for variety, but the steaks can really be eaten straight off. Desserts are excellent - again the trios are worth having. A fine wine list. Highly recommended.
PS: ask for the tour behind the scenes.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 7 January 2017 via mobile

Amazing food with generous portions. My wife and I shared the grass fed filet and the ostrich. This was the best steak I ever had and the mashed potato and onion ring sides were great additions. The ostrich was really good, too! Our server, Filippe, was very knowledgeable and helped us make a few choices that we really appreciated. He guided us through the menu and ensured we had a good time. Great service and great food. I would definitely recommend this place.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 29 December 2016

We had dinner for the second time at the local grill in early December. It was awesome. We booked the wine room as we were a Party of 10 People. Overall, this was exceptional. Service, Food and of course the tour of the kitchen all very nice. My favourite filet on the bone:-) Can't wait for my next visit.
