I love the ambience of the setting especially in their dinner. Centrally located, just off the main highway and easy exists too. The waiters are very professional and friendly. The menu is clearly visible and what you see on the picture is what you get. You have to try their wine selection too. I personally recommend their steak which is nothing but A-cut grade and top quality.

Try as I have so often to give this steakhouse another chance, but no more.

Staff are great and service is excellent but food just doesn’t make the grade.

I like my steak medium yet it usually arrives rare and cold! It gets sent back and returns smelling of gas or similar. I have no idea what method they use to cook but it makes all the steaks taste alike.

My apologies to the proprietor but you have great staff, wonderful decor, a superb location but the steak just doesn’t cut it from my experience.

I travel back to SA from time to time and tell friends to meet if they can. I arrived without a reservation and got a table for 10 set up with no problems. The service was great and the food was very good. My only disappointment was when at 22:10 they told us the bar was closing at 22:15. I found this quite early if you dine at 20:30 or 21:00 for the bar to close. However, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We booked a table for 5 people lunch time 13h00.
We arrived to find the restaurant not very full which was a bit surprising.
Between us we ordered beef ribs,and different steaks 200-300 grams,chips,onions and sides as vegetables spinach.
The meals were enjoyed by all,along with a good selection of desserts and coffee.
The service was good,a steak restaurant well worth a visit,as a tourist not to expensive,for a local not cheap.
