“Excellent as ever. ”
Reviewed 6 April 2017 via mobile

Once again excellent food, Steak, wine and service. Thank you Godfree you did them proud. Rib eye was fantastic and washed down with a lovely bottle of Fat Bas**** Pinotage. This place remains my number one selection for a great evening and the staff are both friendly and professional - well done and once again well deserved.

“Right place for meat eaters”
Reviewed 27 March 2017 via mobile

I had lunch with friends here and it was pleasant; we all had meat dishes and we liked them. My fillet was tender and tasty; service is fine. Good option if you are staying at the Balalaika hotel

“It's fine”
Reviewed 1 March 2017 via mobile

I had to try the Bull Run Burger while staying here and found the experience average. The burger itself was really good , as good as I've had in a specialist burger bar. Unfortunately both the burger and the chips that came with it were luke warm with the bun base soggy.
The atmosphere in the restaurant was good but quite noisy considering it was only half full. The waiters seemed to be working hard and keeping on top of everything and quite attentive. Mid priced establishment that I would try again if in the area but would complain about the temperature !!!
