“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We had some lovely meals here, but were concerned about the service, while eating, a lady on the table next to us, asked for Orange Juice, and was served Fruit Juice, she asked the waiter to change it, and he went off, never to return, she tried to call a waiter, who all ignored her, eventually she walk over to the desk, and walked back with another waiter, she explained to him, and at the end of the conversation, which she was getting nowhere with, she asked to see the manager, to which the waiter replied "Whatever", not the thing to say. The manager did arrive, and sorted things out, but not a good PR for this restaurant.

“Excellent as ever. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago 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”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 weeks ago 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
