Unusual location in a mall, not obvious from the outside.
Service was great, very attentive and friendly staff. My husband said it was the best T-bone he's ever eaten. My prawns were delicious. Food arrived very quickly which was a pity because we were enjoying the ambiance.

The food here is always consistently good with great service and a good bar and wine selection.
Sometimes it can get a bit too noisy when it's busy due to the fact that it's one large room and if you find yourself seated next to a large table there's no way to get away from the noise but there are some smaller table around the perimeter.
The decor is modern and chic and despite it being a very large restaurant it stills retains a nice pleasant atmosphere even when full.
I would say I've had better steaks served here than many of the other supposedly 'more famous' steak places around the area.

We were in south africa for our honeymoon. We went to an amazing steakhouse, where lawrence, our waiter served us a great meal and gave us travelling tips! For the entree, we had the sauteed prawns- only 3 prawns in a portions which cost R89 and the taste was just ok. We ordered the sirloin on the bone, we chose 1kg version to share, the meat was great. Done the way we like it with two side dishes. The wine we chose was a shiraz- just a glass which was very good. We had the banana split for dessert, not the typical banana split- they caramelize the banana.
This is a great place in cape town and we will return for sure next time.

Best steak in Cape Town! Was honestly a bit surprised about the location when we arrived, but you forget you are in a mall once inside. Great atmosphere, the place was packed so I recommend a reservation. Our meal was an incredible value for what it was ($120 for 4 with wine pairings).

Now here is a restaurant that has the X factor!!!! The maitre d and owner Victor, Alan and the team were amazing - attentive, friendly and welcoming .
Robyn, Lisa, Ronnie and Helen had the line fish - a piece of fish that was tasty and not small!!!! (Understatement) Meg, Michael and I had the baby chicken - done to a turn - with a side salad and crispy large cut chips on the side. Paul and Nic's had steak with creamy spinach. The food came at the same time - with the waiters and team proud to present.
Next to us were the Cape Stormers and Alan organised a pic with 2 of the springboks.
We came the following night for a light snack - and I had the Kinwa salad ...... wow! What a perfect way to celebrate family!!!!!!
