Dont be put off by the location...this place is hidden in a small shopping mall.
Once inside you will receive excellent service and be served top class food.
I had a superb t bone steak. My wife said her beef fillet was the best she ever tasted...believe me there is no higher praise....she is a beef fillet expert.
Thank you to Blessed for excellent service.

This place had already been recommended to us by friends so when we were there we dropped by without prior reservation. We waited a few minutes at the bar and were given a table quickly. The steak was close to perfection, the other food also very good, the service friendly and attentive and the place something we would usually not expect to find in a shopping mall. Definitely a recommendation, even if you are in company of a veggie (the quinoa salad was good and the sides and sauces looked definitely delicious too)!

Situated in the new Checkers Centre, NV-80 is an elegant yet unpretentious restaurant. We were courteously and efficiently seated, then attended by a knowledgeable waiter who assured us that the kingklip was "genuine" kingklip (it was), and explained exactly how their rump steak was aged and prepared. Both were delicious and succulent, served with a medley of cooked vegetables and very good fries.

Particularly pleasing and unusual for South African restaurants was the inquiry by our waiter whether he should remove the empty plates from the table. I find the intrusion of staff who promptly remove any empty plate annoying, and it was a pleasure not to have that happen here.

The only criticism that I have preventing me from giving an Excellent score was the coffee. The beans had been over-roasted, almost burnt, and this detracted from what was otherwise an excellent meal enjoyed by all.

This was unexpected as it is part of a small shopping centre. Ignore that fact. It has a great vibe, good staff & best of all the food is superb. Good value but not cheap.

Just had dinner here. I've had great food all over the world, but this was by far the best fillet I've had. I ordered it with the Gorgonzola sauce and a side of lentils. The desserts we had were incredible as well (creme brûlée and chocolate mousse). And the drinks were perfectly crafted. Highly recommend. So impressed!
