I was treated with friendly waiters and divine food. I was treated like a valued customer. I will go there again as i enjoyed my dinner. I recommend this establishment for everyone and you will get treated like royalty.

Service: Appalling; Food: Borderline inedible; At a function, they placed shellfish on every platter, this ensuring that at least 5 people could not eat a thing. When this was brought to their attention, I was presented with a platter of...wait for it...deep fried Vienna sausages cut into 10 cm pieces! Although waiters at the function were friendly, they were quite... More

Fabz is a great venue in the hart of Lonehill, staff are friendly and helpful, the food at the restaurant was average and the selection is not wide enough. Well catered for young families with plenty of play area for kids.

6 "girls" travelled from Zimbabwe for the Bon Jovi concert. We were very impressed with all aspects of Fabz Estate Hotel. The staff were friendly and made our stay so much more enjoyable. The breakfasts were absolutely fabulous! An all round thumbs up from the Zimbos.

The venue is amazing for a suburban/country venue. I believe it is good on the weekend however my family and I had a horrible experience. The food was average and I had to send my R149.00 fillet back because they cooked it well done and it was dry. I order med rare. By now we forgave this because of the... More

I was shocked to see such bad comments on a place that I frequent and honestly believe is an undiscovered gem for young families. The only fault I can find with the place is in their marketing. Myself and my partner often go there for a long lunch by the duck pond or early dinner with friends, then even though... More
