Gem in the North

Living in the northern suburbs, you do not have much choice for a good meal without driving to the CBD or the winelands. Our Place is one of the few places I frequently visit to get a good mix of a great steak, excellent service and a warm and inviting ambience.

Very friendly service, good atmosphere. My yellowtail was excellent and my wife's calamari very juicy. I asked for a starch replacement salad, which was very bland. Restauranteurs should take note of the low card trend and provide good slternatives. Pleasant experience however.

Been there a few times. 300 gram steak and calamari excellent. And Excellent value. Lots of pride goes into their food and service is good. Never tried their pizza, but according to the manager, its weather dependant as the wood oven is situated outside. So check first. Like its predecessor, Avocado, the menu is limited. I cannot understand why restaurants... More

I love this restaurant - it's the perfect place to break away to in the middle of the day to sit outside under the big Red Gum tree, sipping wine and snacking on a cheese platter while the kids play in the safe play area... And just as nice to break away from the kids at night and sit at... More

The night we went was for a friend's birthday.We sat outside under the fairy lights which gave a special touch to the whole evening. Good service and excellent pizzas. Would definitely visit Our Place again.

I was looking for a place with an outside area to enjoy a Summer lunch and preferably in Durbanville so what luck to find this gorgeous spot! The restaurant is lovely both inside and out, the service was fast and friendly and the food was very good and I thought reasonably priced. We will definitely go back!

Had it not been for TripAdvisor, I doubt we'd ever have gone to this restaurant. It doesn't even look like a restaurant from the road! But I'm glad we went. My friend and I had breakfast there and it was very enjoyable. It's rare that so many things look good that I can't make up my mind but nearly every... More

We had a lovely evening out at Our Place with friends and family. The restaurant has a formal setting, but not to formal that you feel out of place. Greate play area for the kids. Indoor and out door tables. Has this fairy lights in the tree outside. So beautiful. And the food was excellent.

I frequent this restaurant regularly and they have really upped the glam factor recently. The decor is beautiful, the fireplace cosy, the new menu is delicious. The food is presented beautifully and there are quite a number of new dishes worth trying. The waiters are now familiar faces who know the menu well and are very attentive. Also great for... More
