Squires has always been known for it's excellent steaks, but on a recent visit I was disappointed that the food was served lukewarm, on a cold plate although the biltong and avo rump itself was tasty and tender. The manager did offer to take it away and heat it up, but I decined. However, I must say that it was... More

The outside area upstairs of Squires Loft is ideal to watch the light-show during dinner. We ordered starters for 5. Butternut soup was good but could have been served warmer, chicken wings and calamari were all good. Steaks were big and tasty,no complaints here but my daughter and I ordered the Sole. I think it was prepared in the same... More

I could not believe how expensive this restaurant is , much more expensive than what I am accustomed to in Johannesburg for similar fare. The service was very average. The butternut soup to start was good but I requested a medium rare steak which was cooked medium well and not well basted, Not very good value for money

The restaurant has a lovely old-school feel about it and the bar is equally as welcoming. Although service was a little slow and prices were a little high, the steaks were amazing and some of the best we've eaten. The biltong and avo steak was a complete winner. The bar area also has lovely view of the water and light... More

Squires Loft is the average kind of restaurant - nice (as in okay) food, our waitress was a bit clueless, the service is okay, the atmosphere is good. I do have to say, they give five star prices for three star food.

After around 2 years, back in PE on a business visit, I went alone. I remember them well, good steaks, good red wine, one of the first carriers of The Wolftrap. I had some good nights there. They were never over the top expensive nights though. Had a bit of a 'bugger me' moment when I sat down and looked... More

When possible I go to Port Elizabeth every two years or so and Squires is usually the first place I want to go for the fantastic ostrich fillet. Unfortunately, this time I was not impressed. At first the service was fantastic and the starters were great. The mains arrived and were going down a treat. Our guests from London were... More
