The service was excellent, the steak was tender and perfectly grilled. Drinks are a bit expensive though.

If it is steaks your after this is the place to try some. Good seating and good view from the top. Book in advance and get a window seat overlooking the lake and music fountains

My husband and I went to Squires Loft for dinner while attending a conference at Boardwalk Hotel recently. The staff were pleasant,polite but the food was very average. Price was reasonable enough but there was no atmosphere at all in the restaurant. No music, hardly any people eating even though this was a saturday evening. Food was pretty much like... More

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.
