Went to Squires because hotel confirmed that they were prepared for blackout. I ordered the fried haloumi cheese and enjoyed it thoroughly. As a main course I ordered lamb cutlets with a salad and creamed spinach. This was exactly as expected and I can suggest people to visit Squires Loft.

Excellent food in a nice location, but it could easily be 'upgraded' to a more upmarket restaurant by adding table-cloths etc. The ostrich served with a blackberry compote is the best I have had anywhere.

My wife and I visited this restaurant on the last day of our holiday. Wife had hake and chips after the sole she wanted, which is on the menu, hasn't been in stock for over six months. I had a fillet with mushroom sauce. Both meals were okay but nothing fantastic. We will NOT be going back when we return... More

A bit too formal for my tastes with its cigar lounge feel and dark wood interior, Squire is known for its well-prepared cuts of meat, of which I can vouch. In addition, what delighted me was the Mitchells beer the restaurant serves on tap. It was a great accompaniment to my beer.

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

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
