Got there by accident, but it was a lucky one, had massive fillet steak, which was excellent. Actually I took a portion to share, but I like my steaks so it was absolutely fine for me ( I was struggling at the end a little bit but finally managed) !! Service was very well trained and attentive, wine was well... More

Quality of food varies greatly from visit to visit and between locations. Frankly the family oriented Spur chain offers a better value for money.

I went to eat with my colleagues the other night..the service was nice and fast..the only reason I don't give 5 stars is because in a Steak house you can't afford to run out Fillets and the beginning of the evening!!!! The manager has been very kind and offered the 5 of us the coffees and cappucini at the end... More

We ordered line fish and beef tongue. The fish was of the bland tasting 'six-month-in-freezer-quick-defrost' variety, and the tongue was tough and covered with a thick floury-like mushroom concoction. The tasteless tongue was totally overshadowed by the sauce. To crown it all, the staff was making it very clear that they want to close the shop and that we had... More

Just a poor restaurant - everything poor, poor service, poor food - just one of those restaurants that slip into oblivion. Actually somewhat surprised they are still open - Fourways is pretty competitive.

I ordered a medium prego roll and asked for 'well done' chips plus mayonnaise on the side. Prego roll was more rare than medium, chips were medium and the mayonnaise only arrived after asking for it three times when I was almost finished with my meal. As was my drink for most of thrones time without any waiter asking if... More

For the first time I got such a below par service. From the salads to main course. The portions have been reduced. The basic chicken livers were salt less and watery. The pork ribs were not succulent they were some what dry. Thr traditional Karoo source was minimal if non existence at all. Overall the standard has dropped drastically. The... More

We have visited this restaurant many times and each time have experienced excellent service and food. The servings are generous and well plated. The atmosphere is also great - soft unobtrusive music. Definitely value for money.

Food and service was as expected. Food didn't take much time to show up. Medium rare was actually medium rare. Ambience was nice. I'm glad we went there.
