I've eaten here before and was impressed, but was rather disappointed this time around. The special of Rump with Chorizo and Gorgonzola sauce turned out to be Rump with Biltong shavings & Pepper sauce. All 3 in our party of 10 who ordered this special got the same thing. We didn't complain because we were guests at this business lunch... More

Our favorite restaurant was fully booked so we thought we would give them a try, Such a disappointing night out, Our hostess was dressed in some sort of leopard skin cat suit of some sort, which was totally inappropriate. when i made the reservation i informed them i would be bringing...

The exterior is unremarkable but once you step inside you are in awe of the high ceiling, deep woods with bookshelves and wine bottle decor. A very lovely setting. Reception and service was very professional and friendly. They have a very extensive wine list that is reasonably priced. Starters and entrees were served in a timely, relaxed manner. The food...

We had our year-end function on Friday 5 December and looked forward to a lovely wine&dine experience.We organized for a babysitter to keep our 2 children at home entertained. Unfortunately things quickly went pear-shaped: 1 waitress for a group of 22 people wanting drinks at the same time( not her fault but the manager's) We ordered food from a prebooked... More

Last night we decided to have our year end dinner at Cynthia's, as we did the previous year. The décor and ambience of the restaurant is very pleasant. The Manager and hostess were very attentive and service was good. Unfortunately not the same can be said about all the dishes. We decided to try things on the menu that we... More

When you have a table of 12 it is not easy to get the food to the table hot and tastey. They got that right with starters and mains. I enjoyed the wine and whisky selection. Everyone enjoyed their food, unfortunately my peppered steak was over done which took away from the wonderful taste. As the host I did not... More

We came here for lunch in 2013. The menu was weak and the service was very slow even though there were few customers. The food was bland and at times overcooked. The restaurant needs a new menu and a new chef. How are they going to do that after losing so many clients?

Always lovely, good food and warm atmosphere. Desire an her team are a cut above. This is our choice for special celebrations or just to really spoil ourselves.

The Restaurant is well situated next to Brooklyn mall with it own under-cover parking area at the back of the building. I arranged a year end function for my company of 15 people. Cynthia's has a lovely private room that caters for approx 20+ people comfortably. For parties less than 20 people they have a R85 X charge for the... More

We invited our friends for dinner. We tried two other restaurants, but both where fully booked, so Cynthia's was our third choice. Having dined there previously, we expected a lot. When we arrived, we where virtually alone in the restaurant on a Saturday night, peak time. The service was friendly, but the lady presenting their specials was not totally sure... More
