Accompanied by two "old" friends, we visited Cynthia's as part of our traditional "once a month" visit to a different restaurant. We were in full agreement that the food was very tasty and well presented. I ordered their "Hake Ceviche", Johan chose a combo - half a spatchcock chicken and a half portion pork ribs and Rob ordered their "Sole... More

The last time I visited this restaurant was 10 years ago and I have to say I found it even better than it was before. The decor is different, with books and bottles of wine neatly displayed on shelves which gives a 'rich' feel. What I really liked about Cynthia's was that even though the restaurant was busy, it was... More

We had dinner 3 persons and got very good service. The wine we wanted was initially not available from the right vintage but they found a remaining bottle somewhere and it was fantastic - well done. Rump steak was perfect and risotto as well. Good deserts However, Crepe Suzettes should be flambed at the table and not in the kitchen

Being married for 43 years require a treat of ourselves. We decided on Cynthias and were not disappointed. As a start you can get save parking under roof and proper security so you don't need to be concerned about that aspect. The menu had various starters of high quality. We had Springbuck Dry Meat with a tasty sauce. Main meal... More

I called the restaurant to find out if they were affect and I was assured at least twice that they were "not affected at all". I didn't want to get into semantics and gave them the... More

Was there for an uncomplicated dinner with a former colleague on a Saturday night (after rugby match). The Bulls' win might have influenced the enjoyment.... the half empty room didn't bother us. Found the setting really excellent. Service was also outstsnding. We opted for game dishes. Both starters and mains were very good.
