I took a client here for a "business" lunch. The setting is very upmarket. The food was absolutely superb and the service was great. The wine which the maitre 'd recommended was probably the best merlot I've ever had. Can't wait to go back. There are so many items on the menu I want to try, knowing they are going... More

Very good service, excellent food, romantic atmosphere and beautiful restaurant. My fiance had the Impala fillet and myself had the wild boar. Both were extremely tasty. In between we were given a bite size salmon on toast snack and a strawberry sorbet pallet cleanser. Both delicious. Thank you for a great experience.we will be back. Ilze & Jose

Arrived to celebrate a birthday and waited to be seated and to be served. The service was terrible as no waiter was allocated to our table and when we eventually did get service the incorrect orders arrived what felt like ages afterwards. Not only did the floor manager state the specials incorrectly but wasn't aware of a dish on the... More

Had a wonderful dinner at Cynthias last night. Booked a table at 20:00 for 21:00 and were seated near the fireplace. The service was great with a very good red wine (organic) to go with the meal. Throughout we were treated to complimentary drinks between the starters and main course. I had the venision (game meat) of the day -... More

Still a firm favourite for functions or celebrations. We celebrated a graduation and shortly after that Mothers day. Both events were wonderful with great food,personal attention from the chef/owner and an attentive waitress. Extensive wine list with most wines by the glass. Loved the finer touches of amuse bouche and sorbet in between courses.

This is a popular restaurant, a bit on the expensive side, but really worth it. The menu has a good selection, but in my view the steaks are the best! Good selection of wines to choose from, but the house wine is perfectly acceptable.

My wife and I went to Cynthia's for a mid-week meal and were seated immediately on arrival and without a reservation. Note.... parking could be a problem on weekends, however, there is a large shopping centre close by (Brooklyn) with ample parking. The greeting was warm and friendly and the list of the evenings "specials" was well articulated. We ordered... More

I took my wife to Cynthia's on valentines day. The atmosphere and service of Cynthia's was outstanding, but the food was very much below standard. Due to the very limited special menu on valentines day, I had the steak for main course, which was a big disappointed. The starters was good and desert excellent, but overall the food was a... More

Very classy place with a great wine list. The food is perfect, and beautifully presented. Unlike many meat and potato places, the sides are very nicely done, and the salads are fantastic enough to stand on their own. The ingredients are top notch and the flavors always just right. There's a nice variety of offerings on the menu and it... More

As far as the food goes, I have no complaints. I've tried the prawns and the Cynthia's fillet and thought they were both excellent. The restaurant also has a comfortable bar area with couches which I really like. While the wine list is pretty good in terms of its selection, the prices are rather absurd, even by restaurant standards. I... More
