First time at Cynthia's. Great vibe, helpful waiters, meticulous service. Interesting and inspiring decor that sets the right tone without being overwhelming. The starters were more than adequate: calamari heads curry and a salad that was one of the specials of the day. The main course was magnificent with the deboned duck cooked perfectly. My partner did not like the... More

My wife and I recently had an anniversary dinner at the restaurant on recommendation. On booking we were asked if it was a special occasion. We were seated close to the fireplace. Despite it being in the thoroughfare for a great part of the restaurant, the staff brought in guests and passed by without us feeling disturbed. The patrons seem... More

Cynthia's has always been the restaurant to go to for a celebration. Dress up a bit, enjoy the food and atmosphere. I must admit I haven't been in years so it was a huge disappointment to find it doesn't measure up to my memories. The menu items was uninspiring and just old. Nothing new to delight the palate. No new... More

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.
