Make no mis-Steak...

Even though this restaurant was started by two great guys as a seafood speciality eatery, their steaks are just 'to die for'. The menu needs about half an hour to thoroughly digest! Such variety, and a page of combo's as well as loads of starters and sweets and speciality coffees! The ONLY meal I... read more

The ambiance, food and professionalism here was outstanding. The service was impeccable with the manager(ess) continuously roaming to ensure service. The outdoor seating (balcony) provided a good outdoor feel albeit over the car park. Highly recommended.

My husband and some of his colleagues go there every year in December for their office year end function. He took me there one Sunday for lunch and the food was great. We sat on the "stoep" and watched the weaver birds build nests while enjoying a drink and the delicious meal. Great atmosphere!

Their meal is to die for and their service is good. It is a perfect place to have lunch with clients.

I absolute love this restaurant! I have been going there for years and will do so for years to come. I have never eaten a meal there that I haven't enjoyed. They have a varied menu which caters for most tastes. They also have a good selection of wines. I have celebrated more than one birthday at Crawdaddys. It's great... More

We have been regulars at Crawdaddy's for several years,mainly due to their wonderful seafood potjies and tender pork ribs at very reasonable prices. The dishes are dependably good and service is always efficient and friendly, even during peak times they will try and help you get seated with a drink in your hand. We have come to depend on Crawdaddy's... More

Looking for Jimmy's Giant Prawn restaurant and found this one here instead. My wife is a connoisseur of seafood, particularly prawns - she was happy and I never had any negative earache on the way home. I enjoyed mine also - win win situation

Always good, never a disappointment. Staff friendly and accomodating, nice crowd and vibe. Almost too many alternatives on the menu which required a lot of nice and fun discussion in the group.

We had a nice dinner. Good service and good food. Bookings required. It is a bit of a noisy place but nice seating on the deck.
