Good value

Ate here twice with colleagues from around the world. Food was good- oysters were excellent (told they were from Namibia)- seafood was fresh and generous in portions - beer and wine selection was extensive with moderate pricing- service varied from good to inattentive. Would still return!

This place was so good we went back two nights running. It is not about posh fine dining but the food is excellent, wholesome, well priced and the portions are enormous. The menu is extensive and well thought out.

Crawdaddys always provides generous portions, but the food is always well cooked, and excellently flavoured. I had the oxtail with butter beans and basmati rice...the bones were left white in my plate! Only one observation...no black waiters?

When we lived in Pretoria we went there regularly - enjoying the view from the terrace through the Jacaranda trees across to the Bird Sanctuary - a bit of country in a bustling town. So a visit on a return to the once capital city was a reminder that here, a 'bord kos' - a plate full of food is... More

Whenever we can't reach a decision whether to opt for a steak house or seafood speciality restaurant, Crawdaddy's never fails to satisfy either or both preferences. While there, we usually indulge in both meat and seafood varying the latter across starters and main courses. Our favourite starters range between the Nachos, Crawchows, Chicken Livers and Moroccan Beef Strips, although it... More

I'm from the UK and it was my second opportunity to eat here and it was every bit as good as the first. We shared Capraccio and Calamari followed by steaks. I had the Steak Rossini and it was fab. For the price I can't recommend this place high enough. Good service too.

My 3rd visit to this eatery and, again, we were not disappointed. The place has a fantastic vibe and setting and all foods are really reasonably priced. Probably some of the best steaks, curry and rice and burgers we have enjoyed in a long time. Staff are efficient and, despite it always having been relatively full we have never waited... More
