Superb is the only word I can think of. The food was amazing. We were 5 people and we ordered a variety of dishes including Saddle of Lamb, Ribs, Chicken and shanks. Everything was simply stunning including dessert. The restaurant pricing is also value for money considering the owner cooks every dish coming out of the open kitchen. Truly marvellous.... More

A recent return visit to Joops Place efficiently owned and managed by the hospitable Joop and Wendy Mol, reminded me what a delicious menu they have, more than just steaks, and a venue that thankfully has not moved to the distant suburbs of greater Durban, so remains a haven for those in the Berea/Morningside area. Good service is a hallmark... More

Last night my wife and I went to Joops for the 1st time in quite a few years and wondered if it would be the same great food as before. We were not dissapointed. The Hollandse Biefstuk was just as good as we remembered. Tender and tasty. You can always be sure you will get the best steak here.

Joops Place is well worth finding, and even more worth indulging in the pan fried 'super fillet' steaks. To say they melted in your mouth is an understatement. Lovely place with no airs or stuffiness and the focus is simply on the delicious food.

Joop's Place prides itself on exceptional cuts of meat prepared perfectly. Both times we have been the owners have personally greeted us and discussed our meal choices after discussing our personal taste preferences. At first Joop's looks low key and simple, but don't let the decor fool you, the food is of teh best quality.

Delicious range of starters some favorites and including a few unique to this establishment. The mussels are excellent as are the escargot and spring rolls. Pan fried steaks cooked to perfection! Must try: pepper cheese! Divine!

We found Joops Place on TripAdvisor. Great food in a warm atmosphere. Wendy is a great host and Joop a talented chef. A brilliant couple working very well together to create a trendy sophisticated steak experience. We thought our garlic butter steak sauce was to buttery and a new sauce was created in a jiffy - a creamy one. Well... More

We used to go to Stax Steak House in the 80's which was run by Joop and Wendy and it was one of our favourites. Joops Place is now their own restaurant and Wendy still makes you feel very welcome. WOW what an amazing little gem their place is. We consider ourselves regulars already! Whichever way you have your steak... More
