I went to Joops Place for a birthday dinner after hearing many people raving about the food..it definitely did not disappoint! I had the Joop's Special which was literally the best steak that I have ever had. My brother ordered the pepper steak and said he could not eat another steak ever again, as it would not match how delicious... More

Not easy to find, but absolutely worth it ! Joop personally cooks all the steaks - with passion (if he is not there, the restaurant is not open), and you pick them out yourself before preparation. Very good wine selection of South Africa's always increasing number of top wines (mainly red here, of course). Great personal service. Go there, try... More

What can be said about Joop's that has not already been said? This place is legendary. You want a proper steak made with passion and love then you need to get down to Joops Place in Durban. A quaint small restaurant with a hell of a lot of atmosphere and sensory flavour. A large variety of choice on meat dishes,... More

This is probably one of the best steak houses I've ever eaten in. The venue is unpretentious. The staff are wonderful and the food is cooked by the owner of the restaurant who is from The Netherlands. During dinner, the six of us were almost speechless getting through our steaks. They were that good. I would go back here in... More

Just had a memorable meal out with my son. Loved the service and good food. Would recommend Joops to anyone serious about meat but chilled about old style decor. Very good experience.

Joops place never seems to fail me. The food was delicious as usual and the service was spot on. The owners run a tight ship and manage to always be so professional and efficient. Wonderful place to go for a wonderful meal.

Last night we had a wonderful evening. The owners and their great team made us feel very welcome. Service was efficient. The best part was the food! I had a steak, cooked to perfection with mushroom sauce that actually tasted of lovely mushrooms! Highly recommended
