Have dined here a few times and have not yet been disappointed with the food or service. Will certainly dine here again. My last visit was with my kids, and they also enjoyed the food and ambiance.

As an international airline pilot, I travel the world and always seek out the best steak I can find at my destinations. Joops Place not only makes the best steak, but also bedt condiments, chips, veggies, sauces, Irish Coffee et al! I still haven't found anywhere better. Price wise its a quarter of overseas pricing, never mind his sauces are... More

We have not been to Joops for about 15 years and went recently when we just wanted a damned good steak. There is no doubt that this is what they specialise in and they are superb. Joop himself is clearly visible in his pristine kitchen, hardly looking up as he creates magic with the sizzling meat. My Minister of Finance... More

The unique appeal of Joop's Place is that Joop (pronounced as 'Yope') selects, buys, prepares and cooks every steak himself. I love my steak and order steak often, and this was still one of the best I've ever eaten. There are other menu options but they are limited. The restaurant itself is quite small and intimate with basic decor and... More

If you likes steaks this is the place for you! Let Joop cook your steak the way it should done. Avondale centre in the north east corner. Enjoy.

My partner and I enjoyed dinner at Joops with our local Durban friends whilst we were visiting from Australia. The steak was beautiful, freshly prepared and cooked to perfection. My only advice would be to skip the entree so you can fully enjoy the steak. Unfortunately I ordered an entree which was delicious but I was then a bit full... More

Whilst I always enjoyed the 'Hollandse Biefstuk' (Pan FrIed fillet with mushrooms in pure butter) I decided to venture off the norm. The minimum 800gram 'T-Bones' must be the best in the Province and if thats too daring then the 'Steak Entrecôte' (Sliced Sirloin) must be close on its heals. I have never experienced a softer Chicken Schnitzel and it... More

we went 2 couples to enjoy a superb piece of meat, the service is good, and the meet is prepared to perfection by the owner, the atmosphere is nice and they have some splendid deserts. The price is definitely on the higher side but worthwhile
