Some really good cuts of meat on display in the fridge though I do not get the fillet wrapped in plastic bundles... While the prices are standard for the location it definitely... More

So me and my buddy (currently visiting South Africa from the States), decided to go out for drinks and we were really spoiled for choice as to which pub, restaurant or bar to go to in the area, as Umhlanga Village is filled with a lot of them. So as recommended by the Hotel we currently staying in (The Oyster... More

Went to have lunch and celebrating a family members anniversary and the guys love steak so we decided to try steak and ale. Waited quite awhile for service, restaurant was not busy but seemed waiters young and new to the job. When food arrived it was delicious steaks were great very tasty . Lovely setting outside fresh air and central.

Decor is great on a buzzy touristy road on the popular Umhlanga strip. Waiter attentive. The menue is meat...meat... And more meat. The food is average though very generous helpings. The vibe is great.
