Although they specialize in grills, I had a lovely trout. Served by the very experienced, professional and attentive Eddie.

Every time we've eaten at The Godfather we've had such delicious food and been served by incredibly well trained and polite waiters. I highly recommend the chocolate chilli fillet and mash!

You will not find a better steak anywhere in South Africa. The service is excellent, the atmosphere fantastic and the food unbeatable in quality. Genourous portion size. We've been going to this restaurant for the last 20 years and have never been disappointed.

Centurion's premiers steakhouse, and deservedly so. Great pepper and mustard-encrusted steak, great onion rings, and not that expensive. Overly intrusive and in-your-face waitrons can be a bit much though. I don't want to become your friend just because you're serving me.

We have lived in the area for years and never been there. Looked for a recommendation on trip advisor and the reviews were all good. They lived up to every one. The food was excellent, the service matched and the price wasn't excessive. What more can you say? Go hungry, their portions are large and the steak is great.

Steaks and ribs, that's all I can think about when I hear the word Godfather. You can't go wrong with either, they're done to absolute perfection

I checked the reviews on Tripadvisor before deciding on The Godfather. They had very good reviews, so we decided to try them. Food was great and service excellent. Not the cheapest restaurant, but the quality if food equals the price you pay. We can really recommend them.

We had a great time at the Godfather. The service was excellent, with the waiter making wonderful meal and wine recommendations. The food was exceptional and even though the one-ways around the restaurant make it tricky to access, we will definitely be back.
