The meal was colder than I would have liked and there was no hint of chilli in the Chocolate Chilli Fillet. The plate was also a bit greasy around the edges. Service was also left wanting as the waiter was... More

Always consistent quality - food and service. We always eat at Godfather when we come back from abroad as they really offer brilliant South African Steak. Janet (the owner) knows and greets us, and many of her other regulars by name. The personal service just adds to a great dining experience.

Undoubtedly the best quality steak available. Prices have continued to rise when other restaurants have been holding their prices in a difficult economy. Sometimes you just have to pay extra to get the best.

Went there in the middle of the weak and was surprised at the amount of people dining there. The reason quickly came as the service and food was very good. Had the Ribs platter with beef, lamb and pork ribs. Was some of the best ribs i ever had.

We have been going to The Godfather for more than 25 years. We love their service and we enjoy the food most of all.
