Good Service and surprising good food

Had a group lunch here - service from William, Cedric and team in the restaurant was great - big smiles and very helpful. Starters were great and the kitchen was good at keeping on time. Main course was great - but I think some of their items are a bit overpriced.some of the desserts went wrong... read more

Mediocre restaurant. Lacks ambience. Average food at above average prices. Very disappointing experience!

The service is excellent, especially when managing big groups. Quite varied options in the bar, both local and international beers and liquors. The 1920's music is good but may be tiring after a while. Nice Hemingway memorabilia. Try the srpingbok!

Interesting menu, well prepared food, great service and those little extras, such as a pallet cleansing sorbet between courses, makes this a restaurant not to be missed. A tad bit more expensive than a meal at the local steakhouse but definitely worth it. Portions for the mains are a bit small but this is made up for by a fairly... More

Just relocated in Centurion I was desperately looking for a classy restaurant in the area where to bring my Chairman. Carefully looking to trip advisor I selected Hemingways not really expecting much. I was nicely surprised about the atmosphere but more about the food. We were both Italian so we went a little bit sceptical about the food quality. But... More

If used to styles outside sa then a little dated but the quality of the food is excellent as is the service. Expensive by sa standards but not overly so for what one receives Smaller portions but good variety Good wine Bit posh so expect that type of service. Would go again Great evening

Restaurant was empty but, the food and wine was amazing, but the service was a bit to relaxed. I asked the waiter what he would recommend and he said everything was good.

Hemingway's is a real gem: a respectable almost-fine dining establishment in Centurion, which has long suffered from a dearth of viable fancier options for a good night out. I'll spare you the lengthy review: suffice to say, Hemingway's is good. Really good. Excellent food from a varied and interesting menu, an extensive and reasonably priced wine and spirit selection, and... More

I'm a regular visitor for lunches and have got to know the staff. Michael and William, the waiters are brilliant and the chefs come and share tips with me as I'm a keen cook. I really enjoy this place. Sometimes the food can be a bit up and down, but it's always a lovely time and mostly very good

Had high expectations seeing as it has won Best Fine Dining Restaurant in SA, 2011 and 2012 - seems like a lot has changed since then. I expected fine dining but experienced poor service, mediocre food and lack of any ambiance (luckily the company was good). Had it not been out of respect for our client who hosted us there,...
