Excellent restaurant - Great steaks and burgers; fish excellent as well

I have been to Theo's three times now and every time, I have not been disappointed. From the well seasoned steaks, to the huge burgers and to the fresh nicely fried fish, it was been a great experience. Not to mention the very nice seaside views.

The location is nice but it doesn't make up for the poor, slow service and overpriced food. I had prawns, they weren't great and quite expensive, a friend had chicken schnitzel which was described as average and the third had barbequed chicken which made her ill later that evening. There are much better places to dine for a much more... More

Have been visiting this restaurant for many years, always consistently great steaks, ditto Kingklip fish. Low staff turnover, always friendly service, try to arrive in time for the sunset

The service was exceptional... More

We had a great meal at theo's (grilled springbok and grilled karoo lamb loin chops) lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff. Beautiful views of the sea and we were lucky enough to see whales.

Great Location on the Three Anchor Bay beachfront with tables on the verandah to take in the sunset and watch the people strolling the promenade.

I have been past this place over the years but disliked the big neon sign, that put me off! A friend took us there and I was surprised how pleasant it was, good food and nice steaks. Will return next year.
