Great little restaurant

Theo's Grill is a lovely little restaurant. It has a smallish menu but some of the best of South African food. Well cooked and at a very reasonable price. We visited three times and find it difficult to say which dish is most favourite as all are good. The Catch of the Day and Kingclip are lovely... read more

Theo's remains a favourite in Cape Town and continued to deliver a solid performance during my recent visit. Snappy service, excellent food and a great view, linked with some personal attention, are all included in their winning recipe. The baby Kingklip is highly recommended, although my neighbour's steak looked equally as good. The Sardines is a great choice for starters.... More

We did book last minute, just a few hours before we ate. Our table was to the side of the main restaurant, facing the wall, air con and the side of the coca cola fridge!! Very out of the main buzz of the restaurant which is visible from the street. Our waitress was lovely and friendly and did her best... More

We had two steaks, pepper and blue cheese. Both steaks cooked in some weird balsamico type of marinade first. Baked potato was watery, pumpkin smash watery, spinach freezed and sause to go with potato totally tastless. Bad meal, and when we complained we were told the chef is the king and he does things his way. Pfff.

At present South Africa is experiencing electricity outages and schedules are known well in advance by everyone, so it would have been nice if we were informed at time of booking that there was to be an outage. As we arrived we were informed that there was no electricity but we could have anything on the menu barring chips and... More

We have meant to go to Theos many times, but reading the reviews never actually went. This time we were meeting friends we had not seen in many years and thought we would give it a try. When making reservation we asked for a quiet table if possible. On arrival we were escorted to a small alcove which was perfect... More

I will start by saying the service was fine and we had a helpful waiter. However, the meals were unappealing and not very enjoyable. I had the lamb chops which I asked for medium but were serviced well overcooked. The mash potato was watery and lacked creaminess. However, the worst part about our meal here was when a man with...
