Hands down the best steak I've had. Delicious seafood as well – all very reasonably priced. Charming staff and an amazing view – Theo's is the place to be this summer. Great for a special dinner, or a date.

I can't speak for the food at Theo's as we left before we received ours when I noticed that one of the cooking staff in the open plan kitchen was munching on an off cut of raw meat with his hands. He clearly didn't see how it might be a health hazard to be preparing people's food with hands he... More

I grew up in Mouille Point a few minutes walk from Theo's and already then over 20 years ago Theo's was one of the best restaurants in the area. And things havent changed. I come back to Cape Town at least once a year and a visit to Theo's is always on the agenda and so far I have never... More

Went with family two of whom are vegetarian. Need to book as place was packed. Lot of locals eat here which is always a good sign. All meals were superb, wide choice and a particular mention of our waitress Bregita who was smiley, cheerful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and we are quite a demanding group. She is...

I often frequent Theo's when looking for somewhere along the promenade, that offers value for money and great service. The waiters are extremely familiar with the menu and can recommend based on what you feel like. With a bottle of wine between friends and the most delicious steak, Theo's offers a very comfortable and happy environment to meet over a... More

Good location, good service, good fish, excellent steak. I thought having been on a vegetarian kick for a while might have made it so good, but my husband said it really is that good. Not ideal for a romantic night out, the place is just too busy. The portions are a good size so while the prices seem a bit... More

I'm glad I went hungry because my oh my it was worth the wait. The steak was on a league of its own - try it with the mushroom sauce, so good! And affordable! A great selection of wines too. The waiter was really helpful and willing (we changed our order, as there there were too many great choices!). We... More

We had a great day at the restaurant. The food was great and not greasy at all since most seafood restaurant has a tendency to make to creamy. My Friends enjoyed it that much also.
