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. Love this place and come here every time I come... read more

My usual restaurant when in Cape Town, booking made etc. Gave very specific instructions, not once but twice to the waitron. The steak arrived cooked and covered with the wrong sauce . Sent it back , replaced with the correct order. Had enough of pretentious restaurants , overpriced and over rated. Won't see me again there .

I really loved this spot. The food is excellent and never had a bad meal here. The steaks are great, Seafood also high quality dish. The service is excellent! It's the kind of spot that draws you back again and again.

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

I had the flame grilled chicken and my wife a chicken salad, both of which were good but not quite what we were expecting. The chicken was a little dry and slightly over done for my liking. 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.
