Great Steaks

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

My wife and I had a quiet dinner we shared a starter of sardines and had a main each. 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.

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.

This place is legendary - Its always the first restaurant I visit when in Cape Town. The steak is a must and in my experience has always been served perfectly. Try the roast potatoes instead of the chips they're delicious. The service is always excellent. If you're lucky enough to get a window seat you'll enjoy a nice view of... More

A casual visit just for a delicious coffee in a beautiful setting overlooking the ocean or a meal, the Theo's grill & seafood in Mouille Point Cape Town you do want to experience. Civilised Emily Post Etiquette, clean tables, fabric serviettes, non-greasy salt and pepper shakers, groomed Waitrons. Lovely sized portions of food, visually appetising, tasty, as ordered, great value... More

My wife and I live in the area, so we decided to try Theo's. I'm not really one to complain, but the whole evening left a lot to be desired. My wife ordered the prawns and ribs. The prawns were not fresh, they were very floury! I ordered the surf and turf combo (calamari and steak). I got no tartar... More

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation of a friend. Our waitress must have been having a bad day as she was not so forthcoming. We had to ask for many things and they were not delivered. Food was not that great and to be frank, I would avoid this place. Do not waste your time.

I was a little flabbergasted at the amazing output provided by Theos. Their avo biltong steak was sublime, which my friendly waiter, I think his name was Aaron, assured me would be a winner, thank god I listened. The food was amazing, the location at sunset was fantastic, and overall it was a really positive experience.
