Yes, this place has won top steakhouse awards and is perceived to be expensive, but after visiting a few steak establishments over the last month, was most impressed with my rib-eye steak. Cooked to perfection and served with flavorsome sweet potato fries. The service was attentive yet unimposing. the wine list comprehensive to complement the meat. The atmosphere excellent; great...

Dear PdpCpt, thank you for your review. The rib-eye is a beautiful cut of meat and it is like butter. Our signature cut (when available) is out Chicago, which is a rib-eye on the bone. Try this one next time. I am glad that you had the experience that we have spent much time and effort on ensuring each guest... More

We arrived at the restaurant at 7:00 PM on a Saturday. The place was booked solid, but we were invited to full meal service at the bar. Almost immediately after ordering an excellent mojito (not too sweet, as they often are elsewhere), we were offered a table . Our waiter, Gulver, was very helpful and attentive. With the regular bread... More

Our Rib eye was superb and they have sweet potato fries which I love, the atmosphere is warm cosy under their outside heaters. The Waiter was extremely friendly and took the time to speak with us about things to do... More

this restaurant is recognised as on of the best on the V&A waterfront. It majors in Steak and has very extensive wine list with wines by the glass or bottle.

Really nice restaurant on the waterfront. We sat outside with heaters and it was lovely and had a great atmosphere. Food was delicious and really good value.

Dear VickyFrancis, so good to read that you had a great dining experience with us. The kebab is a perfect dish to order so that you can try all 3 cuts of fillet, rump and sirloin. Apologies for the service that did not meet your expectations. I will bring this to the manager's attention. Kind Regards, Belthazar More

The setting is busy and vibey. Restaurants has an amazing wine list. A great choice for wine lover. Steaks were served perfectly. Service was impeccable. We sat inside because of the weather but, i think this place in summer would be a true gem. Looking forward to come on our next trip to cape town in a couple of weeks.

We had great service from Gulver, and the food was good, but the chairs were very irritating, and ruined the evening somewhat.
