One glass of red wine at R 90 per glass is ridiculous. A ripoff. The food is not bad at all but you do not get much on the plate thus you end up paying R 160 plus for a main course and you need a sandwich when you get home. Th place need a vacuum and a wash as... More

I'm not one for sharing my experiences after dining out, but after my excellent Sunday lunch over the weekend... well, it was hard to keep it to myself! The food was simply delicous and great value for money, while we really enjoyed the Jazz band. I also can't speak highly enough of the attentive manager, Justin, as well as our... More

Very embarrassing - we went out for a birthday dinner at 5 Rooms. The meal was ok but I was drinking Red Bull and Vodka. But guess what Vodka they served? - Not your normal run of the mill vodka but Belvedere Vodka which I obviously did not specify. Obviously, this cost a fortune and was really off sides as... More

Thank you for the review. It is not our policy or intention to extort money from our guests in any way. It was honestly not your waiters intention to upsell to a premium product to increase revenue or earnings. I apologise that this incident has left such a bad impression of our restaurant and service. Upon investigation, I was assured... More

We sent back the lamb dish as it was mostly uncuttable fat. The ricotta (served in excess) was a tasteless mound of cheese. Tje ingredients didn't work together at all. The pork belly was chewy and both main meals were over-priced. The onion tart starter was lovely, but the calamari start was tasteless. The hostess Lydia kindly offered to refund... More

Our friends had heard this was a good place for luncheon so we joined them for a meal. The drive and the building are imposing, the dining rooms, of which there are 5 (unsurprisingly seeing as its name is 5 Rooms) are wood panelled and covered in paintings. The crockery, glasses, and cutlery are elegant, the seating comfortable and the... More

Had an excellent meal at this restaurant. It was very pricey but worth it for the live band and excellent food.

The 5 Rooms restaurant is a classy yet chilled environment with excellent food wonderful ambience. Today they have a jazz trio that features Nick Williams and they're very good, the atmosphere is sophisticated. The fireplace is effective and welcoming, especially with the current cold and wet weather.

Had dinner on a very cold Saturday night and we were lucky to receive a table right in front of the fireplace in one of the "rooms". This made the wife purr like a kitten :-).

A lovely hidden gem! We went on a Thursday evening where they had a live jazz band. The smaller rooms and decor make for a great atmosphere. Crisp white table linen, good service and good food. I would definitely go back!
