My husband and I ate here based on trip advisor as we were both craving some nice red meat- I wanted a filet and he wanted to be adventurous and try some game meat. We were both super pleased with the food, service, and ambiance. The mixed game kabob hit the spot for him and my filet bernaise was cooked... More

After eating in the Camps Bay Hussar Grill (see separate review), when in Stellenbosch there was no question of where to eat. Early Friday night the restaurant was packed out and as we hadn't booked all they could offer was two seats at the bar which we gladly accepted. The Chateaubriand was amazing as was the steak kebab which had... More

I visited here with family while traveling around South Africa and had a very enjoyable experience. The restaurant is all about what South Africans love, steak. I enjoyed Bushman's Kebab which was essentially three different steaks on a skewer with potatoes and vegetables on the side. I would highly recommend this choice to anyone visiting. In terms of value for... More

Great atmosphere, good service, fantastic steaks! This place is the best in town! Period. We ordered steaks and a bottle of red wine. Our food arrived within 10 minutes and not even our chatty female neighbour and her family could spoil our mood!

Very nice and cozy restaurant, with friendly staff and fast service. But I had expected more of the food and a bit more input from staff on the wines. Steak was lukewarm when served, which the staff immediately fixed and also compensated with a complimentary (delicious) dessert, but still... Lots more potential both on flavors and presentation. Overall, a safe... More
