Worse food in SA this trip

I come to visit my family every year and this time we went there for my birthday. It was the worse food!!! Neither of the three steaks were done like we asked. The chips was cold and oily and the fish was way below average. It cost us a lot of money that day and I didn't even want to... read more

The atmosphere is perfect, food is great and staff is friendly and helpful. For instance we asked whether we should order a plate for one or for two the waitress recommended: "Don't worry, the plate for one will be enough for you guys". In another restaurant they would suggest us the plate for two in order to make more business... More

Visit their restaurant with family from out of town this holiday season. Service was non-existent and when we informed the owner he was exceptionally rude. We are local and will never advise any visitors to visit this restaurant anymore

Arrived at 5:30pm, only the second table occupied, ordered our food by 6pm. After 90min we just could not take waiting any longer and complained to the manager. He did not even apologise but argued we had only been waiting for 50min, which according to him is an acceptable 'wait' at Tapas and we should really be patient! My wife... More

Tourism Meet & Greet - well organised function by Tapas and the food was excellent, enough and well prepared. I will recommend Tapas for informal functions.

We visited twice during October 2014. The seafood is really good and the price was fair. We both had the single platters which were on special and will probably have them again. What we didn't enjoy, though, was, on both occasions, the level of service. It was as though the waiters/ waitresses just ignored us and other diners also complained... More

We visited on a Monday night and expected it to be quiet - which it was when we arrived early - luckily we received our food while we were the only patrons as from 19:00 the place filled up rapidly - including one large table of motorbikers. As we were the only people there we got very good service and... More

Arrived and had to wait to be seated. Everyone around us was served and had eaten their food while we waited patiently for our food to arrive. It eventually did...90 mins later and the food was mediocre at best! Will never go back there again. PS. The old racist South African flag should have been a warning that they were... More
