Went there on Sunday 4th of May for a family lunch, what a disappointment. Poor service, poor food, whole restaurant, bar area and toilets area dirty, cutlery dirty, not at all La Romantica standards. Sorry to say but we wil not be back.

I always experience a relaxed atmosphere at La Romantica. The staff is friendly and helpful and let you feel special. The food is stunningly fresh and nicely presented. I will recommend La Romantica always!!!!

Very friendly, helpfull and good value for money. Would recommend La Romantica. I like the idea of being able to take your own wine and pay corkage.

When we turned up with our baby, they made us as comfortable as possible, the service is excellent and friendly and the food always superbly tasty. The view over the parking lot is maybe not the best in the world, but gaze a little further and the view includes the magnificent Helderberg.
