Good food in Somerset West

We enjoyed good food and service at La Romantica, Somerset West. Not cheap, not expensive and good value for money.

The food is ok but not child friendly at all. Reminds me more of a pub than a restaurant.And if you dont like smoke like me. You will really hate the place. I felt like I waisted my money, the food wasnt value for money. There bathrooms are also dirty

Terrible food and mediocre service. Attempts were made to rectify the situation and overall experience, which must be mentioned. But really, there is no excuse for the poor overall quality experienced in a minimally occupied restaurant.

I have often taken my dad here as he loves the slimmers hake with roasted vegetables and I enjoy the understated service and friendly atmosphere. About a month ago we took my dad there for his birthday, I ordered a pork belly, which was done a bit too crispy for my liking. when they asked if everything was okay, I... More

I visted this restuarant on at least 3 occations the past year and had a good meal every time. It is a good choice for a casual lunch and a more formal supper. The food is well prepared and good value. They have a wide variety of food and drink and seem the excel at most types of food.

Both instances we found the food great, pleasant ambiance out on the deck and inside the restaurant! We found it to be good value for our money! Will definitely visit La Romantica Somerset... More

Had dinner there with my wife. Extensive food and wine menu. Had the calamari starter and trio fillet which were both cooked to perfection. My wife had the avacado ritz and pork belly which she also enjoyed. Service and ambiance were excellent. A bit pricy but good nonetheless.

The food is still just okay, but far overpriced. The service was good. ...but the location is bad, and I believe can be very... More

We were part if a very large party so it is difficult to judge. The set menu was good value for money. The service was a little slow but our waiter was helpful and friendly. It is not fine dining but the food is quite nice. I would choose to sit on the balcony if the weather was nice. Inside... More
