I had dinner here a few weeks ago because an associate of my family set us up here, and, I have to say, I enjoyed this new experience. For starters, the waitress that worked on our table was really nice and personable. She tried to recommend something to me, and I sort of wished I had listened to her. As... More

Had dinner and a very good dinner it was too. Lovely steaks, and great service (well trained staff - well done). However, by 2145 they were onto last orders for drinks which seemed a little early, but all in all a very good experience. Not cheap....

I finally went into Peli Peli for the first time, and the food was spectacular! I loved the atmosphere, and I think it was one of the best meals I've ever had. Our server Rachel offered amazing service and took excellent care of us! It bothers me when servers are slow to respond the table, but despite the size of... More

I was in town for a business meeting, and had a wonderful dinner at Peli Peli. Our waiter was very attentive, spending a lot of time explaining the menu & making recommendations. We sampled a variety of appetizers including the bobotie, biltong and stuffed mushrooms. All were served hot and delicious! For our entrees, we tried the steak, sea bass,... More

I have eaten here quite a few times and have come to favor the Espetada and the Garlic peppercorn steaks as they almost melt in your mouth. These steaks are flavorfully seasoned and are very tender. Someone in our party ordered the Surf and Turf meal and loved it. The prawns that come with this meal are wonderful and huge... More
