“Lovely ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 NEW

I spent a very nice Friday evening at Searle's with friends. We were worried that it would be very cold outside, but thanks to the tent and fires, the temperature was very doable.. and the ambiance created by them was lovely, too.

The Tequila Sunrise cocktails were enjoyable, and although it took quite a while before food was served, my chicken wings and crisps were absolutely worth the wait! The meat was so tender it basically fell of the bone. And the aioli.. hmmmmmm! I know it's officially a starter, but I found it very suitable as dinner. For dessert I selected the brownie, which surely was rich!

We spent about 4 hours at Searle's, and I spent R200 for two cocktails, dinner and dessert including tips.. very reasonable (yes I'm a slow drinker). Plus, the live music was definitely a bonus. Thank you Searle's, for a wonderful evening!

“Fun place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Like sitting in a museum. More like a pub with great food - had an excellent thin based pizza and a great cappuccino.

“Eclectic setting, charming atmosphere, great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

It's difficult to describe this restaurant as it is so many different things all beautifully rolled into one. We visited for a show (Luna Paige) and had a throughly enjoyable evening with good food and an amazing vibe! The owner Naomi is a wonderful host and highly entertaining! We plan to return here regularly - it will take a few visits just to see everything this wonderful place has to offer! Thanks Naomi, we love you and your staff!

“Best pizza ever in a great setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

A quirky, fun relaxed setting, excellent service & the best pizza ever- Searle's have perfected the art of a thin based pizza. Great place to watch rugby with a nice crackling fire. Apparently their breakfast is just as good & they are pet friendly - need i say more...

“Food was good but everything else not”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Owner has a temper I recommend she hires a suitable manager if she can't cope - which unfortunately ruined what should've been an enjoyed effort.
