“Best steak ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We were a group eating out for business. Had visitors from Holland. They enjoyed it. The food was excellent. The steak was very soft and tasty. Good service. Good creme brulee. Will come back next time.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Regularly eat here and in my view the best and most consistent quality and service that I have experienced of any restaurant. Definitely my first choice in Bloemfontein... And for that matter anywhere!

“Excellent Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

My wife and I spent one night in Bloemfontein on a trip and went to this restaurant for dinner on the recommendation of the hotel at which we stayed. The food, wine list, decor etc were all good, but we were particularly impressed by the service. Although the place was very busy, our waitress was friendly and attentive. When it came time for the bill, the manager (a member of the Albanian family who own the business) noticed that our waitress was busy elsewhere, introduced himself and dealt with the bill.

“Divine lamb shank”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We had a lovely meal with very good service. I had a lamb shank, it was a very generous portion and fell right off the bone. The wine list was sufficient and the pricing fair for an upscale restaurant. The noise level is at a minimum even though it was almost full. The creme brulee for dessert was average, but also an average price. Overall a place I would definitely recommend.

“best steak in south africa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant holds its position on trip advisor for good reason! I have never had such a melt in the mouth steak as the steak diane! And the sauce on the jack daniels steak is divine- I would perhaps combine the fillet steak with the jack sauce. Yummy! Hope they maintain the great standard they have set!
