“Super steaks at a great price in a outdoor venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We loved this place and returned 5 times! It is right across the courtyard from the hotel we stayed at, the African Pride Melrose Arch. Being from the USA, we are used to good steaks but at hefty prices...these were less than half what we would pay and they were very tender and flavorful. We sampled some of the other food...prawns and calamari and pasta dishes, but we always returned to the steaks--especially the fillet or T-bone. Good wine at reasonable prices. The service was a bit spotty, but not bad. Great outdoor seating (and people watching) under a big canvas, but they also have indoor dining. The courtyard or square also has a big video screen which shows big soccer games and it was fun to join the cheering.

“anyone for steak”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Nice seating area to enjoy the weather. The meal was only OK steak was over cooked. The male staff member was disinterested in his job with was obvious from the time we sat down. A smile could assist with a better customer experience.
