“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

As soon as you walk inside it feels you are somewhere else in Africa,
the ambiance, the waiters, the all place looks like time has stop.
Service was perfect, we had amazing steaks and really nice vegetables,
the creamy spinach were the best.
I've been recommended to Wombles and I will definitely go back and
I recommend the place 100%

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

I visited this restaurant with a friend and his friends. The price was not cheap, but the quality for the price was perfect. I had eaten in Nelson Mandela square most of my time on this trip and the price here is much cheaper for more than 100% better quality (and there was nothing wrong with Nelson Mandela square).

I had a Springbok, it was great. This you cannot get on the Square. The service was there, or was it. I hardly noticed a waiter but everything was delivered on time, glasses filled and you hardly noticed them. Excellent job.

I would recommend this restaurant anytime, from this one experience.

“Steaks with a hint of elegance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Discreet efficient service. Varied menu combining tried and trusted staples with some slightly imaginative dishes, which should satisfy any carnivore. (Hint: don't expect to impress any vegetarians). Settings and atmosphere are conducive for meetings and group dinners.

“Steakhouse with a difference”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Wombles has been constantly one of my most favorite restaurants in Johannesburg over the last 15 years. I never miss the opportunity to let myself be spoilt by the fabulous food and service. Make sure to go there whenever you are in Johannesburg. You won't be sorry!
