“Shocking service and food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

My bookclub went to Prosopa for our annual Christmas dinner. The service was non-existent, some of us waited for ages to eat. One client's salmon was half cooked - cold and raw inside. When the manager was called, he disappeared and got the chef to face the music, not that they bothered to offer anything to rectify, except to remake this person's food - can you believe it?? Once the rest of us had eaten!! Crazy - certainly not customer service. We will NEVER go back!!! Sent them a complaint and they never bothered to reply. Obviously they have too much business to worry about the 9 of us!

“Enjoyed but ...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Pleasant atmosphere, food good, wine choice good but both very pricey, good service. Signature dish: Kleftiko Deboned leg of lamb wrapped in vine leaves & tin foil stuffed with feta, fresh tomato, herbs and spices and slow roasted in the oven. Very tasty but very small portion. Crème brûlée not as good as Stephanie’s which is the best in Pretoria. Overall experience good but to pricey for what you get, better options available in Pretoria.

“So much potential”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Bought a group buying voucher for a tapas platter and invited some friends from Jhb to come and join us in Pta for dinner. What a disappointment! The only good thing was the interior - very pretty and tasteful although the very nice furniture were very uncomfortable. The tapas platter was okay (not great), out main courses were average to bad and the dessert was a total mess. Creme Brulee which did not set properly - absolutely terrible. The worst was the owner's lack of accountability.

Latest visit was for a wine producer's evening. Set menu: lovely mezze to start, interesting selection for mains and delicious desert. The wine was good too!! SatNav advisable to find in the dark!!

“Nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

Good food, with an intimate feel. Very good lighting. To me the wine list seemed a bit pricey?
