“Go for Reserve 21!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We used to go to Dale's Place when it was still situated in Table View and always had wonderful dining experiences there. We recently started visiting Dale's Black Angus Grill in The Paddock's centre and although the venue is not ideal with less ambience and the service a bit more inconsistent and unpredictable than it ought to be, Dale's Reserve 21 steaks are still a cut above the best!

“Dale is a champion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is one one of Dale's best restaurants. This guy - and his son - just appear to be getting better and better. The food is always better than expectation. They also cater really well for groups, and we have had several anniversaries and birthday parties here.

“The night of the strike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

On arrival we were told part of the staff is on strike and therefore only part of the menue available. Nevertheless our waitress was extremely friendly and promised us we would not feel a thing about the strike. Guess what? She was right: we got two tasty steaks, very good dessert and wonderful wine. Thanks for making an efford inspite of the strike

“A local hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

A hidden gem.

I visit Cape Town every year, three years ago I discovered Dales Black Angus and so far have never had a negative experience.

For those of you who do not know Cape Town well the restaurant is approximately a 15-20 minute drive from the city centre, is situated on the outskirts of a town called Milnerton and is within a shopping centre. The drive is very simple and it would be hard to get lost, no matter what time you visit you will find ample car park facilities.

The pricing of the food is comparable with a popular restaurant chain called Spur (if visiting SA for the first time ensure that you visit this chain at least once!).
I highlight this for a reason, Spur would be the rough local equivalent of say TGI Fridays within the UK, Dales Black Angus is more along the lines of a fine dining experience at an upmarket restaurant and so to have comparable pricing is quite frankly outstanding.

In total I have eaten at this restaurant 11 times, the menu should cover most tastes. Personally I’d highly recommend trying the Big 5 meal as well the Steak Extra special 21 Steak, it certainly tasted extra special as far as I was concerned.

The staff are friendly, the location is pleasant, the décor and seating is comfortable and the atmosphere is top notch.

For me, based on the price, service and quality and sheer value if I could only go to one restaurant in Cape Town this would be it. 5 Stars.

“Awesome steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Great restaurant. Bar staff great and the food was wonderful. I had the steak with mash and the portion was very generous. Would revisit when next in Cape Town
