“Passio What happened”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I am terribly disappointed. What I though was going to be the new Gem in Robertson seemed to last only a week or two.Suddenly they lack service and the evening menu consists of Starter:Seafood.Mains:Seafood. Drinks:Kid did not know prices and addressed us as Uncle and Aunty!! They stare you off the table, watching the whole time was very very uncomfortable. And really a plate of chips for R40. Mad price and sliced very thin potato chips.Very very small portion. Wimpy in Roberson serves a better thick sliced plate of french fries(chips) than Passio.
Think they need to pull up their socks to stay in the run for first place.

This is a gem! Food is absolutely first class and the hosts make you feel right at home. Had a meal on the way through to our holiday destination and made sure we stopped over on the way back!

“Exceptional dining in Robertson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Amazing service and meal at this relatively new restaurant in Robertson. Party of four. All three steaks cooked to perfection and as tender as can be. Chicken special for the evening absolutely delicious. Steak and chicken served with vegetables and potato wedges. Desert recommendation of upside down hot apple pie served with ice cream or cream was to die for:-) Best we have ever tasted!!!!
Beautiful decor with welcoming wood fire creating a warm and inviting ambience. Host, Annemarie is very friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Good value for money given quality of food and service. Take your own wine as the restaurant is not licensed at this stage.
