“A must for wonderful atmosphere, great staff & phenomenal food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Buena Vista has an amazing atmosphere and staff, along with phenomenal food. While my personal favourite would have to be their nacho's, after years of frequenting this restaurant, I have yet to discover a dish I dislike. Plus cocktails are a must!

I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Awesome, relaxing well maintained restaurant. Service was excellent, if you can ask for Ryno as waiter, please do. All staff friendly, food exceptional. True gem of the Helderberg.

“Buena Vista S/West You Rock !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Hey Tyrone,

Thank you ! We once again paid a visit to your establishment and let me tell you - a Wonderful time was had by all. The people thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and as usual, the food was out of this world, no shortage of drinks and I must commend your staff and all who were involved for their fantastic service they rendered. I am sure some of the "out of towners" (CT CBD & Durbanite guys) will be back or frequent your other venues in their areas.

You can be assured - we'll be back !

Thank you once again and keep up the excellent service !

“Good friends, great food, awesome vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

I visit Buena Vista in Somerset West regularly - and I live in Parklands!

I love the friendly atmosphere and I am never disappointed by the food - try the chilli poppers!

The range of drinks caters for any function and there is nothing better than my favourite Grolsch draught.

Make sure you visit soon...
