We booked Private Room 1 with the balcony for my dad's 80th. The room and view were fantastic. The start of the night wasn't great. We had the second booking 8.45pm. The room wasn't ready so we were told to go upstairs and have a drink. It was packed upstairs and were told by the guy behind the bar (ponytail)... More

I took the family and partners for a birthday dinner. We were met with smiles and taken to a nice table. That sets the tone, the staff were lovely. I had well done rump with sides of chips and onion rings and the Moroccan green peppercorn sauce. It was lovely - getting a good well-done steak is not easy. They... More

Maybe I'm a spoilt traveller but hubby and I love ribs after numerous trips to USA over the last 7 years. So when child free and after hearing the hype decided to head to Southbanks Meat & Wine Co and indulge in some ribs! Waitress suggested the pork as more meat and value for money. I ordered the beef and... More

Great restaurant to visit if you're craving a huge plate of meat! Some of the best ribs I've ever had. Good portion size and reasonably priced.

Pricing was reasonable. Service was great. Steaks were nice but for some reason this place did not click with me. Nothing I can complain about but just not me. Well worth a visit if you like steak but I will not be in a rush to return

I cannot fault the meals at this restaurant. Steaks are obviously a specialty and mine was perfectly cooked though it would want to be for the price. My companion's spiced chicken was also faultless. Salad a bit tired perhaps. What is less satisfactory is the ambience. The business model is clearly based on having multiple sittings and so there is... More

Love this place I've been about 5 times and it's always great food and service Bests steak I've ever had cooked to perfection and so tender you can cut with a butter knife

We had cocktails and drinks in the bar, the bartender was Chad. Possibly the best costumer service ever.

Booked online with no personal feedback. Was running late and they were very accomodating. Service was exceptional and very caring with a sick family member. Lamb and kangaroo skewers were stunning and the 300gm wagyu steak were out of this world. The 21 stables South African pinotage is one of the finest wines I have had in years. Overall one... More
