So refreshing to go to a restaurant where you can actually have a civilized conversation with your fellow diners. Chaplins has a respectable distance between tables, plays "background " music and has super tasty food to boot. Staff are very friendly. A super little place to dine at.

The food was superb. The trio of carpaccio was melt in your mouth perfect and this was followed by the lamb shank (the 400gm offering) and that was beautiful. The knife cut through it like a knife through butter. The taste was superb. Unfortunately there was no room for desert. We sat in inside and found the tables well spaced... More

I go to Chaplin's regularly for work-related lunches, both for small, as well as larger groups. Their steaks are consistently excellent, and they have a great wine selection, Their barista could benefit from some extra training, but otherwise I love this place.

Since we've discovered Chaplins, we've been back time and time again for amazing food and great service delivered consistently and with a smile. You won't regret dining here.

I wouldn't dare open a steakhouse in a 500km radius of Chaplin. Service, Location and Food is absolutely amazing. A little pricey, but what great restaurants aren't today ?

Only a short distance from where we live, but inexplicably a place that has evaded our radar for years. When fiends suggested we go there for a casual Friday evening dinner, we readily agreed since other friends had spoken highly of the venue. We weren't disappointed. Despite a very reasonably priced wine list, we are collectors and so took our... More

Service is extreme slow and the service Staff hardly check on you, we had to try and catch their attention when we wanted something. Food was delicious but definitely not the same standard of other top steak restaurants in Jo'burg

The staff were very friendly without "joining" our table. Attentive but discreet. The food was well cooked and pleasantly plated.
