We came for my birthday dinner, and from start to finish the night was perfect. Our meals were of top quality and all the staff made us feel safe and welcome. Our waiter Nigel was attentive and caring and helped make sure we had the...best experience and never with an empty glass. I will highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a delicious stake and wine to go with.More

My experience here was average. The best part of it was the amazing service from the waiter. Unfortunately the venue itself could do with some cleaning, updating and repairs. The food was okay but with duck being a firm favourite of mine, it was not...entirely enjoyable as it did not taste fresh and there wasn't much actual duck meat to eat (more bone than meat). The mash was a bit lumpy too. My partner had the beef trinchado which was okay except for the sauce that tasted like it had some familiar soup powder in it. I'm sure that it would have been a fantastic restaurant in it's day because it is easy to see that potential and with some TLC, I have no doubt it could be again.More

First trip to Gauteng since the hard lockdown and went on to the Entertainer to look at possible places to eat out. Positive reviews about Chaplains Grill in Sandton was what convinced me to give it a try and it was well worth the visit....Excellent service from our waiter Kenneth coupled juicy, tender and tasty steak got me thinking that this was well worth the visitMore

My partner and I were in Sandton in Jo'burg for just one night and looked for a restaurant that does game: Chaplin's featured highly so we made our way there. The waiter was very eager to help us select the perfect meal, and the wine...selection was fabulous. The ostrich and the kudu were both delicious and tender, perfect! Altogether the evening was wonderful, a resounding success of a find.More
