Having written a positive review before I have had to change my opinion. My last few visits have shown a deterioration in many areas from the quality of the prawns which are now much smaller, the ridiculous Greek salad that cost R48 but was just filled with lettuce two slices of tomatoes cut into quarters a few olives and small...

We ordered a escargot starter, Prawn and Chicken main meal... 1. The staff doesn't wear uniform so you don't actually know who to speak to when you arrive, you cannot tell who is the waiter or manager. 2. WRT our order, we called at 7 they said it would be ready in 20 minutes, we arrived at 7:30 the food... More

During a busy festive season with multiple other staff party's on the same day the service and food was OUTSTANDING!! We enjoyed a 3-course menu all tastefully prepared and presented. Best value for money. I am still hearing my colleagues rave on about the... More

When we lived on the Berea Julio's Continental was one of our regular haunts because of the good quality, no frills, friendliness of it all. Going there last night was like coming home. Like just as good as ever!

I decided to surprise mom with a visit from Australia on her 60th Birthday. Julios being her favourite restaurant, I thought it was the perfect place to play the surprise out. And it truly was... the staff were amazing with the support I received during all moments of the organisational process. Fast forward to the day - 20 people; all... More

A large crowd of us went out for supper. I wish i could remember the waiters name, he was fantastic! We were kept well topped out throughout the night. We enjoyed our food and would recommend it for anyone to have a good relaxing night out.

This eatery has had very good reviews... and being a visitor, decided to have a special dinner there with my wife. On arrival I found it to be more of a "kitchen" atmosphere with bright lighting and very little vibe. The prawns were good but nothing out of the ordinary. The chicken livers were EXCELLENT however. Not much more once... More

Julio's in Davenport Road is nice option for an affordable meal and well priced bottle of wine. Since they have done the revamp which introduced toilets in the restaurant without having to go through the Stella Soccer area to the change rooms. What we have found is that the noise levels inside the are can be very high sand sometime... More
