We arrived at 5.50pm and we were greeted warmly and found a lovely table with a great view of the 12 Apostles. All the food was delicious but found it difficult to finish the 3 courses! I would definitely go there again before a show!

We had a pleasant pre-theatre dinner at this eatery. The service was friendly, though a bit slow. The food was tasty and enjoyable. No starches served with the main dish, but available for an extra charge. Main gripe? Very noisy, despite no distracting background music....More

Having read the different opinions of the bistro here, we decided to try it prior to the theater production. The menu is somewhat limited, but that does not worry me. We decided to try the venison burgers for a quick meal. The burgers were accompanied...More

Unfamiliar with restaurants in the area, we thought we could not go wrong by doing the obvious and having dinner at the theatre venue. Sidedish is a mere sideshow as a restaurant. The meal (a roast lamb knuckle with mixed braised vegetables on a cauliflower...More

What a disappointment that was! The place is beautiful and convenient and the service friendly, but that is where the good vibe stopped. The lamb shank was inedibly tough and could have benefitted from several more hours in the oven. We sent ours back after...More

We have visited this Bistro many times and have always enjoyed the food and the convenience. Last night (Friday), the bistro was very empty, even though the theatre was chock a block full. We were faced with a waitress who was obviously not trained, she...More

Please accept our apology for this. We are very disappointed to have fallen this far short of your expectations. The manager's service report for that evening did mention that there was a send-back because of food not being hot, but he clearly had a different...More

Side Dish is a good choice for dinner before watching a performance, as it allows one to relax and enjoy your meal without stressing about time. The ambiance is so-so, the menu is small but offers meat, fish and vegetarian options. We had a dim-sum...More

Visited the SideDish for a pre-dinner to Joseph's Technicolor Dreamcoat. We were one of 3 couples and were well received. Ordered a bottle of wine that was well priced and very pleasant. The starters are overpriced as are the desserts with pricing up to R90.00...More
