This is the best place to have a steak. We recently visited other steak houses previous to this in Cape Town and this beats them by FAR. Amazing service and amazing food!! You will not risk eating another steak after dining here!

Been here several times, the fillet is without any doubt the best I've had in the entire world. The venue itself is nothing to write home about, but the meat is incomparable.

Not sure how this restaurant has kept going for all these years in the midst of so many wonderful restaurants in the area. Old, dark premises with tiny windows that offer no views of the stunning seafront. Very ordinary steak meals. Needs a complete revamp of the premises and the menu

Pretty cosy restaurant. Speciality is meat. You can taste gnu meat or other game you did not expect. Service is very correct. Wine is local and as expected: fine! Price is OK.

We ate there one night in July. We had booked a table before hand. When we arrived the staff were still in training and we were seated at the bar. When we were eventually shown to our table it was in the middle of the restaurant. I asked the host if we could be moved to table with a sea... More

This so called "Steak House" in colloquial speak, is actually a fine dining place. We have eaten there on several occasions, but this most recent just reaffirms it, as some place special. Superb steaks, excellent grills and exceptional service. Fine dining indeed!

For the equivalent of £10, this was by far and away the best fillet steak I've had. The quality of the service, wine and especially the steak were amazing. To get a steak of this quality in the UK would cost 5-8 times the amount, if at all possible. We were slightly unsure of going to this place because it's... More

Having had many an excellent meal at the Rondebosch branch, I was looking forward to my favourite 'Hogs' ribs. 3 pork rashers arrived, which quite frankly looked as though they had been acquired from Pick 'n Pay. On enquiring what had happened to the normal sumptuous thick rib, I was informed that was how they came! On the positive side,... More
