Four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal, despite a large table of work colleagues next to us. Very buzzy atmosphere, and staff very friendly.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner here, including the chicken curry and a steak. We were very impressed with the quality of the meal. Service was excellent, and it's a nice small intimate restaurant. They have a great wine list and made lots of good suggestions...More

We heard so much good about the restaurant that we decided to go there for dinner. Location and music verry nice. It was quickly busy and then quite noisy. Food was good, but not so outstanding as I expected.

Enjoyed an excellent dinner here. The restaurant was busy but you could still talk comfortably without being bothered by adjacent conversations. The menu was interesting and different. The springbok steaks in particular were fantastic. Good wines too.

Amazing food, wine and service. We booked our table a month in advance as we were told that it’s very popular and at 7 it was nearly full. We didn’t count the cost and had a (relatively) expensive bottle of wine. However the total bill...More

Save yourself! Don't do the winetram. Pick a nice vineyard ( leopards leap or Le ludes ) and have some lunch there and do a proper tasting. Then have an afternoon doze and enjoy your meal at Ruebens. It's excellent. The... More
