Not sure what is happening but what a awful experience. Almost no patrons on a sunny Friday afternoon and I know why. Non of the usual cosy and relaxed feel and interior. Menu down to 2!!! pages only and limited wine menu. Staff tried hard enough so can't fault them. We had two descent enough pizza's but the 3rd was... More

I ordered a fillet steak with a monkey glad sauce - not a wise move. The steak was cold and overdone for medium rare ( was probably forgotten in the window ) Sauce was off I think. I'm not even going to mention the state of the salad. Staff are unfriendly and can't take criticism. Never seeing me again thank... More

We had an incredible evening at La Romantica. Awesome new menu, great service and wonderful live entertainment. The staff really went the extra mile in attending to all of our needs. We will be coming back very soon!

Fantastic everything! From the friendly manager and waitress to the live entertainment. BEST ribs I ever had! I have worked in 2 restaurants before and this restaurant is the topdog in the Helderberg in everything they do. Will DEFINITELY return :) 10/10

We waited for over an hour for our meal. There were only 2 other tables when we arrived. We ordered from the limited menu, only to be told that that dish was not available. When the food came (our bottle of wine was now empty) I must say I was surprised. The food was good, and everyone enjoyed theirs. The... More

What a surprise!!! Went to La Romantica for a meal before the movies and 3 of us were attracted by the same special- a T Bone with a glass of wine (I think for R89). When I took the first bite of that steak I had a taste sensation- that griller really knows what he is doing. I recommend this... More

Our family took my dad out for dinner and we chose La Romantica as we have had really good experiences at other branches. Thanks to Somerset Mall's La Romantica we will never be seen in a La Romantica again. The staff had no manners and was rude, food was passed over our food and laps to the person next to... More

We had to wait to be assisted. The food was not only cold and had to be warmed up, but there was hair in my wife's vegies. Service was really shocking and we had to help ourselves in more than one way

We went as a family expecting to have a relaxed Mother's Day only to get extremely frustrated due to the bad management. The kitchen was mixing up the orders The poor waiters had to try and calm all the unhappy clients. It was very sad to see disappointed customers leaving in search of another restaurant on this special day .... More
