Visited this restaurant with my wife and was happy with the meal and service, nothing special but certainly worth the visit for a budget meal.

We used to frequent Primi quite regularly. So we decided to go for drinks today. Unfortunately we were not impressed. 1. The only seating outside was in the cold wind... when i suggested to the management that gas heaters would work he basically snubbed me by stating it would be useless??? 2. My frozen Marguerita was so salty and watery... More

This "used" to be one of my favourite restaurants in Somerset West. However, last night was bitterly disappointing. Our waitron was friendly, but too few staff for quality service... after waving and giving hand signals to the bar lady...we received top up drinks. Even more of a let down when the food arrived.... presentation was NON-exsistent, just a lump of... More

We arrived at around 11am this morning for brunch. We were welcomed by our extremely friendly and reliable waitress whom proceeded to take our orders. 45 mins later, our waitress arrived at our table and notified is that the kitchen had no kidney beans for one of the meals. By this time, we were already annoyed at how long our... More

Come here once in a while and they have some nice pasta dishes. But prices have increased and service declined. Needed to ask for the bread and glass for the beer. Rocket on pasta was replaced by soggy lettuce and apparently no one could see any problem with that being quite a major change to the dish. Otherwise quite nice... More

We are regular clients of the restaurant, since their opening. The food was always ”good”, but never special. Just another meal. My previous review’s reflect this in no uncertain terms. However, we went there again last night, after hearing some very good things about them. Now...the food was just excellent, ..and we can only compliment them on it. The service... More

A chilled setting where you can sit outside and watch the golfers practicing their drives and swings or sit inside and relax. Service is efficient and they don't mind if you linger and do some work, have a meeting or just chat. During the week, they are not hectically busy but weekends it can pump. The food is true Primi...
