If you are looking for a relaxed dinner at a nice slow pace with great food this is the place for you. The serve was great,attentive when needed but not overly so and the food was particularly good, especially the biltong carpaccio which was sublime. The wine selection is also very good but we very much enjoyed the house Merlot.

Had a super meal here at the Two Dogs Bistro - most favourite part of the dish was the signature 'wasabi infused mashed potato' - WOW! it was amazing! Really enjoyable evening, tasty, unique and a very romantic little spot too! Hope to return soon.

I love food, particularly when its prepared by someone who knows what he is doing. There is no doubt in my mind that Oliver can cook fish! I love fresh fish, but no one seems to be able to cook it the right way in EL. It's usually over done and tasteless. I'm always happy when I order fish at Two Dogs, the portions are generous and the flavors are delicious. Oliver knows his story when it comes to fish.
PS he also does a mean fillet according to my husband!

Went back to two dogs on our lates trip to East London, a simple restaurant with great food. Service sometimes a bit slow and this time in their new location, the place was a bit small and we left smelling like a restaurant kitchen - it was winter so maybe the ventilation was not great.
