Dining options: Late Night, Reservations
Description: This is casual food cranked up a level. Try the perfectly textured home-made hamburgers, beer battered hake with fries, and wild mushroom risotto. Traditional curries and mouth-watering steaks with classic bearnaise are a must for the carnivores. There is also a fantastic selection of tapas either as a starter or combine a few for your main course. The menu is small but changes every day to ensure the freshest ingredients. Fresh bread is prepared daily.Delvin Reck, the Head Chef, was the winner of the Stalwart of the Kitchen Award for the Sunday Times Food Awards in 2011.

Tried this restaurant this year as we were were unable to get in last year but we were not very impressed. We booked a table well in advance and when we arrived our table was on an outside patio, stuck away in the corner. We were a bit disappointed at this and then bigger parties were arriving by the time we placed our order. We just got the feeling that they were only interested in giving all the attention to the the bigger parties. Our meal wasnt that brilliant either and expensive in comparison to some of the other superb restaurants in the area. .

Decided to stop at Scotty's for lunch around noon with a friend on Saturday. As my friend was on crutches, we chose to sit outside at one of the garden tables. No sign of anyone, so after a wait of five minutes or so I went searching, no-one inside either. Finally a waiter made an appearance.
I explained that my friend was on crutches and we chose to sit outside to avoid him having to negotiate the steps. I was told that there is no menu's but rather the dishes are written on a black board. I was asked to repeat the items to my companion rather than have the waiter explain the menu items to both of us.
The waiter took our order and followed with our coffees soon afterwards. The items ordered were well presented; Fish & Chips which was freshly prepared and tasty, with thin chips & a side salad, reasonable @ R70. Sirloin Steak with thick cut chips & a side salad. The steak, ordered MR, was very small (about 160g), little seasoning, no sauce offered, chips were freshly prepared & crispy and the salad was good, however @ R129, it was very expensive for such a small potion and simply prepared dish.
At no stage did anyone ask after our satisfaction despite the fact that we were the only table there.
I am very disappointed that this establishment does not serve value for money, or near it.
