“Great Steaks!”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

Steaks are always perfectly done and so flavorful! Lamb is excellent too. The bordelaise is divine!
Excellent service even when busy which they always are.

“Great Steaks, Well-Priced”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Had lunch here again and the steaks were very good. We had the T-bone and Rump steak, which at R130 are well-priced for the quality of steak you get. The sauces are improved as well and the fries are nice and crispy. The service is generally good, but not amazing and the venue is attractive - open and sunny. Probably not as good as the Grillhouse or Squires Loft in Parkhurst but competetive. Parking in the complex remains a problem, especially if you don't know the centre.

“Food quality mixed”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

I recently had lunch at the T'nT Illovo and our meal quality was very mixed. My point rump was excellent and the vegetable accompaniment was good however my son's side of fries was extremely oily and the oil not that fresh either! Likewise the chicken in my daughter's salad was rather oily. So overall the food was a little disappointing around the very good steaks. Service was however attentive and fast despite being a Sunday and the restaurant being pretty busy.

“Great steaks”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

This must be the fourth time we visited this very well known establishment.
Service was average for a quiet Monday lunch.

The steaks are not cheap but well worth the price. Do not expect great chips as they were old and oily!

I think its best to go during bust evening trade as the service, atmosphere and chips are much better then!

This steak house is worth a visit!
