“Several visits, always enjoyed it”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

A great choice for steak eaters although their fish is excellent too. Have eaten here several times, always found the service good and the quality of the food excellent. On one visit they had no bread rolls as these had not been delivered which was a bit of a disappointment.

“Authentic and delicious! Warm and friendly!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We walked in at 9.15 pm on a Sunday night, no problem, even though their kitchen was due to close at 9.30. Nothing was too much trouble for these friendly people, who really know their game. We asked them which two starters we should choose as they all sounded equally delicious, and the croquetas of chorizo, corn and mash with their salsa were simply outstanding in terms of texture and flavour: better than the ones we ate in Buenos Aires by far. We alSo had four huge crispy prawns with spicy mayo, lovely firm fleshed and well worth the R70. Mains were a medium rare burger wih Brie, bacon and avo, with chimichurri, and a sirloin with chimichurri, and both were perfectly cooked to medium rare, full of flavour. Like Little Havana, these people know their meat, and in both places, the meat was rested before it came to the table.
Now that's what I like! Respect for the ingredients, and the desire to serve them at their best. Authentic flavours, and no quality compromises, and fair prices, for both the wine and the meal. This was our last night in Umhlanga, and I realized that Durban is back on the food map in my book!

“Disappointment this time round!”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

This was the third time we returned to eat dinner at this restaurant because of our previous great experiences. They are known for their tasty and tender steaks but this time they were not cooked to perfection. We sent my steak back 3 times to be cooked some more because it was rare and I wanted it medium well! I ordered a 200g steak which was more like a 100g steak. The waitress was not very helpful at all. The coffee saucer was not properly washed! Third time back - very disappointed.

“Food was ok, lacking in ambience.”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

It may be that the lack of atmosphere was because we ate fairly early in the evening and the place was not full. Food was fine, not quite the quality we had been expecting from the various reviews and recommendation from our B&B hosts, but fine.
