Quite a basic menu but they do know how to do a good steak and they deliver on that ! Location is out of the way but worth the find. Good value for money and good service. Would go again for sure.

The best part was the limited choice - type and size of steak, or chops - and with that type of focus, it is difficulty or any restaurant to not get it right. The garlic sauce on top can be missed, and they offer another option. The meat was well aged and grilled to perfection. For vegetarians, avoid this restaurant - the rest should not miss. Expect a pub-style setup - wooden benches - but you are not there for the decor.

I first visited Joplins from the UK in 2010 and have been back many times since. It was one of the factors which helped us decide to live in Wilderness. We arrived in late September this year and our 1st "dinner out" port of call was Joplins - We really like our wines so we brought along a couple of bottles of really good reds - corking charge only R30/bottle = less than £2!!!
The steaks are as good as one can get anywhere and the "chips/French fries" are usually done to perfection.
The service is not 5* but for a busy and friendly restaurant it is as good as it gets.
I am a now retired having owned one of the busiest French brasseries in the London area.
Highly recommended.

A very basic menu with various options of beef. Deliciously prepared. Juicy and cooked well. Service very informal and fun. Good value for money. Highly recommended in case you're a meat lover
