“Good mains, not great starters”
Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

We were not impressed with any of our starters and the food was not very hot. The mains was good, we had fillet steak and rump steak, their sauces also very good, would go back and insist on hot food and would skip the starters. We felt a bit cramped too, they got too many tables too close together, overall still good though.

“Average”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

Went to The Godfather with great expectatios, as this restaurant has a good reputation. They have a open air bar/veranda outside where you can purchase drinks while waiting to be seated. Very, very expensive!
Once seated, you realise the seating is a bit cramped, but OK. The decor is almost non existent, the music acceptable, the waiter/service good. Even tried to speak Afrikaans!
The rump steak and the spinach were very good, but the side dish portions were very small. The calamari was below standard, the desert good.
Very, very expensive compared to similar restaurants in the city and you leave feeling not impressed. Will not see us again.

“Pleasantly surprised!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Okay so this place probably didn't license anything from the movies, so I was a bit skeptical at first.

Anyway,

YES, you will over eat
YES, you will drink too much wine
YES, you will brag to your friends in North America or the quality and quantity of food you'll get for around 200 rand

Service was great too.

Rib trio, filet, T-Bone, all good!

Oh yeah, they make a pretty decent long island iced tea.
