Good steaks every time with a large choice of sauces, prices are decent and the potions large. What more could you want? Maybe the whole rack of ribs.

Our hotel recommend we visit Nelson's Eye (within walking distance). The restaurant itself is no frills, but provides delicious food at a crazy value. We took advantage of the winter specials menu -- my husband actually ordered two fillets because he could (each at 90 Rand, or approx $9.50) and proclaimed them both to be the best he had eaten. Service was friendly and amiable. We had been visiting Stellenbosch wineries earlier in the day and enjoyed bringing our own bottles (for a small corkage fee). From our table, we could look onto the grill and watch our food being cooked. We enjoyed some banter with the staff and left STUFFED and happy.

We were recommend by friends to visit here and it did not disappoint.

The portions are large and steaks just fantastic. The wine list is very good and well-priced. It may not be the fanciest restaurant or in the greatest location but don’t let that put you off as the steaks are the best I’ve had.

Well worth the visit

Nice restaurant; quiet; looked as if it need a bit of renovation. But the food was pretty good and very substantial, (Don't bother with a starter!) Most of us had game dishes (springbok, etc), which all said were tasty. The service was friendly and the wine list was adequate if a little on the expensive side. Toilets are upstairs (which a bit on the creaky side)
