“Lot's of entertainment”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

This was a fun venue. I thought the actors were quite convincing - the main actor, piano man and the 'granddaughter' - I'm not sure if they are only actors or if they really are a family. Great job....

The buffet of Cape Malay food was very tasty. Great selection and looked delish!

Dear mikni2wri,

Thank you for your wonderful review - we are so thrilled that you enjoyed it! As for the family, they are not really related - but we are glad that you thought they might be - it certainly shows you how convincing they were!

Kind Regards,

“Mothersday lunch 12 May 2013”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

What an experience, wow! Food was excellent, table settings with a rose, a poem, a chocolate, and perfume sample, made me feel so special. Live entertainment was very good. All the staff very professional, this includes the manager, the hostess and each and every waiter. Thanks for making my Mother's Day a day to remember. Will be back soon.

“We became regulars”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We know just about every restaurant in Sea Point and became regulars of Richard`s. The location is great, service is always warm and attentive. Food is very good: they run daily specials which are incredible value for money. We recommend this place to all our visitors from overseas and they never fail to be impressed
