We had a party of 6 for dinner, and enjoyed a good variety of menu options, for differing tastes. The hamburger was good, steak disappointing (tough, overcooked), fish and salads were good. The server was good humored, friendly, but slow to respond.

What can I say? We were shown to our table then were totally ignored. So we got up and left after about 15 minutes, went next door to Basilicos where we had orders taken and drinks delivered within 5 minutes. Sorry I can't make a positive comment about Jakes Steenberg so make up your own minds.

I have seen Jakes on many visits to the shopping centre where it is located and have thought it looked a bit mediocre sort of tucked away in a corner. However we actually went there last night and what a pleasant surprise. It is quite enormous inside but in a very welcoming and cozy way. All seven of us were... More

We often visit Jakes in Kenilworth where we get value for money. Last night we joined a friend for her birthday along with five others at Jake's in the Village. The waiter Tom's best efforts came to naught as he was thwarted by the kitchen and management's inefficiency in preparing the meals in time, and in showing no understanding about... More

This restaurant was chosen because it was convinient for everyone to meet here. Service was good, but food average. We shared 2 starters while waiting for the last participant to arrive. Table was quite large, which made it difficult to communicated with everybody.

My friend and I went on their burger night which is a special whereby you purchase 1 beef burger and you receive one free. I ordered my burger well done and had to send it back twice. The second time it came back red in the middle I changed my order to a chicken burger as why risk starving while... More
