Parktown is filled with plenty great places to go and this has to be one of them. Another one of those old Victorian houses converted into a restaurant, serving great food. We had cranberry and brie pizza on the table and must admit that this was the winner of the meals ordered. Sitting outside is pleasant, inside I think would... More

We were a table of eight, normally quite a mission. We were greeted warmly and the drinks arrived quite promptly. Great food

A wonderful spot for a lazy Sunday lunch. It was lovely sitting outside in the courtyard under the trees. The fountain in the middle kept the small children occupied. And the food was good too. Prego roll, chicken breasts and the pizza were all delicious. I had a spinach and chicken salad - the chicken was especially yum! The waitress... More

The service at Full Stop is awful. I had to go inside twice to find our waiter- both times she was found chatting inside with other waiters and watching TV. We gave up waiting for her to bring us any condiments and went and fetched them ourselves. The salmon that I order was not fresh at all! I will not... More

First time at this venue for a wedding. The street view is unassuming and first impression is exactly that of a cafe. But the level of service and quality of food is everything but that of a cafe. We attended a wedding and everything just went according to plan. The lamb spitbraai was really nice and the sweets amazing. Thanks... More

Love the full stop cafe, food is always good! We went yesterday with family to have some lunch, obviously weren't disappointed with our food but our waitress wasn't attentive at all! Waited a while for our drinks which were warm. She came to take our food order and wasn't seen until our food showed up which was almost an hour... More

Such a lovely place in Parktown. I had the Caprese soup for dinner - something new and very tasty. This restaurant offers a smoking, non-smoking and outdoor tables for meals; waiters are efficient and friendly; food is tasty. Keep an eye on the specials board; lots of yummy options here!

Full Stop was recommended because of the lovely garden and the fact that it is in walking distance of home. The brilliant winter sunshine in the pretty garden did not motivate any of the 7 waitrons standing under an umbrella to give me any attention. I asked for the WiFi password and they mimed/shouted it to me without moving from... More

Dog friendly, spacious restaurant with lovely inside and outdoors seating. Pleasant, relaxed atmosphere with great food. The service is a little slow, but worth the wait.
