Food was great and well priced. Ordered a 350g fillet steak which arrived un-butterflied, how it should be. Service and waiter were also good! Thanks.

I have visited this restaurant four times and yesterday will most certainly be my last. The first was not long after they opened and meat dish was hard and dry, I forgave it as a teething issue. The next time I had a guest and who wanted cigarettes, they charged her R65 for a pack of cigarettes.!! This is a... More

Great concept for a restaurant, we started upstairs in the gin bar, nice gins. John the bank ordered the Contraptor burger-wish I had too, as not so keen on my choice of babootee Had fun wearing the googles we found on the wall, and we went back a day later for just drinks as we liked the atmosphere so much.

never been before, we strolled to Steam, without a booking, we were accommodated and proceeded to have a lovely evening. Dinner was first class, different, pleasing to the eye, and on top of it - very tasty. Fillet, melted in your mouth. After a lovely meal, we went upstairs to the Gin Bar, met some friends, and had an ABF... More

This burger has got me coming back for more. You get plenty, great tasting and well worth the price. Service was good and atmosphere downstairs was quiet and relaxing. There's also an upstairs cigar lounge where we went for a drink before going down for our meal. Don't waste your time looking elsewhere for a better burger cos that ain't... More

My wife and I went here for our first meal in the town. We were knackered after a long over night flight. And just wanted somewhere quick and easy - found the perfect place. Both had salads chicken and the Avocado. Decent portions also ordered the Japanese spring roll which actually came same time rather then before. Staff friendly and... More
