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

A visit to Steam is an absolute must! Extremely popular, so Booking is advised! The Decor is "Steam Punk Decor" which is absolutely amazing and the Staff are all dressed-up and act the part exceptionally well! We sat in an "alcove" which was semi-private affording us to hear one-another over the noise of this busy restaurant. The food was absolutely... More

Lovely atmosphere in a cosy setting in Stellenbosch. This is a little off the beaten track but not so far as to beat you off track while travelling. Steam punk decor and waiters who really play along. GREAT.

This was a great lunch. The place is done out in a steam punk theme that is tasteful and visually exciting. The staff are friendly and very efficient making you feel at home. The food was excellent!! Generous portions well presented and absolutely delicious. Well done guys

Good service and food, cool decor, and great Truth coffee. Nice vibe. Seating inside and outside. We had the bobotie, chicken curry and my sister had the sirloin steak which was a bit tough.

I've been here a few times since they've opened. The service is really good and I'm hooked on their flagship burger. Not sure what the name is called now because lots of items on the menu have funny names. When you enter and see the very unusual decor and waiters dressed in leather and weird headgear then you understand why... More

We ordered the cheese/ charcuterie platter which was good for sharing. Service was friendly but a little slow, but Steam was extremely popular and had live music at the upstairs bar

We had a table out on the street, enjoyed the craft beer and watched the world go by. Starters ribs and the crumbed cheese spicy and good. I had the house burger glad the sauce was on the side. If you like it with a bite, it meets the criteria. The Oma's bobotie was far from the advertised real thing.... More
