I went to the Armory with my colleague and her mum. I ordered grilled chicken salad and my colleague and mum ordered burgers. We were all very happy with our food. Thanks!

The overall service was bad. Drinks didnt'arrive at the same time. Pizzas arrived 30mins before the burgers. The waiter blamed our lost order on the kitchen. The manager did apologise, but too little too late

The Armory was a place to vissit and a gem for Stellenboch , or so i thought . Visited after a while and discoverd that something went wrong . The beer was warm and our waiter had no people skills . Missing the service that was provided by Kobus . Always friendly and on point.

It took 30 minutes to get our drinks and at least an hour or even more to get our food. They also ran out of burgers:/ I don't know how you can run out of burgers when really you only serve pizzas and burgers. The food was okay, but mine did look like it had been soaking in balsamic vinegar... More

Nice bar to find, good size with good seating outside on a 'not so busy street'. Friendly staff, good range of beers at ok (for South Africa) prices. Food looked good with plenty of people eating, well worth finding and the wifi is ok.

We visited The Armory on Tuesday night for their pizza special and we had made a booking. Most of our group arrived and we ordered drinks but about half an hour in, the waiter tried to take our order. We let him know that we were still waiting for two people and so we'd prefer to wait until they arrived.... More

Having dined in some of the best restaurants in town, we decided to go casual for the evening and went for a beer and a pizza. We were well looked after by the staff, however they were not hard pressed as the bar was very quiet. Great selection of beer, the Rooibos 'red' was particularly good. Pizzas were great, strange...

Ohmagosh, what a great burger. Disappointing milkshakes, I expected more of the rich, ice-creamy, thick kind. BUT, friendly and attentive service from our cute waitron, Lance. A great selection of burgers, hand-cut fries were a little oilrenched so I'll opt for the wedges next time but a really, really good taste sensation wow. Albeit I was worried that the ceiling...
