I was disappointed with my last meal and was reluctant to go back on New Year’s Day. This is a nice place for a family visit with a great play area for kids. There food prices are very high for the quality of food served!...More

Great place for fish and chips...if you like freezer/box fish. Chicken livers were great....it'd you like them badly undercooked. Lunch took excessively long to come, for simple dishes.....despite the restaurant being mostly empty. The menu selection has decreased, and the prices have gone in the...More

This used to be a nice restaurant, so I was shocked to see how the standards have dropped. I ordered a croissant and got a bright yellow, overheated mess that tasted slightly rancid. After asking and then waiting for the manager to do his rounds...More

We were at the restaurant... now called "Southey Bistro", for a birthday party. A long story short.. something went terribly wrong at this place. It used to be a very nice restaurant/coffee shop. With a short but very good menu. Well today, was a disaster.....More

This restaurant's name has changed recently, I think now called Southy's Bistro. For the past 10 years the nearest restaurant to our house with so much potential and such a lovely setting but in urgent need of an extreme make over.

Smoking near children. No real boundary separating smoking section from rest of tables. So kids and non-smokers get smoke in their eyes...

Economical family outing in Somerset West - affordable food complimented by an excellent wine shop in the restaurant. Good for breakfast or light lunch.

The menu and food are fine. Service is bad. May be it was as the manager was on leave that day. I suggest it should be fine for parents with kids. Nice play area for kids, however lots of dust as lawn does not exist...More
