Based on the many good reviews, we chose Al's Place for a large family dinner. We were warmly welcomed by Al & Olga. We had a wonderful and relaxed evening. Each dish was delicious. Our waittress, Lee Anne, was most efficient. She and Al often stopped by to check that all was in order. Altogether a marvellous choice, and we certainly intend going back frequently.

On our way to a Baxter show, we quickly Googled for a restaurant on TripAdvisor and found Al's Place and decided to give it a go as the reviews very pretty good.

All expectations were exceeded. The food were great, juicy steaks and tender calamari but what was really great was to meet Al in person and the special attention received from Al and Lee-Ann throughout the meal. Love the "Al" posters in the restaurant and general homely feel.

Would definitely recommend and will be back! So glad we found this gem.

We had a fantastic supper here. I had Dick and my partner had fish (kabeljou or cob). Both items cooked to perfection. The restaurant is a homely, welcoming place and is a perfect getaway from the horrible franchised restaurants that dot the city. highly recommended.

This is a fantastic local spot! Al is hands on and a great guy. The food is really well priced especially for the portion size and if you get there early for the special I don't think you can get a better steak in Cape Town for the price. Another bonus is that it is right across from Rondebosch station so it is a great if you don't have a car or you don't want to drink and drive.

Everything about Al's is authentic and unpretentious - down to earth and friendly staff, delicious food served without fuss and decoration and all great value for your money. I had the ribs which were fantastic - no fat, yet not dry, great flavour - they were super. My husband loved his rump steak which was cooked to perfection - he wanted it rare and it was pink and warm all the way through which is often not the case. The classic steak house veggies were lovely too. A great spot and one we'll go back to.
