“Pretentious food ”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

Quick pop in turned into a slight annoyance. Cold coffee, unable to substitute seasoning, & a bad burger tasting like oil. When asked for the bill, seems if you a manager you let you customer wait because watching your staff if more important. Basically got shown the hand to wait,

“Value for money”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

I always find no matter which city you are in, if you can find a Primi restaurant you will always have good value for money and the primi at the waterfront did not disappoint us at all. the service was excellent and the food was top notch. well done guys.

“Never again”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

Went for dinner on a Sunday night. Looked like a nice place, had a great view. Very noisy. Not a place to enjoy dinner. Maybe better for a couple of cocktails. Waiters shout at each other, they shout orders from tables to the kitchen. The manager shouts things at the waiters. Why all this noise? A very irritating bell ring about every 60sec. Not a nice place to have a dinner. Food also not good.

“Worst chicken ever”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Primi Roastery (the art of chicken) in the Waterfront cape Town is a really bad experience - looks good, upmarket and not like your typical "fast food chicken places- I was terrible wrong - ordered a 1/4 chicken, chips combo and 1st round the chips was not even half cooked- send it back and a few minutes later the chips came back even worse The chicken was dried out and totally tasteless - called the manager and said this is one of the worst I ever ate - her excuse -The chips are suppose to look like this and the potatoes are just very "pale" interesting - "pale potatoes can't be cooked either ??? The excuse for the dry chicken was - "suppose to be like this because they are free range" - all I got was " I am sorry" - for WHAT ??? Will never try "the art of chicken again "
