“Consistently Best Steak in South Africa”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

Even if the service was lousy (which it certainly isn't), and even if the chips were soggy (they're delightfully plump and crisp), and even if the non-meat dishes were moderate(which they sometimes are), the restaurant would always merit 5 stars. As any red-blooded carnivore knows -it's all about the steak !!!! And having visited regularly over the past 8 years or so, I can honestly say that I have never been disappointed. The rump is always succulent and juicy, the lamb chops sublime and the T-bone a delightful monster...But the onion, livers, salads and sirfried veggies are also outstanding. Only the linefish is sometimes ordinary (my wife is a non-meat eater). There is a comprehensive selection of wines which changes frequently, keeping the choices fresh and exciting, but even so you are always welcome to bring your own bottle. Wholeheartedly recommended !!!!!!!

“Great Steak Experience”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Have seen some comments that the ambience is not state-of-the-art. Can't understand this comments. It looks a bit rustic but not old and is a well-rounded, unique experience.
My wife had a sirloin steak which was recommended by the waiteress. This meat was just perfect! I gave the rump a try which was also great!

“Best Steaks Ever!”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

The Fillet Steaks and their own homemade Mushroom sauce is absolutely divine. Plus included as an extra is the baked Onion with a sweetish, sticky, crispy top. Most unusual and delicious.
Their Sirloin Steak was also excellent. My daughter ordered it together with a very well made salad. I had vegetables with my Fillet Steak.

“Meat is meat and man must eat!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

A local, this is my favourite steakhouse in SA. Bruce IS A LEGEND, and the meat he cooks just as memorable. If you want fancy décor, over attentive staff, great vistas and fine dining accoutrements, give this one a miss - BUT if you want real food cooked by real people, don't miss an opportunity to eat here. Famous for the Ultimate Onion, and rightly so, look no further for your first course. And take the time to read the comments in the menu.

The steaks!!!! My god they are good, perfectly cooked. The staff are wonderful, squeezing us in on a busy Friday evening. Excellent wine cellar. Do not miss this place, it's outstanding.
