“Almost good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

Gisters is one of those restaurants that promises so much but sadly does not live up to that promise. The ambience is good the service is good but the food is very average. The best is the freshly baked breads, but get it when it is fresh. Sadly if you order it in the restaurant they microwave it and it goes a bit chewy and unpleasant.

It is still one of the better restaurants in JB but sadly could do so much better.

“A traditional South African food must”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

Oxtail, tripe, and curries add to a menu which provides a good variety of South African food. The oxtail was particularly tasty and well presented. Our party of seven all enjoyed the dishes. The wine list is broad and should suit all requirements. Well worth a visit.

“Very slow service! ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

The food is great, but in peak season you end up waiting 20 minutes for a cup of coffee, and 90 minutes for a meal to arrive. Avoid during peak season.

“Great Breakfasts and traditional food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

Always visit this restaurant when Iwe are in Jeffreys Bay to visit the family - great oudoor space, lovely decorations of the past and delicious food and good service - there is also a selection of gifts and homebaked goods to buy. Parking no problem. Outdoor space to watch the passersby as well.
