Steak is not my first choice on a menu but my friends insisted that I try "the best steaks in town". So, I did. They really are the best in town. They sell more than just steak but the rib-eye on the bone is a must, with sweet potato chips. The place gets filled quickly, so make a reservation to... More

If you looking for the best stake in Cape Town. You have to go to the Avenue. I have been the often and never ever had a bad stake. They make the best beef ribs. Every one should go there for stake and ribs.

Have eaten at the Avenue a few times and always had a really good steak. We took our family there recently for dinner. The steaks just melted in your mouth. The quality of the steak has remained consistant and a treat everytime! Service was slow and we had to wait a long time. The owner was aware of this as... More

What a great local spot! Have visited twice in the last month and both times were pleasantly surprised! Delicious cajun calamari starter, the fillet steak was fantastic quality and perfectly prepared! The mushroom sauce was rich and delicious. Even the chips and roasted veg sides exceeded expectations. We will definitely be back soon!

We had an acceptable but unmemorable meal here, which is probably why there were tables on a Friday night when Brad's a few doors down was packed!

Cosy restaurant which serves of the best steaks you can get in town. They were able to accommodate us at short notice, table was ready when we arrived. Starters came out very fast and the steaks did not take that long even though they were pretty full. The waiter knows his cuts and when the food arrived I was not... More

In Cape Town for the first time, I'm lucky to be staying in Claremont close to The Avenue - I've eaten there twice in four days and will be back! The food is really good, the best steak I've had for quite a while. The staff are efficient, friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere is buzzy but not noisy. And... More
