After eating here several times before with clients we just had a bad experience. We walked in and were taken straight into the smoking section. We had to ask to be moved. We then had to wait 15 minutes to order drinks. After another 10min wait we finally ordered starters and our main course. 45 minutes later our main course... More

Even though it is located in a mall parking lot it is still nice to sit outside. Steaks are great and service is friendly.

This was my first visit to this outlet and I was not left feeling cheated. We turned up without a reservation to the Illovo outlet and was very surprised to see the large seating capacity and how busy it was. Nevertheless, we were seated, and from being ushered to our seats, the service and attention was just great. While my... More

Have been in this restaurant few times. No surprise, service is excellent, meat is delicious. We usually order, ostrich filet, T-Bone, Sirloin and deboned chicken all of them extremely good. Wine by glass is excellent , my favorite is Shiraz. Price is just right

I go to this restaurant quite ofter and every time I have a consistently high level of satisfaction and find an excellent value for money. Location is nice (I prefer the quieter veranda), meat (I always have fillet) is very good and properly cooked, wine list with some positive surprises. Above all the staff: fast, professional, proactive.

This is a proper steak house need to go back again soon for a good simple meal. They had special on that day so was a good deal. Steaks are normally quite expensive.

Venue great,service impeccable but food very average! I opted for the marrow bones--memories of this dish fresh in my mind and tastebuds from my recent visit to France.Well what a disappointment...these bones were done in a broth and the marrow was unappetizing watery grey sludge. This is a simple dish that should be presented in all its glory--succulent marrow with... More
