We had dinner and drinks here before a show and was not impressed. The white sauce of the pasta was burnt badly and inedible, when we sent it back and asked for a replacement the manager recommended another pasta which again had the burnt white sauce. What a disappointment. Steer clear!

We had dinner at this restaurant with family, We were quite a large group and the waiter handled it well. Service is very good and friendly with a wide variety of choices on the menu. You can eat almost anything here at very reasonable prices.

Carpaccio not really up to scratch, and not helped by the large helping of mushroom and celery. Snails were quite good but then the chicken wings and calamari again lacked flavour /substance.

Came here with friends from Joburg, as Brits we were pleasantly surprised to not have to make a reservation despite the busy time of evening. Well staffed and was nice to have same server all evening. Food was good but nothing out of the ordinary however a nice introduction to ZA. food came in good time.

We had dinner here on a fairly busy Saturday evening. Service was good and food too. We mostly had pizza at our table. Pizza Pollo was tasty, perhaps a bit heavy on the sweet chilli sauce.

We had a lovely family dinner at Primalfila Monte Casino. Food was delicious. Nine Inch Ale craft beer was yummy. The service was brilliant. Will definitely go back.

We went for a quick bite before a show. The service was prompt and friendly, the food was good, the portions were decent. The variety of cocktails is well priced. Excellent place for people watching.

Came to this restaurant about 15 years ago. Food is still as good as I remember. Calamari and pizza is to die for.
