Shop was clean and the waiters were very polite eager to serve. The food took some time to come. The food was average.

It is not easy to find eateries offering a varied menu and a restaurant with a pleasantly designed interior in the Roodepoort part of the world. Our landlady recommended this place and it did not disappoint. Internally it was large with several side rooms although the main lounge had raised parts.But it was clean and welcoming. The menu offered was... More

On the spur of the moment, me and my dearly beloved decided to treat ourselves, and to go to a restaurant. I saw the name "Porterhouse" in Ontdekkers road Roodepoort, and in memory of the famous Porterhouse restaurant in Hillbrow in the early 80's, where I spend many a happy night, we decided to give this one a try. BIG... More

Was in town for 12 days for business and had dinner here by myself twice. The food is great and it looks like a good place to go with family. There were couples, families with kids, families with grand parents and people were generally quiet and not rowdy. Several tables had reserved signs on them so it looks popular. If... More

This restaurant is now situated in Florida Junction. We had a family get-together here and the whole evening was very pleasant. The environment is average but the food and service are very good. The manager was always hovering around to ensure that everything was going well and he made us feel very welcome.

The service was slow and the food cool. I like my food piping hot. I thought the menu was rather limited and unimaginative.

Took my family out for supper. We were seated immediately, waiters knew what their job entailed and the food was fantastic. Well done to the owners and staff. As a recommendation feel free to try any of the various fillets on their menu. If you are visiting please take note that the Porterhouse has moved from Westgate to Florida Junction... More
