OK - this is at the Golf Village - you sit at tables and watch people practice their golf swings - including lots of kids running back and forth between their tee box and their parent's table, running with food, announcements to please give the staff 15 minutes to clear the range of golf balls, etc., etc., etc. But we've...

We pre-booked an outside spot at the restaurant. To our dismay our table was located next to a table were people were smoking non stop and unfortunately the wind constantly blew the smoke straight onto our table. The manager offered to move us to another table, but none of the outside seating is reserved for non smokers. That alone will... More

Visited this restaurant with my wife and was happy with the meal and service, nothing special but certainly worth the visit for a budget meal.

We used to frequent Primi quite regularly. So we decided to go for drinks today. Unfortunately we were not impressed. 1. The only seating outside was in the cold wind... when i suggested to the management that gas heaters would work he basically snubbed me by stating it would be useless??? 2. My frozen Marguerita was so salty and watery... More

This "used" to be one of my favourite restaurants in Somerset West. However, last night was bitterly disappointing. Our waitron was friendly, but too few staff for quality service... after waving and giving hand signals to the bar lady...we received top up drinks. Even more of a let down when the food arrived.... presentation was NON-exsistent, just a lump of... More

We arrived at around 11am this morning for brunch. We were welcomed by our extremely friendly and reliable waitress whom proceeded to take our orders. 45 mins later, our waitress arrived at our table and notified is that the kitchen had no kidney beans for one of the meals. By this time, we were already annoyed at how long our... More

Come here once in a while and they have some nice pasta dishes. But prices have increased and service declined. Needed to ask for the bread and glass for the beer. Rocket on pasta was replaced by soggy lettuce and apparently no one could see any problem with that being quite a major change to the dish. Otherwise quite nice... More

We are regular clients of the restaurant, since their opening. The food was always ”good”, but never special. Just another meal. My previous review’s reflect this in no uncertain terms. However, we went there again last night, after hearing some very good things about them. Now...the food was just excellent, ..and we can only compliment them on it. The service... More
