“Brunch at the beach”

Cielo Resto-Lounge-Bar
Ranked #44 of 88 Restaurants in Benoni
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 February 2018

It was our first visit and well worth it. The view is very nice with people waterskiing in the back and the beach setup in front of you. You can decide to sit outside overlooking or relax on the beach. Great ambience. The menu was different from the usual. Food was very good.

It is not often that I am forced to write a negative review. Usually, I can find a few things that are positive about a restaurant. Well, this restaurant has created a first for me.

On 02 January;
We waited over 30 to 40 minutes for each drinks order. Our food order took 1.5 hrs to come and when it did, was sub standard and ice cold. The simple cheeseburger we ordered without garnish arrived with cheese on a bun! No burger patty. When I queried this, I had to personally walk to the grill and speak to the chef. NO management in sight. The R150 rib eye steak looked like thin tenderized steak, and tasted even worse.

Then the manager tried to blame their inadequacy on the poor waitress. Heads up Ciello owners and managers - your attitude toward paying customers stinks. My bill was over R2000, and you expect me to be happy with what I got. When you are understaffed, management should become more involved. The lazy management at Ciello’s believe they are too good for this.

Thanks for ruining our special afternoon!

If you are planning to spend your hard earned money on a restaurant, then chose another venue. I cannot recommend Ciello, even if they have a great venue.

It was my second visit,
and because i really enjoyed my first visit I invited quite a few guests to join me
as I expected an above average experience!
The restaurant offers a great setup, beautiful view, awesome décor,
and I love the atmosphere!
Great service, friendly and accommodating staff!
BUT THE FOOD WAS BAD!
What a shame!
The owners need to re train their kitchen staff,
our simplest order, a hamburger was a mess with dry bread and a patty from hell
and so was all the other dishes we ordered!
Wont see me again!
