  • Fantastic steaks. My favourite steak in Cape Town and has never let me down in over a decade of patronage. Will recommend to anyone with utmost confidence.

  • The perfect steakhouse. I heard a lot of hype about this place serving the best steak in Cape Town, and it measured up. Generous with the alcohol, perfectly sized sides, and a great dessert to top it all off! I enjoyed the music selection, too,and it wasn't so loud as to drown out conversation. Definitely order the steak, and definitely don't order it well done unless you want to make the experts sad.

  • Nelson's Eye is what I think of as a traditional South African steakhouse, dark panelled walls, framed pictures of Lord Nelson. Outstanding quality beef cuts (mine is a full-size fillet, no basting or sauce). For people who like sauces, they offer several made to order and scratch sauces (fo me, I just like the flavour of unaltered great beef !)All grilles come with the usual family style sides of root vegetable and creamed spinach, and a choice of starch (I usually go for the baked potato with all the fixings). An order of onion rings as a side is a must. Having explored steaks all over Cape Town, none beats and few equal the consistent high quality that we always enjoy at Nelson's Eye. Floor Manager can be a bit grumpy, but he always remembers us and welcomes us back. Wait staff is friendly and efficient. We never have room for desserts. I always appreciate the refrigerator chilled bottles of table water, just another small detail that keeps us coming back.

  • This was a lovely restaurant for a big group - our party of 10 were placed upstairs in this surprisingly big restaurant (every room we went through, I expected that to be the end, but there was always another one on the way!). The service was good, though obviously it being very busy our waitress seemed a bit harried. I like that each person is assigned a number, so orders don't get mixed up - clever, and simple, system. The food is what we came for, though, and it didn't disappoint. Those steaks were brilliant. It's quite unusual to get the steak cooked exactly as you ordered it, but that was exactly what we got. The Spring Special menu was definitely worth it (something like R30 off starters, and R70 off main meals!). From the main menu, I particularly liked the combo garlic sauce, with onion rings on top for a mere R20 extra. Will absolutely be back!
