User reviews

  • My mom and I had the most amazing meal at Skotnes. Firstly the breadsticks with homemade hummus and butter was delcious, we then shared the duck liver parfait- out of this world, for mains we both had the rib eye. It was grilled to perfection and was super tender and tasty. For dessert we shared the banana bread, once again outstanding! The service was also impeccable and our waitress was very attentive and helpful in the decision making process. Cant fault anything with this amazing restaurant!

  • Skotnes restaurant gets full marks for achieving its aim of showcasing South African food and flavours. The menu is varied and refreshingly different, and thankfully doesn't follow the trend of merely listing ingredients, so that options can be weighed up without the need for detailed explanations from the staff. Deciding what to order can be difficult, but our waitress Nana was knowledgeable and helpful. Three of us chose completely different dishes, and everything was superb – presentation, flavours and quality of ingredients were all faultless, and portion sizes ample. Don't be disappointed if the soup of the day is pumpkin and butternut: it is worth going back for! The winter special menu was limited and one can't mix-and-match with the standard menu: items were only available as part of the 2- or 3-course special. However it is excellent value if you are hungry enough for more than one course, and accompanying my chicken curry from the special menu was the best roti I've ever eaten. The restaurant area is attractive and spacious with lovely views through the tall glass doors (we were there for lunch). Be aware that there is a fee for parking.
