Pork belly ribs are a sure bet: they’re slow-roasted in sweet, tangy barbecue sauce. Chips are excellent – fat, but crisp on the outside, and fluffy inside.
The lamb rump espetada is juicy and flavourful – but not worth the hefty price tag. Burgers are a more affordable and popular option – think bacon, avo and emmental or crispy jalapenos and feta.
The fish comes somewhat overdone, despite a request for it to be underdone.
Finish with the delicious New York cheesecake. The crème brûlée could do with a hit of vanilla, and a thinner sugar top. (At present it’s a thick, somewhat impenetrable, sugar disc.)
The wine list is affordably priced, with reasonable mark-ups. Else have a craft beer from the taps.
Staff are quick to resolve small issues and have the kind of friendly charm that makes you want to become a regular.
Dark walls with wooden banquette seating, blackboard menus and a butcher’s diagram of a cow set the steakhouse scene. The partially enclosed outside area has a lovely wooden roof and greenery separates it from busy Belvedere Road. It can get loud when busy, but it’s a happy, buzzy kind of loud.
Friendly service and a cosy buzz make this suburban steakhouse a popular spot with locals.

Lovely neighbourhood spot in an otherwise restaurant-less wasteland. It was full – on a chilly Wednesday night. Food is tasty – not gourmet, but it's not trying to be. The steaks and lamb dishes are quite pricey, but burgers are a more affordable option (around R90 or so).
