Critic's review

Anna Montali

Food

The menu re-unites old fans with the famous beef stroganoff, steak tartare made with beef fillet and a touch of cognac, and gorgeous duck confit.

On arrival you are presented with a trio of butters, anchovy, garlic and plain, together with freshly baked home-made rolls. Start with marrow bones on toast. Progress to the trio of partially deboned quails. The quails are lightly chargrilled with olive oil and lemon juice, and really juicy.

Else opt for the roasted springbok shanks served in a savoury green peppercorn sauce with stewed fruit. The meat literally falls off the bone.

The steak tartar is an entertaining spectacle and is made up for you at the table.

Finish your memorable meal with lemon meringue ice cream and the crepe Suzettes, simmered in fresh orange and Cointreau.

Drinks

A very impressive wine selection, especially if you are in the mood to spoil yourself. There is also large selection of cigars paired with a delicious selection of imported cognacs.

Service

Silver service at its best. Banqueting waiters are very professional and traditional. They will only take your order once you have closed your menu.

Ambience

With its old-world grace and a touch of colonial style, this restaurant embraces the safari lodge look, complete with outdoor fires and lounges, trophy heads, ferns and other such memorabilia.

And…

There is a minimum charge of R300 per head and booking is essential.

User reviews

  • Oid school, colonial. Very friendly reception, knowledgeable maitre’d. Great winelist with excellent by the glass choice. Starters were below par: goats cheese mousse (warm!) tasteless, home-made tomato and basil soup disappointing. My son had the biggest burger we’ve ever seen, overkill in my opinion. My wife’s salmon overdone but very tasty. Again rude portions of thick-cut fries. My (chef’s choice) fillet on the bone was perfect, not the porcini and bone marrow sauce though, slightly chemical taste with lashings of soup powder I suspect. All in all an enjoyable lunch on a cold and miserable day.

  • There is literally NOTHING that I can say to justify every single meal that we have had at Wombles, from the moment you enter you are treated like royalty. The sirloin on the bone is a definite must!
