Crawdaddy’s, established 1995 has become a landmark in Pretoria for it’s Seafood and Meat Dishes, and has created a huge loyal family of patrons that keep the restaurant buzzing the year in and out. We believe word of mouth and value for money to be our strongest advertisments, and customer service satisfaction the key element in our establishment. Centrally situated in Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Limpopo. On the culinery side, Crawdaddy’s marries the best of both worlds, offering an extensive variety of seafood and meat dishes of exceptional quality. This fused with local, mediteranean, thai and portuguese cuisine and our signature dishes, such as chowders and combo’s prompts gastronomical melody!
We visited this restaurant for the first time today.After ordering wine, we expected the usual bread rolls- only to be told that they are not provided.We waited exactly1 hour for our food which is unacceptable.By this time our wine was nearly finished! Anyway, the food was ok, not wonderful.We will definitely not go there again.
Me and my wife went to Crawdaddy's Menlyn and it was our first ever Crawdaddy's experience.
The ambiance was amazing and the restaurant looked busy from us stepping in the door.
We were seated fast and we received great service from the wait staff.
We asked the waiter what he would recommend and he told us that the rump is simply exceptional.
I ordered the 500g Rump and my wife ordered the 300g Rump with the magic mushroom sauce and feta.
To put it in simple words, the meat was excellent. We did not wait long for our food at all and the ambiance and chatter of happy customers around us made the short wait worth the while.
The Rump was succulent and juicy and cooked to medium rare perfection. I don't know what sauce they put over it but damn it's good. My wife ordered her Rump medium-well and she was smiling after every bite. We both ordered our steak with chips. Now their chips are something else as well. They are portioned correctly, cooked perfectly and seasoned with herbs and spices which make them a great accompaniment for a juicy steak and a cold beer.
While we had our dinner, the manager made turns more than a couple of times to make sure that our meal was going down as expected. I really love this, it might seem unimportant or even intrusive for the average person but I love seeing a restaurant that can work under busy pressure and still make time to get a smile on a customers face.
After our meal we had a couple more drinks and my wife ordered a chocolate desert (can't remember the name now) but it had a dark chocolate shell on the outside and a moist cake inside. It was absolutely devine.
We asked for the bill and I was amazed that the food and drink we had was actually affordable and well worth the money spent.
I asked to speak to the manager and I told him with great pleasure that we had a great evening and that their food was on another level of great! He smiled and thanked me for my compliments and he then asked us if we would like a dessert shooter on the house. Now that is great service and man oh man, that shooter was amazing.
I would recommend Crawdaddy's Menlyn to anyone that is looking for a great night out, great food and hospitality.
Nothing was over the top or complicated, the food was simple and delicious and when compared to other restaurants I have been to like, La-Pentola and Tribecca, Crawdaddy's just scores higher points in all the categories available.
Looking forward to my next Crawdaddy's experience.
What a fantastic spot. - We love going to Crawdaddys Menlyn - great service with a smile!
