This small restaurant in Harfield Village offers excellent food at a very good price. The service was a little slow as they had run out of veggies but the food was worth the wait.

went to The Avenue for dinner. food was excellent. very tasty. portion size was better than most places of a similar nature. price range very reasonable. we were seated in the "VIP" area as we were told by the hostess. all this is, is a little separate area away from the main restaurant. this spoilt the ambience a bit as...

Granted, it was a Friday night. Still, if a crowded restaurant speaks for good food, then this is certainly one. The service was quick, efficient and friendly. The menu offers various types and serving sizes of food, coming out fresh from a fairly small kitchen, for all sort of foodies and a choice of different beverages. I had the Schnitzel... More

Another Harfield Village Gem. Great for steaks, but also an easy night out. The service is top notch, and the food brilliant. Has a strong family feel. The whole places gives off a feel of a personal labour of love. I would recommend It in a heartbeat.

We used our groupon voucher and ordered the sirloin steak, chicken wings and stuffed jalapeño peppers. All the food was very yummy!! Service was excellent! Very quick service and food was warm when we got it. Reservations are required for this restaurant. No kiddies menu. Ordered starters for the kids to eat as main meals.

I'm seriously fond of this buzzy bistro in downtown Harfield Village. The waiting staff never cease to amaze me with their happy smiles, care and attention. The down side of this restaurant is that I never seem to get past their fabulous fillet steak on the menu - this does it for me and I don't venture further, alas! Served... More

Went out with friends and the environment was relaxed and friendly. Service was efficient and not overbearing. Steaks were very good, especially the rib eye on the bone. Desserts could definitely do with improvement though.

Run by the proprietor of the now closed Hard Rock Cafe in Rondebosch, this little gem has garnered a loyal following by serving some of the better steaks in Cape Town at prices that won't mean your kid has to skip varsity. However, over the last few months, meat quality has steadily declined from tender, juicy and flavourful to sinewy... More

Excellent service to go with the amazing chilli poppers and calamari starters, served in a relaxed atmosphere. The decorations with the car paraphenalia a bit over the top for me unless you are a racing enthusiast. Back to the food - For the main meal - steaks were done to perfection! The restaurant's signature dish is definitely the ribeye steak.... More

Have been here numerous times both on business and with family. Have never been disappointed! The owner very often checks in with his dinners and will always be happy to share stories of past and present experiences. The food is excellent! The wine selection is of top class! Stop reading and head there....now!
