Had lunch here for the first time in a long while - and it will be the last time. One word aptly describes this restaurant: tired. From chipped crockery and glassware, to rickety sunbleached furniture Full Stop needs to make a call, and quickly. Either close shop or overhaul things in a big way. Ordered the 7th Avenue platter for... More

First opportunity to dine at this restaurant. First impression was very limited parking in the grounds, but I was met at the entrance of the parking by a very enthusiastic parking attendant who had some skills in arranging parking. The restaurant offers a rustic setting with indoor and outdoor dining. Service was very good, waiter was experienced and friendly. The... More

Love the vibe and open area on a good sunny day. In the winter there is a nice fire place to keep you warm. Food is very good, including their delicious pizza, my favourite is the Peasant pizza. Highly recommend the place.

I like it. There is a lot of space and it is ideal for a group of friends meeting for a casual lunch. There is an inside and outside area. The food was tasty, the service friendly, but it gave me a slight sense of neglect.

I recently went to Full Stop Cafe with my wife and mother on New Year's day and experienced the most dishonest waiter yet. They had a Lamb Rib starter special on an advertising board inside whilst we were outside. I requested the waiter order the Ribs on the board for me. After a few minutes he came back and asked...

A bunch of friends visited here for a year end dinner. The waitress was very attentive and fast and really dealt well with the big table. I had the schnitzel and chips with spinach and it was good, but nothing to write home about. The pizzas are tasty but chocolate fondant took the cake... The place is well decorated and... More

Parktown is filled with plenty great places to go and this has to be one of them. Another one of those old Victorian houses converted into a restaurant, serving great food. We had cranberry and brie pizza on the table and must admit that this was the winner of the meals ordered. Sitting outside is pleasant, inside I think would... More

We were a table of eight, normally quite a mission. We were greeted warmly and the drinks arrived quite promptly. Great food

A wonderful spot for a lazy Sunday lunch. It was lovely sitting outside in the courtyard under the trees. The fountain in the middle kept the small children occupied. And the food was good too. Prego roll, chicken breasts and the pizza were all delicious. I had a spinach and chicken salad - the chicken was especially yum! The waitress... More
