We visited Hemingways in early February and were blown away by the exquisite food, ambience and service. It was one of the best dinners I've had in a long while. For fine dining, they're not badly priced either.

Really had a excellent meal. Good wine and food, and a good experience overall. Had to wait a bit for the food, but it is expected for an event like these.

I recently ate here while staying at the Leriba Hotel. We had a fantastic dinner. I ordered the Ostrich filet and vegetables along with spicy tomato soup. The food was fantastic. Dessert was a creme brulee that hit the spot. Very nice restaurant for couples of business dinners.

I got spoiled with a dinner at Hemingways. The ostrich fillet was unbelievably good! Our waitron was top-class and recommended one of the most fantastic wines I've ever had: Ridgeback Shiraz. Atmosphere was perfect; service was p[erfect; food was perfect. Will most definitely visit again!

Went to this restaurant with great expectations. Friendly waiters, but lacking some training on wine presentation and menu. The presentation of the dishes were great, sadly the taste was not special at all and at best average. Sad to say i was disappointed in this restaurant ~ and my experience there.

The location is very central and ample safe parking is close to the front door.The friendly waitpersons met us at the door and showed the way to the terrace outside and had some sun-downers and a cheese platter from the dessert menu for a early starter, very delicious.
