This place is a joke. Steer cleer. How has it not closed by now. Food takes forever and when it arrives it's not edible.

Went on a Sunday as few other places open. Uncomfortable and noisy, my wife had a Thai salad that was extremely poor. It had fried onion rings on top! I had a steak sandwich - mediocre.

A friend and I popped in here for cocktails one night. We had friendly and efficient service. Our jam jars tasted amazing. I also really liked the decor and the vibe of the place. Good value for money. Id definitely go again next time I visit South Africa.

We got here, waited 45 minutes for our main meal. When it arrived, the steak was tasteless, (clearly not bought for its quality) very thin slice as well. Sushi was ok... lady that served us was friendly, but the kitchen and restaurant manager needs to be more on top of serving the clients on time, and good quality food... Rather... More

Long waiting for the food, almost two hours. When it arrives most of the dishes are cold. Pasta is a sticky mess, prawns are cold in the middle. Avoid Bilos, there are nicer restaurants in town. And all restaurants in the mall will serve better food for the same price or less.

Surprisingly quick service for such a busy establishment, extensive menu... But when in the country areas meat is always the best option and in my instance it was brilliant... Definitely worth a visit if you are passing through Upington.

Bilo's is a good place to eat just outside Upington. The tables outside the bar, next to the lawn where an ostrich and some springbok stroll around are very nice. The tables between the bar and the bistro/supermarket are also good but can be windy at times. The menu is very variated and suitable for every meal at each time... More

Dinner was good. Service was friendly. Burgers and salads were great. Steak was a bit tough. Coffee was delicious. The kids played happily and wee entranced by the parrots.
