Food was just amazing. The atmosphere wasn't the best. Quite and bit cold. The decor was lovely and more importantly the food was well presented, like art on a plate and it was equally tasty. Pity I went there this week and it was nowhere to be found. It's been replaced by a very mediocre Hudson Burgers.

We were looking for a steakhouse and ended up at the Squire loft. When I first saw the menu I wasnt sure meat was their specialty. The place is quite modern and friendly. The waiters are extremely nice, accomodating our special requests making recommendations on the menu. I took the 220g fillet. It was cooked exactly as I ordered (medium... More

My husband and I recently stayed in Joburg in the Parkhurst area. We chose to go to The Squire's Loft for our last dinner in Joburg and we were blown away! The food was to die for and my husband was super excited to try some Ostrich. This was one of the more expensive meals we had in Joburg but... More

This was our first visit. It is really very good. Food beautifully served. We all enjoyed our respective meals. Mine wasn't the best ever (Café de Paris) but the others said theirs was excellent. Lovely Greek salad. Buzzy ambience. Great variety of food. Very nice service. Worth leaving your own suburb for.

i so enjoy a restaurant that is consistent. i'm pretty boring when it comes to what i enjoy and i tend to have the same thing every time. normally that opens you up for disappointed as your mind romanticizes an experience. at Squires Loft, that romanticized experience is repeated every time. again, i had the snails to start, tender as...

Great lunch experience. Fresh Scottish Salmon was divine. Salad was very fresh and crispy. Lekka Local Burger was one of the best burgers ever tried, with solid rump fillet instead of minced patty. You are served with warm bread and butter complimentarily. No fresh juices though. Wine list and fizzy drinks. Excellent and attentive service. Meat is not halal. Nice... More

Not cheap but the food was good and the service was too. It was a pretty quiet afternoon over a late-ish lunch so the service might have been less focused if they were busier but from my experience, it was a good meal, skillfully prepared and the service was personal and attentive.

I have eaten at squires five or six times now and the steaks are unreal. The T-bone is amazing and the fillet is something else as well. I ate at the Grillhouse in Rosebank a few times which has always been my favourite steakhouse and I think the Squires steaks are even better. The sauces are amazing as well which... More

A quick dinner with the family. Ample choice and great service. Nice to see the warm bread rolls back on the menu in JHB. Very good deboned chicken.

The service was excellent. They have an interesting wine list. Can recommend the mussels starter and the signature steaks.
