We have been to the restaurant a few times but this was the first time in a while. It was quite busy but our waiter was really quick. All our food was really well prepared and tasty. I had king prawns with a baked potato and veggies. The prawns was some of the best I've ever had. It was juicy... More

The place was crowed, hot and stuffy. The food was ok but the service was slow. You battle to get parking. This place is rather a place where you go for a pub lunch on a Friday afternoon. I think Founders need a make over.

Have been coming to this restaurant over the past 15 years or so and again had a great Saturday evening meal. Good value for money in a relaxed atmosphere.

Always a winner with sumptuous, well prepared meals from a generous menu. Friendly and efficient staff in a very relaxed atmosphere. Good value for money. You will want to go back again and again.

The bread rolls were still the from the oven when it reached the table, Oxtail was good and the steak was very good. Service was very quick. We will return again. They have good specials during the week.

Still a genuine restaurant where one does not feel obliged to gobble and go to make space for the next round of customers.

If you feel like a steak, stunning oysters and mostly adults, this is the place to go. They have never disappointed us and the owners is always around to keep an eye on things.

Although the steaks were excellent, the mussels were in a stodgy thick tasteless sauce and I wouldn't recommend them. But all the other food was fantastic and the steaks awesome. The service, although great, was a bit slow and the food took a bit too long to come out, but the waitress was great and friendly. All in all we... More

Frequented by locals who appreciate good local cuisine. Due to popularity extended waiting time required. Visited on Wednesday but still very busy. Discovered the special for Wednesday's was TBone steak for only R60. Amazing Voortrekker decor and truly South African home cooked meals. Would recommend! For real South African experience try out their pap & gravy. Yummy!

I go to Founders infrequently, the standard of their food is consistent and fair. I had a rump steak with chips,the steak was cooked very well . The scattering of chips and nothing else on the plate did not entice me to devour this dish . The service was adequate. I will be back but not in a hurry .
