We were happy with the food. The service left much to be desired. However, I am sure that with a bit of training this could be improved. The staff were friendly but more interested in chatting to friends than looking after the guests. Therefore only a 3.

We have had breakfasts and lunches here and havr always enjoyed it very much. The food is great and the waiters friendly and helpful. They have baby chairs and a kiddies play area too.

Disappointed for not having read reviews before going to Europa. Breakfast as a whole was not well prepared. My wife's meal lacked basic ingredients (which were listed on the menu) and her meal failed all together. Presentation was not appetizing at all! My recommendation - skip

Recently had a family brunch here. The service started slow and small mistakes in the orders but the portions are good, the prices are above average but in exchange you get good quality food well prepared. Definitely recommended. Tip: The mozart cake and bacon and brie burger is excellent!

I recently had a business meeting at Europa Coffee shop in Nelspruit and was pleasantly surprised with the light meal I ordered. Maybe I didn't expect this kind of excellence from a coffee shop, but it was really nice. Nicely presented, good price and just the thing for a light "tappas"

Had breakfast there this morning. As usual the staff are very friendly and go out of their way their way to give good service. The chef must be taken to task: I asked for soft egg (and specified that the white must be set!!!). What did I get? Soft, raw egg. As stated by the Michelin chef on Masterchef -... More

Had early dinner there tonight. Disappointed that the wine we ordered was not available but was offered an alternative. The chef forgot some of the main meal's significant bits and had to rectify this. Ordered rump steak medium rare - it was rare and tough and difficult to eat, but the sauce was tasty. Should probably have ordered fillet. Found... More

This was my second visit to Europa and the food goes from bad to worse. On the last visit I ordered a sweet chilli chicken salad. It was more like a bowl of sweet chilli sauce with some lettuce and chicken on the side. Everything was so smothered in sauce you couldn't taste anything but sweet chilli. Completely defeats the...

Sadly this Europa lacks in everything the original Europa's that used to be in Hillbrow stood for there is food in vast quantities but lacking the taste of an individual restaurant more resembling food of a fast food joint, SORRY
